Travis-here is a photo of #3 on the long bridge. It is indeed a Bachmann On30 OF loco converted to a 2-4-0 with 4 wheel tender. It is such a chunky loco that it transfered over to 3/8 scale with just a new cab and some larger PSC parts. I will try to take another shot later but I found this one on the desktop.

Here is a photo of the "renovation" of the Gila Hotel in downtown Mogollon. The ladies were shown somewhere else earlier (I forgot where). There is still more work to be done and several "gentlemen" will be added to the scene.



Silver Creek runs beside the road, the buildings have boardwalks to gain access to the front doors.      Woodie

Woodie,

This is amazing work.  Somehow I have been asleep at the wheel but this stuff has real character and texture.  I studied the detail in your pictures and to be real honest, I think most people lack major detail in these areas but you have captured my attention.  This is good stuff, I mean real good stuff.  This gets 5 mooses for attention to detail in the smallest areas:moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:

Thanks guys.  I am building new stuff and when I get photos taken, I will send them here. I really believe that this will be the "last" layout I will build. I have maybe 4 more sections planned(well, not really planned, but thought about) and will get around to it soon. Since I have gotten into operation on this layout, I want to build the last piece now and then be able to actually run from A to Z and back and build the other sections in the future to extend the line.  Nothing is really finished, over time I will add more and better details and probably re-do some stuff but so far I am satisfied that I am doing the best I can do. I love this hobby.

Woodie,

I have to agree with Kens (loggeron30) last comments about the detail you have displayed in your railroad. I keep reading this thread and enjoy it more and more everytime. I used to refer back to the old photos of the Allen G&D for inspiration but it sure seems like I'm looking more to your Mogollon more and more for that extra spark. Between you, Herb, and several of the other veteran modelers, this hobby just gets better and better all the time. Thanks for sharing this great venture!

James

Some months back, Jake (yetter man) suggested that I get up on the roof of the motor home & take a photo of the layout. Well, Jake..this un's for you.



At far left is end of line (for now) at the long trestle. The layout twists around and ends at the enginehouse and turntable on the far right. Also shown is how the layout sections sit on camera tripods. While the layout is covered with plastic sheet, this configuration has withstood 40-60 MPH winds and heavy rain with very little damage.  Right now, I am working on "backdrops" which will eventually encircle the layout, the back of which obscures much of the high line from this camera angle. Not shown are the miles of electrical cable used to supply power to the...naaw, I'm kiddin'.         Woodie

Yeah...Woodie has all that buried in the foam and covered with several tons of real dirt...NOT!

As always - just plain spiffy as all get out.

We need close-ups of the new mine building that has its back to us in this shot (seeing as how I never know when you're gonna be uncovering the layout).

Here are 3 more photos from Mogollon.



#1 shown at the shop before the daily run.



#5 out on the high line switching some ore cars.



And for James, a shot of the new Chupacabra mine building. Lots more to be done but it's time to run more trains, not mess with "details".    Woodie
