Sorry it has been a while since I posted. Had several pictures taken, just only now downloaded them to the computer. I did get a light box to show the pictures better, so no distractions from what's on my bench. I always hated that. I have added a fence, a platform for the tank (notice the nails sticking out where some boards came loose) and am working on a tree for the corner, no foliage at this time. A wild bush is from Martin Welberg's collection, and some signs added to the shed. So, enjoy...

The whole scene is really sharp. I love the oil/fuel dock with the weeds between the boards. Why is the shed cleaned out? Is management getting ready to replace it? (tongue is in cheek) I really enjoying your build.

Beautiful work, Tony. The nails are a great touch. Everything is falling together so well, or maybe falling apart.

Nice job. The coloring on the wood is fantastic and the nails are a special surprise. The tank with the rust/oil mixture is spot on. The ballast looks a bit new to be servicing this water tank.

Tony,

I always enjoy viewing your work. It's projects like this that are really a great surprise when one hasn't posted for some time. Ditto on the tank, platforms and nails, etc. Nice work.

Just fantastic, Tony. I especially like the way that you've weathered the steel tank on the platform.

That whole scene is amazing! The gaps between boards, nails sticking out where boards went missing, and a billion other little details. Love it.
Thanks for sharing.
Cheers,
Dave

Everything is excellent Tony.

Perhaps I missed it, is the very nice tank scratched?

Bryan,
thank you, and your right, the track is looking a little newer than it should be, (but to my credit, I did only just lay it recently ). But you have given me some food for thought. Thanks.

Thank you Rich, Russ, Dave and Carl.

On the nails, not sure I mentioned it, I use a .010" drill (I have sizes from .008" to .014" in .001" increments I bought from a supplier years ago who supplies our company with drills and tools) and insert a rust painted (first I use 'weather-it' for a darker look and better paint adhesion) bronze wire from Ticky train, or I could use a brass 'rod' from K&S or others. After putting the wire into the hole, I snip off level, or higher, to the platform, then just tap a spot of paint to the tip of the now 'nail' with paint to kill the shine.

And to Carl, at first I thought you meant a real scratch , started looking for one Haha, but, as to your question, no, it is a casting from the Sierra West kit. Although this is a scratchbuilt model, there are some very nice castings Brett threw into this kit, and I will be using most of them. Others I will use elsewhere, and even others of his from detail sets, etc., I will be adding, as well as some 3D printed details and some of my own, a nice mix of stuff to keep some guessing. But feel free to ask anytime.

Thank you all for your kind, and observant, comments and some suggestions. Much appreciated.

OK, Thanks to Bryan Brown, I have removed the existing track, and did a total makeover. The ties are now much more worn, and the track is handlaid. I used a finer ballast, and weathered it a little bit. I also have added the tree foliage, hope you like it.
