I'm trying to get back on track, so to speak. Got this much done. I'm not sure exactly what it's called but it's used to char the inside of the barrels. This is done primarily for wines, liquors, tabasco sauce and the like to help give them flavor.

Anyway, it's all primed and ready.



And if it really worked it would look something like this:

I thought I would update the whole layout. With the cooperage, at least temporarily, in place on the southeast corner (bottom left).

Thanks, Mike !!

Here's the layout legend, so we know what each building is and where it is. In case we get lost.

Terrell, So many building is a space that is 4x8. I also plan to do On30, but most of my future builds (Stoney Creek, Sierra West) are so large. I love those kits but I may re-think how many will fit. You have done a beautiful job in a space often used for HO or smaller.

Thanks very much, Guys!!

Just as a point of conversation, in the photo of the overall layout, what really bothers me is the loop on the south end. The loop itself is fine, but to me it screams "it's a layout!". I don't know what, if anything, I can do about it. But I may have to explore some possibilities.

Thanks again.

Terrell, It does say that. But I can see you making it less obvious. And it is a layout. A very good one. I will enjoy following what you do to make it more acceptable to you. Like I said before, a 4x8 in On30 with all you got going and more to come is quite an accomplishment. Others may have some good suggestions.

Hey Fred, what about a small creek with just a small log trestle just east of the center'...

Also, when you scenic that area it will camouflage that layout look'...and will blend in better....trees, trees, my friend'..

Thanks, Ed and Ted. I have thought about trees. In fact my original thought for the cooperage, before I knew it was going to be a cooperage and on the layout, was to have it surrounded by trees and undergrowth. I'm not sure now that there's enough room to do a whole lot of that, without getting too close to the tracks. And I'm beginning to think that maybe I'm over-thinking the loop being a problem. No matter what I do the track comes down the east side and down the west side and curves, pointing towards the center. So no matter what I do I believe it will look like a loop, even if it's "hidden". And it is a layout. So, I guess I can find bigger things to worry about.
