OK, Here are some photos of where I am at with my layout. At this point most of the layout is pink styrofoam with track pinned to it. Only one small section is complete. I dont have scaning so I don't know how to add a trackplan. Photos in next post

Saw fillers shack and bunkhouses

Beautiful work. What is the layout size (footprint)?

Great start to what looks to be a nicely presented layout...big Red Stag influence?
I'd be interested in the plan too when you can work out how to show it. I've quietly watched some of your other modelling on the other threads, and have good confidence that this will be a layout filled with some nice modelling. I assume there will be a home for the "Pettit's engine shed" on this one.

Another new layout to look forward to the progress of...

Roland that is sure some very impressive modeling.

While I don't spend a lot of time in the On30 forum since I model in HO and am afraid I might be tempted to switch, I do enjoy looking at the layout threads and seeing what others are doing.

For the trackplan if you have it drawn up on paper then I have used the digital camera and taken a picture of the paper and then posted that on the forum.

Very very nice, Roland! I really enjoy the scene you have done so far, and look forward to more, including wide shots of the layout and what you are working on now or have built so far. I think your trees are far superior to mine and hope that you will share your techniques!

That's how your pink styrofoam look?? man I have to buy me something like that!

Wonderful work Roland, I already got some ideas for my own layout. Looking forward to more pictures and if possible your track plan.

I like it.

You could bring your trackplan to walmart or target and scan it at the photo printing machine and scan it into a jpg.
