Last Sun I was looking for a one evening project just for something to do. Well five evenings later here it is. I had a Bachmann steam donkey that I knew would not stay that way. Just some wood pieces and a few details. I am not sure about the pump so I did not glue it on yet, looking for opinions.



The second photo is the next square foot to be completed on the layout. The stone retatning wall is individual stones and the sticks come out of the backyard after a wind storm.

Roland,
I have a lot (100+) photos of Camp 18 in Oregon, filled with steam donkeys and logging hardware. If you need prototype and coloring images.

Roland, that is a big improvement on the stock steam donkey.

The donkey looks great. I'm afraid I can't help about the pump location...
And a nice place to complete. I love the reddish colour of the ground.

Thanks guys. I think the red dirt is a result of the camera. It looks more brown on the layout. Mrs Hopeless told me this as I am quite color blind.

Hi. I was playing around with a bilding from an old layout.It originally had a second building attached to it, but it was in sad shape. I liked the guy working on the roof so when the second building went I had to add some scaffolding so he didn't fall off. A few details were added and now it is ready to put on the layout.
