HO scale Tomiko branch line layout, an old santa fe GP38-2 unit is being scrapped due to a rotten frame, but the 567 prime mover seems to still have some miles left on her, now the task or getting it out.
Model train enthusiast James Risner used his collection of HO-scale railroad tracks and model trains to create this endless spiral on the floor of his living room.

The trees for this bank are pretty much done, there are about 20 or so. I’ll need to spin the model again so that I can start doing the other side. Still lots and lots of trees to make, but it is closing fast.
