Having my space cleared for the next few miles down the "Columbia Pacific Railroad" line,
construction begins again,
this section of diorama will have a tunnel exit,
a cattle transfer station,
3 river/creek bridge crossings,
a square water tower,
and of course,
lots of forest, trees and brush.

I'll post my progess for those who'd like to follow my progress on this winter's build.

I'm calling this section of the "Columbia Pacific Railroad",
the "Spring Creek" area,

Hey Randy, it looks like it's getting really rocky up there. You really have some great frocks to use.

Randy, the speed at which you build layouts and the quality of your modeling remind me of the work that Shamus did.
Good looking Frocks.

That does look nice Randy. I must give Marios frocks a go sometime. I like your colouration of them.

Thanks a bunch guys,
"frocks frocks everywhere"!!!
they do stand out like a sore thumb at this point,
today I'll start painting them with a new coat of dilutted drywall mud,
( joint compound mixed down to pancake mix consistancy )

then I can repaint them with Acrylic Washes

thanks again friends for your comments!

Randy
