Mike, looks great. Good job on achieving nice detail in a narrow space. The photo backdrops certainly help to give it depth.
Who makes the backdrops you've used ?

Thanks guys! Rob the backdrops are from:

www.realisticbackgrounds.com


Warning! The ones that have buildings on them are more suitable for HO to O scale.

The final section of my layout is Murphy N.C. and will be built on a 10" by 7' shelf in the hallway. The real yard was somewhat S shaped and crossed two rivers, not really doable on a 10" shelf . However the part of the yard that makes one end of the S and crosses one of the rivers was L&N trackage so no need to model that part. I will try to make a reasonable representation of the Murphy depot. This is the only picture I have of the depot and was taken from the book "Southern Railway's Murphy Branch". The book was written by Michael George and published by College Press sometime in the mid 1990's as near as I can remember. It is on page 79 and was taken by Ken Marsh in Oct. 1967.






I will be using the following two Walther's kits as a starting point:






First on the list is making this rather distinctive chimney:





This was made from a chimney from the junk box and a piece of tubing drilled out to make it thinner:






Next up will be to splice the buildings together
and making a loading dock.

Mike;
Your are getting close to having another RR-Line distinction of having a one hundred page topic. Looks like a good start to another stand out N Scale structure. I have been laid off from my part time job for medical reasons so I have had a bit more time an energy to keep up with what you and a couple others are up to on the RR-Line family.

I'm really liking it Mike. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with those 2 kits combined together.
Do you have a track plan of the new section to show us ?

A lot of 1:1 stuff has slowed me down on this but some progress has been made. The first pic is of the two main bodies of the kits grafted together:




The loading dock is stripwood applied over a block of balsa wood. There are 54 upright pieces 1/8" by 1/4" and 38 pieces on the deck 1/8" by 1/2" and/or 3/4". The ladder is from the junk box and the overall size is 5/8" by 4".
