Thanks Dave and Jerry.

Jerry, I will be showing the layout in Sept to people who have never seen it before. I stopped working on the shop so I could cover at least some of the styrofoam with dirt. I will get back to it in Oct.

The story as I heard it is that in 1877 a not so famous trapper named Elmo Weaver and his beloved mule Cinnamon wandered into the area. Elmo, somewhat of a hermit like the emptyness and decided to stay. A few years later the mule passed away and Elmo buried him and placed a marker with his name on it. It is unknown when Elmo passed as no one ever saw him again. In 1893 a group of miners was passing through and discovered silver in the area. They saw Cinnamon's name on the barely readable marker and thought someone had already named it. They kept the name.

Welcome to Cinnamon.







A lot of brownie and cake mix boxes were sacrificed to make the mockup. The area where Geezer is standing will be dug out and be an access to basements That will be started as soon as I can find Geezer a shovel.

I am looking for any thoughts, good or bad. Nothing more will be done until I finish the machine shop.

Wow Roland that is off to a good start. Seeing I've been to the layout just where is this going to be situated?

September those will be some lucky people!

Wow, Roland! I look forward to seeing Cinnamon come to life- and will be following eagerly! I see you have one structure already complete. Would you mind if we had a closer look at it?

Thank you guys. The one thing that really concerned me is that the main road through town is only 6 feet wide, but sitting where it is you can't tell.
Jerry, The town will be on the left in the far back corner as you enter the room.



Arthur, here is a shot of the shed. It is a kit from Smoky Bottom and was built about 15 years ago for my first layout. I changed the roof, which was a cast metal roof, and added real wood shingles cut from HO 1x12. I also added the clerestory, to try and make it look larger. It was the biggest building on a very small layout.



Again, thanks for looking. Roland

Great looking town and great name too. It naturally fills that corner. That is a great looking shed. The clerestory really adds character.

Cheers, Heath.

Added some paint,chalk, and small wood chips to a set of log cars. Sending a photo just to prove I am still at it.



Still need to add some chains on 2 of them.
