We start today with another quick update from Hall of Fame member, Arnie.
(If you missed his last post, it’s here.)
“Hi Al — Just a quick follow-up on further inquiries from viewers about the layout. Despite the submitted track plan, some viewers seem hard-pressed to visualize the entire layout of the SV&GS. So I’ve attached 4 photos I just took, one from each corner of the layout and going clockwise starting at the Southeast corner. Hope this gives a better perspective on the bi-level layout that can be confusing from the track plan. (By the way, photos appearing on the walls of the train room were all taken on the layout and have been published in various model railroading magazines.)
There were also questions about the backgrounds I use. I have about eight photo backdrops that I use extensively for taking photos and videos. Some can be aligned consecutively to create a longer scene. I use them as portable backdrops wherever needed to give greater depth and realism to scenes. There is one that I put into the enclosed photos as a quick reference in the distance. The backdrops are by Realistic Backgrounds.com.
And I want to thank everyone for the well-wishes for a speedy recovery from my injury. I assure everyone that I am perfectly fine and I am “up and running” though a little awkwardly handling objects.
And now for the latest from my good friend John. He’s been busy with the latest print out scenery, and has cobbled together another video:
Here’s some pics of the water towers and brick office shed John made:
As always, there’s an offer before I get them on the site.
And there lies the problem. I’m kept busy with the blogs so I still haven’t got the last lot on the site yet – but I’m going as fast as I can folks. Please bear with me.
Anyhow, you can grab both water towers and the brick office shed for just $9.97.
(Some of the more eagle eyed readers will notice these water towers go perfectly with these engine sheds – that’s intentional… so if you want the engine sheds to go with them, they’re here).
Or perhaps you just want to roll up your sleeves and get going with the Beginner’s Guide.
That’s all this time folks. A huge thanks to John and Arnie.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And please comment below if you enjoyed John’s video – if we keep commenting, he’ll keep making ’em.
