Phil, it's currently in the middle of the ever popular, sjconrail-inspired planning/revision/planning/re-revision/planning/re-re-revision/planning/re-re-re-revision/tearing out/planning/re-vision/planning/re-revision cycle....I think it has at least three more cycles to go......

I think it's about time the B&M team of layout builders comes on site and makes things happen!

Thanks for all the comments, guys...

Ken, the paper stuff has worked well, but I've also cleverly cropped out a couple of unsightly bubbles which have appeared in the HP&T siding. Fixing them won't be a big deal, but in the future I might go to carpet tape as an adhesive instead of a glue stick. The UHU glue stick I used has been pretty good, so would have to assume the bubbles are where I either failed to apply enough or any at all.

Rick, that scene really came together. I can't wait to see those Alcos pulling the ore train thru that scene in person.

Well after a few years of looking at pictures and emailing back and forth I got to see the HTRR in person last evening. Looks better in person than in pictures. Two rr friends and I got to visit , see trains run, see real world paper siding, grout and other interesting things Rick has come up with. I came away with some siding samples , a glue sample !! and plenty of ideas for the Lehigh Steel plant on my Buffalo line. Rick thanks for being a great host and teacher !! ---- Ken
