Dick Elwell's Hoosac Valley Lines

Following CSS I had the opportunity to visit Dick Elwell's Hoosac valley Lines in North Adams Mass.  Deep in the Birkshire's it is an ideal setting for the New England Railroad.  Dick is a master model railroader and very fine host.  His style really captures the fall colours and his use of Craftsman Structures is spectacular.  Hand laid track and weathered locomotives and rolling stock really bring the railroad to life.  Thanks again for the opportunity to visit and take pictures.   A previous post of his railroad can be found here.

Thanks Chris for the photo tour of Dick Elwells layout it's just breathtaking! How is the radio station coming along for the new hill overlooking the lake?

Your welcome. I have been very busy as I was preparing my clinic for CSS. The travel and all really did not allow for time to work on the Radio station.. I have not started the kit yet. Will post when I start the build.
