    Thanks, Manny. I'll be eager to see their post-production Frisco example. Based on the pre-production work, I think it would look pretty good, with a little bit of Friscoizing.

    Anyone modeling the St. Louis Subdivision between Lindenwood and Chaffee would certainly need a plentiful helping of Mikes.

    Best Regards,

    It needs a headlight with a visor and a coonskin number plate to start with.

    ... and a "tall" cab.

    Wow... if they pull this off... it's getting harder and harder to resist doing a "dual era" concept for the in-process layout.

    Of course, I really like the synchronized chuff n' puff smoke of the MTH steam engines and upcoming BLI steam engines.
