    Papa's Train Layout

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but since the layout does have Christmas the year round I'll put it here and trust Chantelle will move it to the proper spot.
    I started my train layout in March of 2007 here is a link to a photo-bucket album that I'm using to document it's construction.
    I update it as i begin new projects and I'm working on adding text to the images.

    Wow! I was expecting a train set with a few little ornamental buildings, but my expectations were exceeded 100 times over! Epic job!

    Thanks guys I'm glad you enjoyed it.
    I have had trains my whole life and as much as I enjoy running my trains I think I like creating my own little world even more.

    Thanks Mike
    I used to have a web site to document the layout but it got too be to much hassle.
    I'm hoping to replace it with the photo bucket library.
    Did you think there were to many pictures?
    Did you find the descriptions useful to explain what was going on?
    I ask because I'm using the ATC forum as guinea pigs before I send the address and password out to family and fellow train enthusiasts.
    Thanks again for your comments.
