Here’s the second installment from Joeseh’s HO build. (His last post is here.)
“I’ve been really working on the landscaping this last year and here is where I am. By no means done (are we ever?) but all the big stuff is finished.
Construction on the West end of the layout.
One of the challenges was blending the already completed scenery smoothly with the new section.
I added a lot of rock outcroppings here.
Here is the west end completed. The logging operation’s water tower can be seen in the background.
Looking “east”. Cold storage and oil distribution platform. M.O.W. crane car to the right.
Oil distribution tank farm in the foreground.
Most of the buildings in place. 4-6-0 passenger train checking all clearances. (For the last time!!!)
There will be more as I progress.
Enjoying the hobby!
I have just uploaded this video showing a couple of tips, also getting near now to completing this layout, a lot of ballasting to do and a few electrics as yet, but with a bit of luck another couple of weeks should see it completed…I know… never completed ..LOL
A huge thanks to Joseph and Dave. It’s just fantastic to see your layouts emerge from nothing more than a table and come to life.
That’s all this time. Please do keep ’em coming – and don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if now is your time to shine.
