It's always nice to see some new photos of your work whether there are lots of new things to show or not. I missed the photos of your new truck so that is new to me, and I really like it. Hard to believe it started out as such a toy-like model.

Time for an update. I've made some fair to middlin' progress... and worked myself into a corner.















It's still a work in progress.

Very nice! Watching your progress is one of my modeling motivators right now. I love how your layout has grown and how you have taken it in stages. Please keep up the posting!

Nice backwoods scene. Very effective. Great look with the narrow gauge track curving through trees and rocks.

Great scene, it looks so natural. I was wondering what you use for dirt and ballast. The tone and consistency is perfect. I am trying to find something that will provide me with this type of look. If you don't mind me asking, what do you use and where does it come from?

The dirt is dirt I dug up from my backyard. Some of it's red clay and some white clay. I just dig it up and let it dry out, I don't bake it. After it's dry I sift it to get the large clumps out.

The ballast is Woodland Scenics Gray blend. Either medium (HO) or coarse (O).

Thanks for asking!
