As I mentioned in my last post, I wasn’t happy with the perspective on my parking lot, so I redid it. I changed the angle of the parking lot and reshot the photos of the cars. I lowered the horizon and added trees, larger in the foreground and smaller closer to the horizon. I added a photo of an n scale building close to the horizon.
Below are the before and after photos. I think it looks more like looking off into the horizon than it did before.
Any comments or suggestions for improvement?

I acquired my first Lionel Train Set Christmas 1953 (3rd grade) and additional trains/stock every Christmas there after.
This went on for 5 years and accumulated enough to cover a board 4′ x 12′. By todays value, of $2,100.00, using E-bay as a reference, I’m in the process of resurrecting my childhood experience.
I’m retired, 73 and no room to start my project which now includes what I have collected over the last 10 years and my original layout. This required an accessory building to include my train room.
I have attached pictures of my collection and start of construction. If you feel this undertaking is worthy of your posts I will send updates as we go.
And Jim’s been in touch again – if you want to refresh your memory, his last post is here.
I’ve recently purchased two new ScaleTrains GEVO Rivet Counter Tier 4 GEVO ET44C4 BNSF Diesel engines.
This is a really great looking model with super detailing and they run very smoothly. They actually have rotating bearing caps. In any event, I thought I’d do another video of the layout with a consist of the new engines with intermodal rail cars.
Latest ebay cheat sheet is here (still updated everyday).
A huge thanks to Jack and Jim.
I’d love to know how Jim gets his videos looking like they do. Stunning stuff!
That’s all for today folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
