This is the progress of my backyard railroad as of Sep 30th, 2007. The rack is laid and ballasted, some of the town buildings are in and interior lights hooked up. Notice the train lamps on each far end of the railroad. They light up at night as well. The mountain and pond are just awaiting a coat of cement and paint. The tunnel openings and track inside the mountain is done but the rest of the track outside of the mountain line still needs to be laid. Tamara and I scratch built the wooden trestles and they are almost finished. A few more pieces need to be added for details. Our bridge company TrainBridges.com built the steel bridges and I built the wooden bridge.
