Beautiful build on the sanding facility. Nice to include the sand drying stove.

In the Background there a baggage car. It looks to me like a Westwood Central Pacific Car, but, did you lengthen it?


It's only make-believe

Thanks Bob! The baggage car is a Westwood kit built with the original length. I have not lengthened it. I have substituted all the wood for styrene though.

Håkan, I have been very busy these last days, but I wanted to tell you how great I find your landscape in the previous page. This is the kind of place I'd like to visit if I were a LP...

Håkan, those trees are fantastic and I'm impressed with the structures in your engine terminal. You have a great looking layout.

Thanks Frederic, George, Mike and Martin!

LP? Little Person?

Nice blog Martin! I have watched the surgery on your thread although I liked the scene with the small outhouse the new scene looks great.

I sure would Frederic. I love those big trees. A dream I have and hope to realize before going to the grave is to make a trip to the Redwood country in Northern California. My brother has seen them going on a San Fransisco work trip and his comment was:
“…the redwood trees are big but the other pines and spruce trees aren’t exactly small either”

Juuuuust beautiful Håkan!!!
Not only your trees!
a very very small tiny remark: ...your groundcover it is a little bit to clean ??
Looks very familiar to me as I have the same "clean up"attidu when modelling landscape. May be it is a kind of West European"thing"? ;-)
When visiting this site , always "click" first overhere if anything new!

Thanks Jos! I'm happy you like it. Thank you for visiting.

I know what you mean with ground cover, its way to orderly and uniform. I have a lot of work on that still to do.

Thanks,
Håkan

Hi All,
Today I did some experimenting with taking some videos on the layout with a freight train as the cast. I have put it out on Youtube with the following link.

I hope you all will enjoy it. It was quite fun to do but took a awful lot of time uploading.

Thanks,
Håkan

Now that's my kind of Video! Most excellent.
It's the first to be down loaded to my new phone.

Thanks Bob,
I'm glad you liked it! The music is there to cover up the gearbox noice and the dynamo and I hope it is not to overpowering. I have not been able to shut the dynamo off as my DCC controller can't program more then to 255 and the dynamo is on 300 something. ESU has planned it for me that I must buy their expensive programmer.

Seems the link I put out before was for cells. Here is a link to the ordinary Youtube:
