    Oh man that looks great!

  2. Hey Mike! Loving the layout so far. I love the scenery so far by the trestle, and I am glad you got help from Mr. G with plastering. In my opinion, a trail leading up to the Indian Ruins would be better then a road, it wouldn’t take too much away from the scenery and the ruins itself as a road would I thought. Also, with the era you are sticking in, a road would maybe look out of place, as opposed to a trail but you’d have to see if you place more roads in the scenery in the future.

  3. Nice update enjoyed the new scenery!

    Love the Indian ruins Mike! Robin is doing a fine job on painting the fountain too. Cheers, Dan

  5. Love it, Mike! You're doing such a great job with creating scenery on your layout. I especially like your curved steel bridge, pine trees, wooden trestle and other mountain scenery! Your trains look so awesome (almost real) running through the new scenery. Viewing it makes me feel like I'm looking out the side window of my semi truck as I drive north from Albuquerque on I-25 toward Santa Fe and beyond. Your scenery is really that good!

    I only have one constructive criticism. The Native American ruins were a bit hard to see until you zoomed in extremely close with your camera. The close-up shows their astonishing details. You did such a wonderful job on the ruins, but it all disappears as you back away. Maybe their lack of visibility from a distance was caused by the camera lens or by insufficient lighting. Whatever the cause, the ruins blended into the background so well that it made them virtually impossible to distinguish from a few feet away.

    Most Native American cliff dwellings that I've seen in real life (Montezuma Castle in Arizona and Mesa Verde in Colorado) have very light sandstone-colored walls that contrast against the darker rock face into which the dwellings were built. But in your video, the dwellings almost appear to be the same dark color as the recessed rock face in which they reside, making them very hard to see. Do they look like that to you, or is it just an optical illusion created by the camera?

    By the way, be sure to tell Robin that she is quite the artist, too, as she is doing a fantastic job with painting the fountain details. Keep up the great work on ACTRR 3 and, as always, happy rails to you!

    The up date was great I really liked the bridge area the trees look are just right. Glad to see the saved the bridge… really liked it on the actrr 2 . I do have a question about Kato cross overs I did the ds 64 push button per your other channel. I used a ps14 to power the 64 . Testing it ( the cross over there was very little movement and would not throw the rails. I have three and this happened on all three. The single turn outs work great. Did you try the button on the cross over?
