Thanks Dallas, the main building is 4x10 not counting the side rail dock and about 7-1/2 tall at the peak. The smaller building is about 5x8. Have to keep things skinny towards the back of the layout.

Photo update 4-23-13

I have the latest structures on the module and started cutting it in with scenery. Still working clockwise. Some details are not added while I work on the scene (switch stands and some ground items). I hope to finish up this backdrop scene and move towards the front of the module soon.

That looks great! Really like the "tight scene" in the second photo ... AND ... the incredible depth of the scene in the third photo. Also, the overall finishes, peeling paint and such on the structure look really good ...

Cheers,

The third picture is probably my favorite too, but you have a great sense for shooting your models, and all the photos are very good and full of interest.

are you using natural soil or grout for the ground cover and roads?

The structure has a great look even though it is narrow.

Thanks folks -

Jeff, yes various colors of sifted yard dirt for ground cover and a mix of that with concrete dust for the roads and some areas of ballast.

Great looking scene Joey. The wide tie spacing on the siding is a neat detail that I don't see very often.

Hello again folks -

This week I have been working on a structure and at first I had no idea what I was going to do until I just started building it to fit. It's a small spur between the logging branch and main line with very little space to work with. I thought long and hard about what I could fit in the space that would be a real business in the area I am modeling and I came up with Apples! I don't see how I didn't think of it sooner.

The working theme is that the apples are brought in during the day by truck from the nearby orchard and sorted into shipping crates during the night shift. The crates are then shipped by rail when the local comes through. Yes, that is how it is done on this layout.

The structure is not done as I have to add a few important details, but here is it sitting where it will end up. Have a great weekend!

Joey, You keep putting buildings in the back that I would be glad to put in the front. Your layout looks wonderful.

Very nice. I like the way the trees around the buildings have added depth to your scene. I wish I could get my static grass to stand up as well as yours does.
