Dan’s been in touch with his 35×15 HO scale:
“Here are some views of my 1958 to 1960 Santa Fe layout.
It is 35 by 15 HO scale in and around the New Mexico area.
The layout is basically a single deck with run through and storage (staging) under neath. It is DC and not DCC.
I primarily like to run the trains with very little switching. (I get all the switching and operations on the other layouts I have built or done the scenery work.)
I use a lot of ceiling tile for the rocks because it is easy and takes coloration and scenery materials well.
As I do the southwest, it has a more colorful look and a dryer feel.
I will send other photos of much greener and wetter look later.
The rocks are easy to make and arrange for the natural look. It would take a lifetime to carve plaster to look like this.
Santa Fe Dan”
A huge big thank you to ‘Santa Fe Dan’. I absolutely love what he’s done to the tiles for his scenery.

That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
