That is an excellent gully and bridge', Fred'.
The best part this really demonstrates the art of planning out a build'..before starting a build'..
Very nice layout indeed'...

Thanks Jerry and Ted !

After the gully and bridge were in place I added 12" to the north end of the layout and 5" to the south end. The car shop was moved from the southwest corner to the southeast corner and tracks off of the mainline were added. The loop around the outside was completed.



So now we've gone through the past 8 years, in the wink of an eye, and we're pretty much into real-time. Which means the frequency of my updates will slowdown considerably.

Terrell, it's going to be interesting to watch what you do next now that you have closed the loop.

Aw, man! Dang real-time slows everybody down.

It's been fun to see how all the bits and pieces have morphed into a whole. Beautiful work ... inspiring journey .... (especially like the power house with the power supply)


Cheers,

Well Fred, I will be patiently waiting for the next installment. I just hope it is not going to be another 8 years before it happens...I don't have that much patience'...

I don't have that much patience either. I'm already working on thinking about working on the next project.

Well, after an unplanned, unexpected vacation day off from work yesterday I decided to start work on the new Oak Grove Station.

The humble beginnings.....

Still chugging along. The front wall and both end walls are boarded up.

Fred,

Your detail placement tells me you have an imagination with an eye to how a space would be inhabited by actual people. There's just something about the composition of each scene that looks as if it has truly been lived in, and some little person really set down those items or arranged them.

The other thing that catches my interest is the consistent wood color and texture/size throughout. The buildings all have a family appearance.

Simply superb modeling.

Terrell,

Neat look to that depot. I like the proportions and materials you are using, particularly the shingled ends.

Mike
