Another masterpiece, JIM!
I have to take the Spousal Unit to the airport on Sunday and pick her up the following Sunday.
I'll see if I can work a side trip by - I'll have to resort to dead reckoning navigation as the red car was wrecked a while back and this one does not have navigation in it.

Mission Gorge Road. The Highlands. I'll be here.

So, here are two photos that show the layout from the normal perspective. Sherrel didn't show up this past weekend and too bad for him. Scenically this is my best layout. All my 4'x8' layout have been different and I'm not a real fan of Eastern Woodlands railroads, but I gave it a try. While this layout is special and belongs in a museum type environment where a train can simply go round and round for the enjoyment of the people. I've added so many trees, ALL I had, that access to "playing trains" is limited; thus a display layout. This suits me and to be reasonable in someone's house they would probably have to take out many trees. I haven't counted them, but if you want you can figure it out. The result is a layout for those of us who like scenery and trees. Visually looking from the layout at all angles is actually quite a treat. Remember this layout is on casters and can be spun around 360 degrees. More closeup

Awesome looking, JIM.
I didn't think you wanted me to stop the other morning - it would have been around 5 AM as I dropped the Spousal Unit off at the A/P for a 6 AM departure. No excuse - I should have called you.
I have to pick her up Monday evening ... I have not been told the flight nor time as of now. (originally Today, but things change.)
She is traveling on a "pass" (former employee free transport), but "standby" (if there is a vacant seat remaining).
Hang loose - Will let you know if the times work out?
