A little more progress starting with the hole in the wall that will lead to phase 4:
The little specks in the last pic are dairy cows. In real life the Southern goes past (back then) a dairy farm and that field needs to be that or corn or tobacco to be what is seen around here circa 1960's.

Nope no dairy rail service that I know of Jon. Even if there was I'm not going to put in any more industry sidings big or small as this layout is supposed to depict a small branch line and a even smaller short line.
To be honest I don't know of any RR's that had those kind of milk pick-ups/set-outs in the southeast and I try to avoid modeling the things that never were or were very unusual as it can turn the RR into the "it goes anywhere and does anything for a buck" RR. That being said if someone likes that kind of a model RR that's fine for them but not for what I'm trying to do Jon.
