I decided to add the lettering (decal) to the other side of the Aladdin company building. The paint and decal varnish will be dry tomorrow. When I add the roof ventilators, stairway and a block above the 2nd story door, this will be done.

Dave,
Going back to your track plan I didn't expect to see this much activity at this location. Interesting to see how your developing this. Enjoying your progress.

OK, I'm calling this one done.




Last details included the decals on the 'back' side and the white line on top of the company name on the front side, along with gluing the chimney in place.

It means I'm tired of adding details to it :-). It does need scenery/ground cover, but that will wait until I'm ready to do the surrounding area. I thought about lighting, if I decide to light this one up I can pry off the roof to get to the 2nd floor, and do the ground floor from underneath.

Architecturally, this is a very 'modern' building for 1898 (the baseline date for the layout), so no need to do a lot of weathering.

I started a new structure, one that straddles the corner where the HOn30 line passes. The challenge here is to keep the structure at that corner as thin as possible, to maintain clearance.

I'm using the Nehrich "scribe and snap" technique, with lots of bracing (most of it on the back, but some facade reinforcement too). The last bulk (.040) styrene I got was black, which makes it a bit harder to see how this is carved.


Anyway, this will be a plain brick warehouse.

Well, I can run a standard gauge loco around the loop, OR I can run a narrow gauge loco up the hill, but I can't do both concurrently because (a) I don't have 2 power packs and (b) I don't have the crossing wired to the 4PDT switch (let alone the little animation I want to do there.)

And I'm apprehensive running without any scenery, as I don't want the loco to take a dive down to the floor :-(

Good progress, Dave. I could loan you a DC power pack. And yes, gaping chasms next to my track were a major motivator in getting my landforms complete. Though mostly it was a friend who didn't want to run his equipment on my layout till I finished. My own equipment did plenty of laps...
