A very special "thank you" to everyone who has followed the progress of Thunder Mesa over the years, read my articles, commented on these posts and videos, sent me cool stuff, purchased my designs, or made a contribution towards the completion of the railroad. You guys are the best and I am humbled by the positive responses I have received. The layout exists to entertain and bring joy and there's much more to come.
Yes, I know it's still weeks away, but tonight's Open Studio will kick off the season for me and Halloween is my favorite holiday after all. The photos above were taken during last night's final lighting and effects check and that got me in the just the right mood for this spooky season. Hope to see some of you there tonight! Thanks for checking in, amigos. Adios for now!
