GRENBESI sent me another pic of his layout. I like how the mirror makes the layout look much bigger than it is. Not exactly scale but who cares? The bungalows and track look right at home. Take a ride through Westchester some time on the Harlem Line of the Metro North. Tuckahoe and Crestwood (New York) don't look a whole lot different than this scene (and have looked that way for the last 90 plus years)!
Another spectacular ride on the Metro North is down the Hudson Line. One of the best kept secrets in New York! Take the Hudson Fall Foliage Ride coming up. (Check out the link above for a current railfan trip.)
Some great Standard Gauge in Cold Spring, NY (off the Hudson Line). Really, I have picked up some great sets there from Once Upon A Time Antiques in Cold Spring, NY. The train ride is also spectacular. Also some great railfanning up there as well (there is a huge CSX Curve on the other side of the Hudson River and tons of great passenger trains roll up the Hudson Line).
