John’s been back in touch again.
Last time we saw him working on a his mine module (you can see that, here).
This time, he’s slots it in to place on his layout.
Stunning stuff as usual:
The mine module featured on my last email to you is now ‘home’ next to the ‘newer’ mine placed some months ago.
The pictures show it as I blended in the mountains and plaster work. Looks like my measurements for how the mountains would fit worked pretty well.
Next steps are add the guard rail blocks along the coal truck passage, clean-up of the siding rails and general adding of vehicles and stuff to add the look of clutter and life. A machine shed for the mine trucks and parking area for mine employees will go to the right of these modules and complete this side of the layout.
I took heart from a comment on the last post about being able to go back to a picture and pick out more detail, so I got busy on the machinery sheds for the old mine and added more stuff.
I’ll be back in touch when the back-drops are painted and installed.
Thanks to you and the many friends I’ve never met,
John From Baltimor”
A huge thanks to John. It’s so wonderful to see this layout come together. I do love it when I see his name pop up in my inbox. Stunning stuff.
You know what else I like these posts? The comments. And as John says, they are read and taken in to consideration. So please do scroll down and let us know what you’re all thinking.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
