Thanks, Ed and Dave !!

This is the final, at least as far as an sbs goes.

All I did to finish the tree out was tease out the foliage a bit, spray it with cheap extra-hold hair spray and sprinkle on a little Woodland Scenics grass blend.










Of course I still need to plant the tree.

The trees make everything look better, partly because they break up your layout into several scenes, each one more realistic. They add a lot to an already excellent layout.

Trees are so hard to model, IMO, and you do a stellar job, making it look easy.

Well done :)

Well, it's been a while. I haven't really done anything on the layout in a while. But I did acquire this Bachman 4-4-0.

Straight out of the box. It has some interchangeable parts with it, some of which I will likely swap out. Once I figure out what.










Who knows, maybe this is the jumpstart I need to get back to work on the layout.

The track is hand-laid, but the rail is from Atlas HO flex track.

I've made a few changes, most notably, I changed the coal load to a wood load. Now I need a wooding-up platform. Also changed the smokestack and the pilot. Fairly easy changes that would have been much easier with proper instructions. I took things apart only to find I didn't need to take them apart.










She's DCC equipped, unfortunately, I'm not. But she runs great as is.

I've been working on this "wooding-up" platform to compliment the new engine. Not really having a "good" place to put it I decided to move the carpenter shop further north and east and put some separation between it and the wood shop.

I've cut and chopped a whole lot of wood this weekend...and one finger.



















I still need to work it into the scenery and add more in-progress "wood".

Your platform is an unusual model and certain to start conversation. Very nice.

At the rate you’re going, how many fingers will you have left when you have enough wood chopped?
