    Why is the flag being towed the wrong way

  5. John N Frye says:

    Love the railroad. Your commentary on the scenes is great! I do the same thing as I build and paint my scenes. This helps in many ways, because when it’s all done my little people need to work and make a living. They need a place to park, a way to get to work, and ladders, stairs and doors to get around. All this adds the realism and “life” to a scene or building. OK. it’s fun too!

  6. This layout is a lifetime of dreams and ambition for the builder… and a Wonderful thing to look at as a work of ART.

  7. Bob says:

    The flag is being towed the wrong way because it is been nicked by a british plane from the united states and does not detract from all the beautifull work thats gone into this layout……..

  8. Lynn Taubeneck says:

  19. Gerry says:

    Although the gesture is appreciated, you still may here this a lot, the American flag is being towed backwards and there are no excuses for that insult.
    All that being said, it’s a very nice layout.

  29. John Meyer says:

    Sheldon, I have never seen so much “action” being packed into this much space! That is truly noteworthy. I surmise that this might be partially attributed to your concept “if I like it I build it”. Wonderful stuff ……

    This is a very nice layout. I love the freestyle of including what you like. I see a lot of comments on the flag but, no explanation. The reason. it is backward is because, by flag code the flag is never to be presented in retreat. It is the same reason it is displayed with the blue field to the right on the right sleeve of uniforms and when painted on the right side of vehicles or aircraft.

  31. colin says:

    Well Sheldon Does your wife know about your “sleeping car” or is it really a “party car “?.

    Round House looks great. Usually I’m not so keen or a layout that so busy but this one is so full of interesting items I’m hooked. Oh no pond sorry. Just a little point either your vintage plane is capable of flying backwards or your pulling the stars and stripes the wrong way round. Great fun Colin Scotland
