Rob, thanks for the additional pictures.
Really enjoying seeing them.
Thanks too for the larger ones.
Makes it easier for my aging eyes to see all the impressive details.

These pics are of the engine house area.
The first three are the old engine house taken last year, which has been replaced by a new one.

The small shed to the right of the tank is now at the front of the new engine house. The Blacksmiths now occupies this spot.






new facilities






The hose on the right was made with insulation from electrical wire. Note the screw fitting on the end of it.

Here's a few more to go on with. These are all on the right side of the layout. I really like the colour of everything. It all looks so natural.

Really enjoying these pictures.
I like how most of the structures are just simple. The thing that makes them interesting is the charactor in the material used to make them.

Thanks for looking in Frederic, Larry & Adrian.
For his buildings Richard uses basswood, but most of the other heavy timber is made using balsa, with appropriate distressing.
These next ones are on the left side of the layout.
The first two are the layouts namesake.




These ones are on a small addition Richard put on, to add some more switching.
The first shot of this house is from last year, but the next couple shows a recent change to the stairs, and a stone foundation has been added.

I saw Richard's layout at the NMRA convention last year and I was talking to him at the last NMRA meet at the Ballarat show. It is such a great layout and I was looking forward to seeing what changes he had made.

Thanks for posting

I had already noticed this splendid mine shaft in the article in NGDU. What a beauty!
