Thanks for the compliments. The GP is the only powered unit. The tank car is from Trainaidsa and the rest are from Shapeways. The boxcar in front and the caboose are Jessie's and the second boxcar is Neil's.

Well, I've started to remodel my T scale layout. The 2-day train show I did allowed me to find the weak areas. I've removed the incline. It was too steep and too abrupt. I've also removed the points....one of them was causing problems with stalling/hesitating for all of my locos. I've also decided to add a second track that will go over the first track and the river. I'm removing the power supply plugs that plug into the track as they proved unreliable. I'm soldering wires to the rail joiners instead. This is all made more difficult because all of the buildings and scenery are still there except for the end where the mountain was. I'm still waiting on an order of replacement track. I hope to have this ready before the end of the month when I'm doing another 2-day show.
