Pequea Creek
Title:  Pequea Creek
Description:  This is one of my favorite areas on the railroad. It is a shifting area with much of track weaving in and out between the buildings. If you look closely at the water area, the "white pipe" sticking up out of the water next to the row boat is a periscope with bulging eys, checking out the bikini glad girl in the rowboat.

Staging Loops
Title:  Staging Loops

The loops in the back are new and give us the opportunity to operate the railroad as a point to point. It is an area that is a GREAT addition to the club layout!! Good job guys!!
