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
Is your wye fully functional? I mean are the tracks only
mechanically connected or also electronically functional?
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.

Beautiful Tony - I'm loving that station and water tower but the entire display is stunning. Front-paged!
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.

Dang, Now I REALLY wish I could have made it to Brick Fiesta. Awesome layout
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!
Your gorgeous layouts are simply the best!
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!)

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.
