Eric the firefighter has been busy on his layout with some HO scale scenery ideas:
I would like to show updates that I have made in the past few months.
I will break this down in 4 emails.
I needed to do something to the layout . So in my mind I heard, Just don’t stand around do something, change something what could I do to spend more money and take up some time that I didn’t have.
SO after studying the layout I came up with removing my access panel to the upper layout and far coner of this lower layout. This had the flat mound that had the shooting range atop with a gun shop.
1st pic is with the mound in place .
2nd will show the mound removed from lower layout. (24″ x 20″ access hole.)
The rest will show the progress that started after the removal. I cut out a new section of plywood and foam board to begin building the new addition which was unknown at that time.
Next I covered with Woodland Scenics grass mat and then added foam edging around the seams to match existing layout.
Part 2 will come soon.
Thank you Al for sharing

I do love seeing an update, especially on a layout we’ve all been following for a while.
I can’t wait to see the next one. I think Eric is doing an excellent job, and best of all he seems to be having fun along the way.
A big thanks to Eric for sharing his HO scale scenery ideas. Clever stuff.
That’s all for today folks – please do keep ’em coming.
