Well the Murphy Branch has two tunnels and I already have two on the layout so I'm leaing towards the trees as well. Of course it could also be a tree lined cut going into a tunnel!

Some more progress. The building and tree are just there for a sense of scale, I'm not sure if I'm going to put any buildings on this section.

Are the riverbanks going to be rock or sand/clay bluffs?

That's an impressive looking bridge, Mike. Building a scene around it will be fun to watch.

If it were mine I think I would do another farm there on the left side where the house is.It just looks like farm country to me.

Thanks guys. The river banks will be rock on the outside of the curve and clay/soil on the inside of the curve. I'm not sure if I want a farm there or just open countryside with maybe some deer grazing in a field. George I hope so.

I got a little more done. The backdrop boards are in place so I can isolate the east end staging and fiddle yard. Also stuck a backdrop on part of the board just to get feel for how things are looking.

I drove up that valley in 1979 or so; didn't have any time for railfan detours, but I get the feel.

The backdrop, even if temporary, sure does make a difference.

The hill with some scenery done, starting to like the idea of a house being there.
