Thanks Andre, I feel humbled by the kind words.

I forgot to mention. The light look of the timber color is because I'm trying to simulate newly lain wood. The mine has not been in operation for more than one year.
I'll also add nail holes and some more weathering using chalks to the wood and give it a light rubbing with steel wool. Last I'll give it a light dry brushing.

Thanks Bob and Carl!
Laying the deck is tedious work though. Today the parts for my jib crane arrived from the US.

Håkan,

Your mine gets more interesting with every step. I can imagine cutting deck boards to conform to the curve in the track was a nuisance. Well done.

Mike

Thanks Mike!
The deck boards are a nuisance. Especially working at the layout and not at the
I have studying photos of mine decking together with mine rails.
