I would like to give you another idea of some of the changes here.
The first thing is the second track under the hill/mountain that I added a short time back.
That was a pain to do without tearing out the hill over the top it. And, yes, there is more clearance there than it looks.

Which one is the original track? How did you lay the new track?

The track to the left is the original. You see the slot to the right? That's how I put the track up into place and then fastened the rail joiners into place. The other end of the track was much easier as I could see what I was doing. Most of this end of the track was done 'in the blind'.

Nice!
 
That looks like a classic Buick Skylark, maybe 1970ish...

I'd have to check, but I think you're right. Yes, it is 70ish.

It is either a Skylark or a Cutlass and I think what little I can see of the taillights looks more like a Skylark.
 
Oh, we're supposed to be talking about trains, nice RS-3!

Is that PRR 1120 peeking out of the shed?

That's gotta be the smallest Loew's I have ever seen, but I bet the townspeople are grateful for it anyway
