Troels, I love the cantilevered benchwork! I used the same technique below my layout. Bravo!

Those angled supports were also the first thing I noticed about the benchwork. I try to encourage everyone to do that and avoid the 'stub your toe' conundrum on posts and legs.

Just fine work all around Troels but most of all terrific modeling.

thanks for the photos. i second, third and fourth what every one is saying. it's amazing the progress you've made in 3 years. this is one of the most spectacular layouts i've ever had the pleasure of seeing. i'd love to see it in person some day.
and i suspect model railroader magazine would love to as well. (check your email)

Was it only a year since I visited?
It seems impossible that so much progress has been made in just over one year.

Really looking forward to see the layout in person again!

Words really don't describe your work Troels, you are a true artist!

Troels, Great to see vol.6 up and running. I want you to know that I consider your model
railroad to be more than a model railroad, it is a work of art with a train running through it.

It has been an amazing trip so far and hopefully it is not over by far. I jumped along this thread a couple of volumes ago and had enjoyable reading all along. When I was sick this winter i killed time reading all the previous volumes and it kept me busy for quite a while! Troels artistic eye and the speed of getting things done along most impressive results has been stunning, but so is to read the friendship and comradeship from all the posters. Once in a while this thing called Internet shows its very best!

Finally time for a status report... I have plastered the rest of the road, installed the theater, a fence along the theater's side exits, painted some background forest, installed and painted black fascia, and modified a small truck into a pick-up of sorts... Now ready for some greenery and I've got to make/get some trees.

Great to see that the scenery now goes all the way round! I noticed the great looking pine trees on the background behind the theatre and I wonder how you painted those?
I hope I'm not out of line with this question? I have tried to paint some pine trees on my layout background and I'm not entirely happy with them.

Wow, looking nice, Troels! The scene looks much deeper than I suspect it is.

What's the scenic equivalent of the Golden Spike for tracklaying? The Silver Tree?
