Your models and layouts are of unmatched high quality.

Seeing it displayed like this together is almost intimidating...

I especially adore the colour scheme used for this coal tender

Palestine03

Is your wye fully functional? I mean are the tracks only

mechanically connected or also electronically functional?

Beautiful layout. The station build is terrific and I love the engine house, very prototypical. Outstanding work!!

Thanks! No, the wye is only mechanically functional. If I owned one more pair of 9v switches, and I used some form of tape to electrically block off the different sections I could. A triangular setup like this would short out a 9v system otherwise. As it is a pair of PF switches keeps the arms of the wye electrically segregated.

Thanks much! I posted the station and water tower here a while ago, I plan to post pictures of the engine shed by itself in the near future.

Thanks!

Thanks! I'm going to have a lot of fun with it at Brick Fiesta. I plan to take some video of a few of my steamers going through the wye.

Unreal work as usual Tony! :thumbup:

Thanks! Though to be fair this is my first true layout, and even then it's more of a diorama than anything else. I've never had a layout of my own before (and this is far too big to fit in my house!)

Mate that is stunning, top notch job.

I'm especially loving the water tower :thumbup:

Thanks much!

Beautiful layout. The station build is terrific and I love the engine house, very prototypical. Outstanding work!!

Thanks! I did a lot of study on the real buildings, while I had to make certain sacrifices I still feel I captured their spirit.

I have been browsing the net for pictures from this apparently

famous Palestine Wye from the Texas State Railroad.

I easily recognise the engines and the settings - very lovely!

Do you have more detailed close-ups of you carriages?

I could not find them on your flickr.

The layout looks absolutely beautiful! It's probably even better in person :thumbup: A few more closeups would be great.

Thanks much! I've tried my best to capture the spirit of the engines and the park in my MOCs, I'd like to think I succeeded.

I linked to a picture to coaches #42 & #44 in the original post, which is also in this folder:

Thanks much! Closeups of what exactly? I've taken very close and detailed shots of everything, linked to in the original post, except the wye itself and the Engine shed (which I haven't quite finished just yet).

I really love your creations and layouts

Thanks! I appreciate it.
