That is the perfect "shadow box" effect and will really highlight your next build. Good job!!!

Kumard why don't you plan a trip to sunny Florida and give me some assistance on my backdrop options. You seem to have it under control.

Thanks all.

Cowboybilly >> nice progress want to see more , nice Sunday >> Thanks Frank. I'm actually going to switch to The Depot for the next couple of weeks to finish off things there. However today, Sunday, I'm going to take off from all modelling railroading and spend much needed time with the family. My wife made the observation that I can install a lighting system on my model railway in a week but the light switch in the bathroom upstairs has been broken for months. Message received dear!!

Grabnet >> That is the perfect "shadow box" effect and will really highlight your next build. >> Thanks Tom. I want to avoid the mistakes of The Depot and get the infrastructure done before anything else. Not having a solid wiring and control system for The Depot added nearly four months onto the end of that project. As you may have seen this year I had to redo the wiring and controller system. Also, I have to revisit the lighting on The Depot since it was kind of 'jerry-rigged' into place last year and left several dark areas that show up in photos. I learned a lot from this current project and want to apply the same lessons to The Depot.

Frank >> Kumard why don't you plan a trip to sunny Florida and give me some assistance on my backdrop options. You seem to have it under control. >> Frank I would love to visit Florida one day - I'll let you know if I ever manage to plan a trip. I'm planning a very fast trip to the the upper Midwest - my geography is a bit fuzzy but maybe I'll land in the Twin Cities and then drive through Great Plains. It would be no more than a three day day trip to get a feel for the landscape and visit some small towns.

Kumard I thought you might like this picture of a SOO loco. It's from the Weathering Shop.

Oh wow, that is fantastic. Thanks Frank. That's a whole other level of excellence and definitely something to aim for when I next do a round of weathering. This past year has mainly been hardware projects and I'm itching to get back to some real modelling. Btw I've been following your own weathering projects with great interest. Keep up the good work.

Thanks nevadablue.

I'll be posting again in a week or so when the next items are finished. I'm currently building an integrated lighting and control panel. I'm waiting for parts right now and I'm working on The Depot in the meantime.

I managed to find a space in my den to house the layout. I purchased a table (from Craigslist) on which it will sit. The layout will live here until I build the cabinet to house all the layouts together. I'm back working on The Depot this week.

Thanks brownbr.

The goal is to have them all stacked:


I want to build the cabinet sooner than later but I think it will be early next year before I can get to that project.

Looking great! Love the idea of stacking all 3 together. Do you have plans to connect them end to end at all?

That would make a great panoramic picture!

Mike /Tyson RaylesThat would make a great panoramic picture!

>> Tim, the longer term plan is that my wife and I buy a bigger house - at which point I would have a large space to have them side by side. Something like this:


However for the moment I'm stuck in a medium-sized house in the woods in Northern California (I'm not complaining, it's very nice) with very little hobby space. So for the time being I'll be stacking them and that's a project for early next year.

BTW for anyone following along, I've been quiet the last few weeks but behind the scenes I've been very busy trying to get to grips with Templot - the track designing software. I'm writing a post tomorrow evening with the results. I'm currently working on The Depot and will also be posting progress on that layout in a couple of days.
