More random shots at a few of my places on the layout.

Night time at the Unaka factory, making barrels into the wee hours of the morning:





Twilight down at Grindstaff’s store at Sadie, Tennessee.

The old folks are going to have to break up their armchair general discussions of the war,
“across the water” and head home if they want any supper tonight!

Nicely done.

I particularly like the setting sun over the mountain tops.

Thanks, Tom!

That's actually the wall and I did the backdrops as profiles of mountains as in real life,
that's what you see between the trees there.

Lee - I enjoy your photos. 

I also like the way you've done the backdrop. 
That's a nice lighting effect. 

I've just started my backdrop and may have to borrow your idea.
Very cool.

Thanks, Tom!


I recently realized I’m at the 5th anniversary of the start of the layout.

So, here we are on August 18, 2014, the first train reaches the opposite end of the line.
Only 6 days before, the first train moved on about 3 feet of track at the other end:





5 years later, the same spot (and same locomotive):

Time flies.

Your layout is looking great.


Your post sent me to my thread.
 
This current layout,
planned to be operationally complete within a year,
will hit the 3-year mark in November.  

I still have a few things to do,
before I can claim it is operationally complete.

Lee,

I've been meaning to tell you for a long time how much I enjoy your "vintage" photographs.

That shot of the five-year anniversary really shows how well executed your layout is.
What a great shot of a very impressive layout.

By the way, your structures have inspired a lot of what I am trying to accomplish on the YCW.

Tom

Reg, Thomas and Steven, thanks for the kind words!


Tom, I'm especially honored by your comment but in all humility,
I think your structure work is on a totally different (meaning: better) level than mine.
