2 - Send me a photo or photos of rail yards or trains, your layout, your benchwork, or even a map or track-plan of your layout.
3 - Showcase your layout or module or even a great scene that you've modeled that would be listed in the "Showcase" section of this site. All you need is to send 1 or 2 photos along with 1 or 2 paragraphs telling us about your layout or scene. All of us modelers would really enjoy seeing what you've accomplished.
