Tom’s pics

“Well. Alastair, from one old man to another, there is nothing that makes me happier than showing my model railroad photos and my track plans formerly drawn with WinRail and MS Paint but currently drawn with WinRail and Paint.NET.

Here is a selection of attachments including progress on the Northwest Crossing MRRC Parker module and progress on the crude and vacuum unit that caused so much trouble but is due to bring so much glory when it finds its place on Free-MoN modules dedicated to petroleum transport, refining, and general handling on or near Houston’s own ship channel as seen from Google Earth.

    What a marvelous layout, the oi refinery has so much detail it looks like it might actually produce motor spirit.

  2. BOTH SIGHT AND SOUND OF YOUR FANTASTIC LAYOUT GIVE THIS OLD MAN A THRILL, FROM WHAT I SEE OF THE BUILDINGS IN THE BACKGROUND, CAN I ASSUME YOU ARE IN “GREAT BRITTAN”? THANK YOU FOR SHARING WHAT THE LONG AND SOMETIMES TEDIOUS HOURS OF WORK YOU HAVE DONE BUILDING YOUR LAYOUT HAVE PRODUCED, I NEARLY EXPECTED TO SEE THE PEOPLE MOVING ABOUT…
