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.
