I decided to open a separate topic for scenery and construction. I hope you enjoy.
Well I got around to trying this goop mixture that I have heard some of you talk about. I have to say my first time of working with it was quite fun. I can see playing with the amounts might be needed as I followed the mag. article to the letter and for my taste it has to much vermiculite in it. I might use half the amount on the next batch.
The first 3 photo's is where I started at this morning after painting the white hardshell. I used to not do this, but have found its one of the best things to prevent those little white specs from showing later and it helps seal the plaster. Otherwise it will absorb the moisture from whatever you use for gluing scenery material down.
I used some different scenic materials today, and I like the result. A product from Scenic express called Silfor. It makes nice looking grass and pretty easy to install compared to using the WS grass.
You can see the silfor in the next 2 pictures. Look for tufffs of medium green grass with some of the tops painted, like dandelions. Its very effective, and I will be ordering more of this soon.
Suprising enough, I worked for about 6 hours to get this much done. I spend more time in areas I feel will get photgraphed more often. Once I get away from the bridge it will go faster. Plus working under a bridge when your fingers hardly fit can be challenging.

I agree with everyone else on the amazing quality of Tim's layout.
I sent him an email and PM asking him to stop in and give a progress report.

Yeah it would be great to see him posting here again.

Ok so he ended up finishing it then?
Really sad he stopped updating this thread s he has been such an inspiration to me and I am sure many many others.

I saw Tim's layout when he opened it for the 2016 NMRA convention in Indianapolis. It was beautiful.

I have just spent hours going from page 1 to 101 and am absolutely speechless.
I was wondering if anyone knew if Tim ever continued on this railroad?
The last post is from 2013.

Sorry to hear of the water damage. Hopefully the Overland Green River Basin will come back strong at some point down the road.

Tim, it's great to hear from you. The railroad you guys are building looks great. I like the 'scenery before trackwork' approach you are taking. I assume it's working out well?
I do hope you get the fires to get back to your layout Tim as it's beautiful. I can understand how so many problems would take the wind out of your sails.

Merry Chrismas Tim. Have a happy and safe holiday

I hope so Tim, your layout is one of my favorites!

My Railroad is shut down at the moment. Since the water damage, I have decided to take a break from working on it. At the time before the water damage we were having some electrical issues as well. So I guess it all just took the winds out of my sails.
I still really enjoy the hobby and working on the Park project just might get me going again.
Merry Christmas everyone!

How's the OGR R.R. doing Tim?
||Posted - 12/23/2013 : 5:36:21 PM
Hi guys, yes there is something to report. The following link will show you some MRR. Our group has went together to build a layout for a local park. The park built a new train station and this is what goes inside. Stay tuned as there will be many more pictures.
Feels good to be modeling once again.

Yes Tim, anything to report?
||Posted - 12/08/2013 : 08:59:25 AM
How goes it on the Overland Green River Basin RR? Shall we start Vol. 2?

Tim, good to hear from you again. I am looking forward to when you resume your work on the layout.
