Just found this video should be of some interest to Larry, I will check on the figures this week.

We have a show this weekend I will look out for anything WW1 for you.

Everyone who loves history should watch what equipment looked like 100 years ago.

I have a two holt tractors (the one towed by two steam tractors and pushed by one) on the way. If I find any proper steam tractors I'm putting old sound decoders and speakers under them on the layout for effect. Thanks for helping me find stuff.

Don't know why you dreaded it.
They turned out very good.

Those horses and mules look very nice. I didn't realize at first that you even made sure the one saddled horse had the correct type of saddle. Your attention to detail and accuracy makes this entire layout both amazing as a model railroad and instructive as a diorama of a history that is too quickly being forgotten.

Lars, I have just seen some clips of WW1 film that has been restored by Sir Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings fame) and what he has done will blow your mind. The original film was shot in black and white and also silent with no sound. He has smoothed the film out, added sound and colour, it is that colour that is startling. If you want to know what the colour of the battlefield was this film will show you.

It is first being screened this coming Tuesday over here in the UK so I would think should start being shown on sites like U-Tube soon after.

Thanks to all for the nice comments.

John, I saw the trailer for the movie "They shall not grow old" and I really hope I can get a copy soon.

Having a place in NC and SC has meant I have been dodging Hurricanes and Tropical storms for the last few weeks. Luckily neither places had serious damage but it slowed my RR progress considerably.

I did get busy last night and today adding scenery, poring coats of water and working on details.

I can share pictures of the water at this point in time.

This is the Picture I am working from.

I also received an exciting email from Neil that there were much needed troops ready to head my way.

The pressure is rally on now, I have 22 days to finish the first 11 feet of the RR as per my plan. I will be painting hundreds of details tomorrow to add to the 4 foot Artillery section. Also adding scenery the corner module.

Cheers all!

Larry, It's coming together nicely. Your water looks good. A little detritus and pond scum would not be a bad thing.

Love this thread.

I saw this image today and thought of your Corps. Perhaps it has already been posted, but I did't see it, so...

Have fun,

Thanks so much Neil!

The Model T was an interesting machine. Notice the steering wheel. The car could transform to run on the road or rails. They did not have much tractions so often you will find pictures of them being pushed while on the rails. At some point in time I will try to recreate one as a static model. Here is some more information on them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFhSNI0Cx4o
Glad you like the tread.
