Thanks, Daniel. We love doing these projects and hopefully something we discover here will be helpful to others. We are learning everyday ourselves!

That is true I guess Frank. There are more of you guys, I'm pretty much doing all the scenery on my own so Ford can have fun playing with all the cool electronic toys he's got for the layout :D

Well, we finally got the layout moved from the back room to it's permanent spot on the floor. We disassembled the Dolly Varden Mine layout make space. The good news it came part just as we had planned and was easy to set up in the new location. We plan to display this layout at a show or two outside our museum, so it needs to be portable.

Dave scratch built a chain link-fence and gate to go across the tracks that lead to Frank's car float. It is fully functional and I attached a pic of the prototype here as well.

Dave also put lights in his Olympia Tool and Die building.

Frank and Dave also redid the rip rap on the retaining wall along the water. It's made from sheet aluminum and corrugated with a crimping tool Some hammered grey paint, rust brown paint, and weathering powders finished it off. We are making progress before the October 20th open house.

Thanks, Ted and Jerry. We are just getting into the final scenery application at this point. What you are seeing in these pics is Jon Addison's work, and after we all left yesterday he went back to add some static grass. Here are the updated pics.

Spent some time working on the interior lights of the Westinghouse seven-story building. Here are some shots that show the front view, a close up of the interior through the windows, and the shadow boxes I built behind it to get the effect. Only certain blocks of windows were lit with the shadowboxes and collected pictures on line of warehouse and factory interiors which is copied, sized in Word, and then printed.

Frank got his car float, tug, and lift detail in place Wednesday. Like all of our scenes so far, it is still being finished off, but this is pretty stunning! I put one of the raw videos in this post as well as Dave was testing out his new electronic pan device for shooting video on an iPhone. Please ignore the irreverent comments and Frank's sea gull imitation as those will ultimately be edited out:)
