Got this in from Hall of Fame member, Brian – his latest layout is really starting to take shape now. I still have no idea how he gets so much charm and character in to them.
progress on the layout. Gone is the snow (styrofoam) and greenery and shrubs now in place as well a the start of the trees.
The hole in the layout (middle right) in the bottom photo is where the Spar tree (log loader) will be situated to load the logs onto the empty log cars.
Cheers – Brian”

Excellent Shay, beautifully weathered. The Shay is my favorite engine. Hard to find one in HO.
The trees are also well done. I am looking forward to seeing your spar tree and loading facility.
Keep on training,
