Dear David & Crew,
I have been following your old and new project for some time. It is not aonly the sheer size that is astnoshing (especially compared to European standards), but also the amount of detail you managed to put into it. Well done! It has really been a source of inspiration to me and I cannot wait the see it progress.
After years of modelling in H0 scale I switched to O scale about 2 years ago. Currently I am working on a layout based on the Dutch prototype in the 60’s. O scale is quite rare in The Netherlands and you have to build most things by yourself, including rolling stock. But… that is part of the fun. Here are some pics to look at if you are interested. The full story is at: floodland.nl/aim/index_en.htm
Thank you for sharing your project!
PS. By coincidence I am just about to fly to the US to tour the southwest with my wife and daughter. Maybe we will get so see some real US trains, you bever know
