Last week, I took some photos for a layout feature for O Scale Trains magazine, and while shooting a cover shot, I got this shot which didn't work as there's fascia on each side. So, I put it through some filters and really like how it turned out:

Greg Nidifer runs his train past an opposing commuter train bound for Buladeen with 'Captain' Cy Crumley waiting out back impatiently.

Last night, I was playing around with my cell phone and managed to get a halfway decent shot with the main lights out...

I've not done much with the layout recently as I'd had a pinched nerve in my neck that made my left arm very uncomfortable, but it's much better now.
Very soon, I fully intend on completing the Quonset hut for the Army railroaders. I'm really looking forward to this project.
My layout is on the Jan/Feb cover of O Scale Trains magazine, which is just now getting into the hands of subscribers.

I didn't even use Photoshop on this shot. I only cropped the photo, all the FX are in real time in the shot!
