People with medical issues and older folks sometimes have to go the way of prebuilt nothing wrong with that also some of us just don't have talent others have .

Been trying to upload these pictures for a couple of weeks...finally remembered to shrink the pictures. First three are of road work in what will be the main town area.









Finally a picture of my return to kit building.
Blair Line's Greene's Feed & Seed kit. Not real difficult but still gives the satisfaction of building a kit. One good thing about having old eyes is not being able to see all the small imperfections.




I have it partially completed so maybe I'll post some more pictures shortly now that I have solved my uploading issues.

Here are two pics of my progress so far.










As always, all comments and suggestions welcome.

Couple of pictures of my Greens Feed & Seed structure. In the first picture you'll see a father holding his son in his lap waiting for a box car to be spotted at the siding. His kid is really into trains. In the second picture you can see the mom chewing out the manager for letting he husband so close to the tracks with her boy.








Once the structure is 'planted' on the layout I will post some more pictures.

As always all comments and suggestions are welcome.

It's been awhile since I posted anything. Combination of summer and what seems to be a lack of activity on the forum. Anyway, I have created a scene on the layout which includes a couple of new structures - Blair Line Feeds and a Woodland Scenics pre-built Gazebo - and I moved the Campbell Supply building from the other side of the layout.

Gazebo first. As you can hopefully see it's a pretty active location with some folks dancing to a Jug Band, others just enjoying the music and a family getting some dogs from the hot dog cart.







Next some pictures of the Blair Line Feed and Campbell Supply structures. The B&A loco is waiting for the car to get unloaded while the C&NW loco waits on the outer track to spot it's cars. As you can imagine the sounds of the two diesels sometimes interferes with the music.





Finally a couple of shots from the street side of the two structures and an overview of the scene.














Hope you enjoy. As always, all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Got some new pictures for you.














There's more I could share but until I see more
interest I see no point. I know my modeling skills don't measure up with what appear to be the standards of this forum. Unfortunately, a lack of encouragement for those who don't measure up will eventually be the death of this forum. Just remember we can not all be master craftsmen.

You're making good progress on lighting your layout. Were the trailers purchased with lights, or did you install them?

Dave, when resizing photos, 800 pixel width seems to work well for this forum. Many use an online site, Websizer"

Looks like you come a long way from the first photos. Good work!

Congratulations from one of the many others here named,

Dave

Pre-lit from Woodland Scenics. A cool feature of the trailer on the left, which no photo will show, is inside the trailer is a TV with a flickering screen so it likes as though the set is on.

That one looks good. Good depth of field, too.

I must have stumbled onto a smart camera because of outside resizing the pictures they are as taken. Proves once again, at least in my case, it's best not to over think things.

Here's another one -




Thanks for your input,

Dave

Here's a couple more.







I really like the second one with the canoeists heading toward the small boat landing.
