Installed lights in some of the buildings today.


The General store.



The Pool hall.


The Bordello.



It is great with LED lights.

I installed lights in more of the buildings and connected them on the layout.
















Now I'll have to see what else needs lights.

I installed the new lights over my layout today.
I use 6 W LED bulbs with 2 feet gaps in between them.

















It's a LOT brighter now!

Tested the new turnout control. I'm really satisfied.

I made some utility poles today.
It's an Auhagen kit.



I installed them temporary on the layout.




I will add E-Z line later.

I made a retaining wall out of Depron foam that I scribed with a pencil before painting it with gesso and some paint.


I glued it in place with hot glue.


I surrounded it with my homemade Sculptamold.

I made a bridge for the road to the tunnel.
3D printed sides and cardboard/wood subframe.
I've just graveled the road, so the bridge is a little wet ...





Sylvan car I also built recently.

You've been really busy of late, Michael. I've enjoyed the layout photos. The lighting in the buildings looks neat - especially in those night shots.

Nice job on the foam rock work.

Thanks!
Had some time to spare today.
I've painted part of the fascia, it looks so much better in black.
Then I found an oil pump on Thingiverse that I printed on my resin printer last night. I'll see if it can be motorized.
Done a bit more rockwork as well. I use ordinary plaster in aluminum foil.






There's a lot more to do on the layout.

A "grasshopper" pump! Hope you can automate it, it'll be cool to see that slowly doing its thing. Don't forget a local tank to store the oil.

Painted the new rockwork today.
WS pigments.
I have now soaked the surface with diluted Modpodge so I can add the black/raw umber wash.
