Dave,

This is looking fabulous! Excellent jobs with the backdrop, mill pond, "water features" and so on! Drive on!

It was an amazing day on the SL&N. James Van Bokkelen came over, showed me how to use the voltmeter to inspect/debug track. Then, once he found where I put that RS-1 I got as a test loco, and cleaned A LOT of track, we ran the loco over 60% of the main line! I have LOTS of work to do, including hooking up the small yard trackage to the power bus, finding a short in one section of track, fixing lots and lots of misalignment and track glitches. But this was extremely helpful, as in 50 years as a model railroader, I can count the number of times I actually moved a locomotive on my track on the fingers of one hand!

We also looked at those little LEDs that I got that are pre-wired with a resistor, figuring out likely voltage and current draw. Again, more education on how to use the voltmeter (and how to think about the problem...)

I got a stone arch from Russ Greene at Springfield, to cut into the wall as the outflow for the stone mill. I still have to color the arch to match, fill in and fill behind the hole, but I think it looks pretty good.

The outlet adds to the realism of the scene. First rate job.

The hole looks like nothing but the arch is sharp.

Credit goes to Russ Greene, both the arch and the stone wall behind it are NE Brownstone products.

I really like the look of the mill and the new arch. That is really nice.

In addition to some track work, I worked on the mill race outlet.

I have to correct the color on the arch and touch up paint inside the tunnel, but overall this came out very nice.

Dave,

"Correct" the exterior, visible part, maybe, but I'd consider leaving the tunnel interior alone... it looks great, and used....

YMMV.
