Coming soon at Captain Richards...pics added

Greetings everyone
  Since my last post Ive taken down the slot car track twice and rebuilt it, not satisfied with it on a 14 foot table in the back room, I moved it to the 25 foot table . The Civil War battlefield is no longer.What will be there is a slot car rally track going thru a ghost town. The larger buildings will be closer to the track and the smaller ones farther back so that scale won't be noticeable. So what I will have is a racetrack sitting on the hallowed grounds of a Civil War battlefield that is now a ghost town. Everything that was made for the battlefield is available for use on this new project. Well I got my first ghost...he fits right in with the race track. We all know who he is...don't we?
