Mike, really enjoying all the new work you're doing on the layout. Very natural looking colours.

Regarding the 500 more trees, if you have a few hundred extras left over, can you send them to me.
I will need at least double that.

Could you include tutorial when your doing some, as I'm interested in your tree making technique.

Hi Rob, thanks for the kind words. I have several ways of doing trees so they don't all look the same as the eastern forest has quite a few different species. I'll try to post a something soon.

Mike, Thanks for the e-Mail about the tree making. Will be a big help when I get back to making some soon.
Yes, I'm about to reopen my thread of my layout after a long layoff.

For those that are interested in Mikes trees making technique, go to pages 33 52 & 57 of this thread.


Regards Rob

Well I decided to take a break from tree making and start labeling the various landmarks the railroad would have noted and put mile post distances on.



The Nantahala Midland doesn't leave the state of NC but it does go thru 3 counties so I marked those as well. Hopefully this will give everybody a better sense of where things are going to and coming from.
