I visited Crazy Horse just a couple of years ago. A very impressive sight indeed. It made Mount Rushmore seem silly by comparison.

I like to "Hide" things on my layout-- things you don't find on other "Gardens"- That's what they call layouts in Balmer Merlin. I've done Mount Rushmore and the Old Man on the Mountain (Lost his noze recently)

Define Irony,

Right after the New Hampshire quarter came out with the "Old Man of Mountain" on it, the mountain started falling apart. When NC came out with out Wright Bros quarter Ohio got mad at us because the Bros were born there. Its a little off topic but, and interesting side note. Great work Fred, at least you are giving a final view of something that is going to take a long time to see.

When I finally get all 50 states represented on the layout- I'm going to make a small book to go with the layout and use the quarters and state flags to list each "scene" so those that go beyond me can recognize what madness I was thinking.:huh:

Read again. Well the first problem is, they are not on MY layout. But I think the first two have Marklin couplers at the back. Hard to see clearly. Two of the "B" units are turned around.

There are three give aways...

The couplers (best to be seen in front), the rail and roadbed joiners (best to be seen in the rear) and the words "Santa Fe" on the A unit. They all are in the wrong direction on the last two engines. But I cheated too, I changed Opera to 300%... B)

Yes to all three- and possibly the shadow between #2 and #3 at the foto edges where the bottom of the mirror is. You have some pretty good Biopticals.
Fred
I'll trasfer 3 points to you shortly- Thanks for playing!
I sure wish I had 4!

This is to show the "Looking Glass" trick--Pay no attention to the scale as it is a blown up copy I used in another trick foto to make the trains look smaller.
Uwe- I transferred 3 points- you went from 403 to 406.
Terry- You are Special getting Gonged twice!:)

Hello Fred,

Thank you!

I love those little games. I'm thinking about starting a quiz thread. We have one at the Z-Friends-Europe board. Someone started it long ago asking a question that is remotly railroad related, and that mostly can be answered by research on the net (if not someone knows the answer with out looking somewhere else...). It might be just a question that only needs a text answer, or it could be a picture where you have to find out where it came from or the asnwer could just be a pictur. Who wins with an correct answer has to find the next question...

GreetingZ, HilZen,

Uwe
