Mike, all those trees really add a lot to that scene. Well done!

As you think, so will you be.

Tyson,
I see I missed a post but have now watched the entire corner of the layout get scenery.
Very well done and from the overhead shot I really like how the corner turned out.

The "hill" is an excellent scene, Tyson! I really like it!

Tyson, I like the effect! I like the idea of having to look through the trees to see the scene - it adds to the realism.

Thanks Joe. The main reason for the "forest" is to create ( I hope ) a bigger sense of distance between the town up on the hill and the junction down in the valley, therefore better jusifying the need for the R.R.

Tyson,

Just caught up with this thread, you have a great looking layout there. As others have already said earlier that forest really make a difference. Thats a great scene you have there.

Jeez, 2 months and no new progress! Now that things have calmed down at work I hope to get some more done on the layout before making my annual pilgramage to the land of Mickey. Working on the secondary road into the junction right now, hope to have some pics this weekend.

Well another 2 months have passed , but at least I have a little progress to report . Got to have at least one gas station on the layout (being as I used to own one and have worked in many more over the years). This is still in the raw stage, no paint on the plaster or ground covers. Been working on getting it set in place and wiring the lighting. I know it's not much after 4 months but at least I got started again !



BTW this is a brass model which prevents the white walls from "glowing" to matter how bright the light.

Nice to see you back at it again.

Mike, any progress is good progress. Looks good to me. I need to start adding lights to my models. I like the look.

As you think, so will you be.

That is a nice little station, Mike, and the lighting looks good.

I've never built a brass model, althoug I have a little ecthed brass structure on the shelf.
