Looks great, did you go on a run?

Didn't had the time. And for a good picture it is better to stay outside :-)

I agree Marcel, it does look great Marcel. I would suspect that the railroad ballast is vulnerable to slippage in winter. Now which Marcel was I addressing then? Doesn't matter, did you get a shot of its approach?

Ah, I see you did with No.18999.
