Absolutely wonderful! I'd love to know about the layout.

FWIW, the color scheme of the Sante Fe Southern Pacific locomotive in #4 was dubbed "Kodachrome." The merger was denied by the DOJ on anti-trust grounds, leading to the merger of Burlington Northern and ATSF (BNSF) and the eventual purchase of Southern Pacific (Rio Grande) by Union Pacific. BNSF restored the classic red and silver "Warbonnet" locomotive color scheme on many of the old STSF routes.

Saw a TV show on the effort and time and the work that goes into building these complex models. That is not a hobby, it is an life's work. Amazing.
