Mark’s video of his stunning layout

Does anyone recognise these pics??

I can’t find the copy that goes with them. So if they are yours, please let us know about the layout!











And now Mark’s video. It’s quite short – but it really does show how detailed his layout is.

A big thanks to everyone.

That’s all for today folks.

Please do keep ’em coming. It’s getting a bit thin on he ground this end.

And if today is the day you get started on your layout, the Beginner’s Guide is here.

    Al, Don’t know who belongs to those pictures, but they’re dated June of 2014. I do remember seeing them posted here a month or two ago with the story about the layout, though. Mark’s layout and video with the Shay is fantastic.

    I am also a Shay fan saw the box car and said there’s one like mine . He’s been to Cass Scenic RR in W Virginia to have gotten it . Every rail fan it the eastern part of the U S needs to at least once go to Cass . Ride the Bald Knob train . I used to go every year for rail fan week end . Met so many of the same people each year it was like a happy family reunion. Hello to any old Cass friends Ron
