I'm back! This is a short video (really, it's somewhat pathetic as the intro is almost as long as the content. I hope you like the intro anyway) that sort of announces my return to Quinntopia.

I've been distracted. You see, I found this pinball machine for sale back in March.  I've always wanted a pinball machine. I got it cheap (about the price of Trix locomotive with a sound decoder) but it doesn't work. So for the past 9 months I've been restoring it and trying to understand how to make it work. It's almost done, but I missed my trains.

So there you go. Only time will tell to see if this is another famous Quinntopia false starts?



Here's a short video of the progress I've made on the layout so far...about 15 months into it! But I think I'm willing to publish a video as it seems like the next step is to start adding track!



A few images of the current status of the city.  I still have a few more LED-lit cars to add, and need to straighten some light poles (Wow! Its amazing how the camera can reveal the slightest angle) and lot's of details!

Above is the street that will parallel the passenger station tracks (it has a name! Its called the "Avenue of the Liberation of Quinntopia"! See my map here)...below is the area in front of the Metro Station...
 Another shot of the area that will eventually be next to the main passenger terminal.
The below photo should provide a pretty good idea of the layout.  Right now the City is sort of an island surrounded by wood, which will eventually be the tracks.
I still need to add more detail, but I'm pleased with how the Metro Station turned out. I still need to add a decoder to the second Tokyo Subway train so that trains will operate automatically in both directions/
An overhead view of "Minitrix Avenue" on the back side of the Metro Station and the recently completed "Gorham Building".
And finally, a street level view under the Metro Viaduct on "Kato Avenue"...
