Wonderful model. It looks appropriately like it was made from bits and pieces lying around a backwoods railroad.

It has been a while but I have been doing something. I needed to finish the back ground before I could finish the small town. I had to stand on a chair to reach the back section and would have most likely crushed most of the buildings in front. The section is 12 feet long and is shown left to right in the 3 photos.







There are 118 pine trees in this section.

I should have said there are 118 trees in the 12 feet section.

Roland, The trees look fantastic and your scenes are fitting nicely into the new layout space. Looking forward to more progress pictures.

Thank you all for the positive comments. The trees are just Balsa and caspia and range from 6 to 24 inches tall. The only thing now is I have to find a track cleaning car as I cannot get my hand in many spots without breaking them.

Good to see you back at it, Roland ! That fine line between creating reality and functionality is often a bear.

Roland I have a big hand that also breaks details while cleaning track. I recently read about Graphite sticks. (Yes I may be behind the times!!!). So what the heck? I purchased a couple and gave my track a good clean the old way. Then applied some Graphite. It's been a month since and no need for any more track cleaning the old way.

It has been a long time since I have even looked at the layout. Got interested a little while ago and built this fire car from Foothill Model Works that has been sitting on a shelf for about 10 years. The model is built straight out of the box except I cannot paint anything to look like wood so I set those parts aside and used real wood instead. The only problem I had was there was no fire hose material in the box so I found some coated wire. Someone said they have gone out of business.
