State of the Layout - April 2015

Great job, mostly by Luke, of capturing the state of the layout.
Also the latest incarnation of Luke&NickVille.
Looks pretty good!

A Blank slate, and they're off,…

Nick's Bridge/Tunnel/Tower.
He's also the master at re-railing loose cars.

Nick's Inspiration, George Sellios' Franklin and South Manchester.

Luke quickly assembles a town.
Look at that concentration!

Luke's hand painted Hot rod.
With the local freight thundering by.
The boys do all their work while the trains are running.
Much more exciting that way!

Some creative help,...

Luke's a huge creative influence, as well.
But, he moves too fast to get pictures. :-)
Now, where'd he go?
