Hello fellow modelers. It's been a while since I last posted here but progress continues on my NY&LB layout.

Trains have been running over the completed half and track de-bugging has slowed down as most of the issues involving the trackwork have been resolved. I've now turned to the scenery on the upper level with much anticipation.

I'm beginning construction of the Shark River rolling lift bridge after just completing the Sylvania Avenue wood overpass. The Shark River Bridge will be similar to the completed Manasquan bridge shown below. I plan to finish up much of the upper level scenery before moving to the lower level.

You can visit my construction log at my NY&LB web site. Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Nice job! I always wanted a completed model of BRIELLE the draw bridge on the manasquan river. I would still love to come down and see your layout in person sometime. It looks fantastic.

When I saw there was a NY&LB layout on the list, I suspected it would be yours! I'll try to stop in as well!

Hi everyone -

I can't believe its been over three years since I last posted on this forum! Work continues on my NY&LB and the pace has been picking up some since I have started on scenery at the Bay Head loop and yard. Shown below, the middle loop forest is well under way.

I'll try and check back more often. Hope everybody has a great Holiday!!
