Couple more shots of the Everett depot.

I think this depot turned out pretty good.
It's a retexture of someone else's work.

That's right up my street, Steve! The cozy "Petticoat Junction" atmosphere of shortlines is why it's my most loved genre of railroading. :good:

That shot of Denton is spectacular! It`s actually very reminiscent of where I live in western Pennsylvania with the old B&O Northern Sub which later became the Knox and Kane. The line twisted and wound past farm fields and small towns.

Downtown Denton.

I'll probably add a few more buildings and more stuff. Make it look lived in.
Funny story, Way back in 2009 when my son was 12 years old he took a liking to "Trains". It was something we did together.
He even went so far as to having me open an account for him on Elvas Tower.
Steve is now 24 years old and is into cars and other things as far from trains as possible. He looks at my stuff and likes it though.

Hi, my name is Randy

So, I've been messing with a terrtex editing method described by Steve Thompson in these posts.
There are a couple different sizes of bricks here. I'm just experimenting right now.

They look real nice at a distance but up close the microtex takes a lot away.
