    John: You're doing a nice job. I always enjoy your updates. Keep 'em coming! That's an effective looking slice of the 12th St. bridge! As you may recall, I too, am going to be basing my layout on the West Bottoms, so I always find interest in your pictures/dialogue. As for my KC Lines effort, at this point I haven't decided yet whether I'll attempt to reflect actual scenes, or just go for the "feel" of the West Bottoms of my youth....

    Unrelated to my experiment with Trainz, but instead concerning T:ANE... The initial reports from the trenches is that it is fraught with issues and takes a very, VERY powerful computer to run it acceptably smoothly. There is also a LOT of concern being voiced about the need for it to ping the N3V server in order to function, basically meaning that if N3V (the company that now produces Trainz) shuts down (or has server issues), then you...

It also sat facing the KCT line, but I did not have enough space for that. A picture of the actual tower is on the website. Mine is a kitbashed Walthers model.

    Jim, I used sheet metal on my West Bottoms. It came in a fifty foot roll at Home Depot, my memory is about $50. The good points; lighter than masonite, easy to cut with shears, works well around corners, it you roll blue paint on it some of the white shows through, not just solid blue. The cons, seams hard to hide, one person can have trouble laying out long piece, I worked in about 12 foot sections leaving about four seams. I do remember...

    One more thing about the Mt. Vernon caboose, the trustee owner plates that are mounted in the upper left of the car are broken and have chunks of them missing. If the pic of 1202 shows her with no lantern hangers, and broken trustee plates, it would be very strong evidence. That Mt. Vernon caboose is a gem, its the best example of a surviving 1200-74 because it is so straight, so complete, and has very little rust coming through.
