More work done at the harbor. I find that while working on the waterfront extension, I look for things to continue with it and end up finding detail that is needed at the harbor. I then switch back to detailing the dock in the harbor.
That is what is so satisfying about this hobby, you can move around the layout doing different scenes and not get bored. Your current project will still be there when you get back to it.
The night shift reporting for operations at the dock. The harbor master standing at the top of the stairs making sure that all will be okay for the night shift before he knocks of for a cold one at the bar across the harbor. This harbor scene is almost ready for the last two layers of Woodland Scenics water to be poured.
All the best

As I watch videos with newcomers to the hobby I keep seeing the same mistakes over and over again. I think this video could help some people.
To others, this is old news and they have already overcome their tendency to pack too much into too small of a space. I certainly understand when you start building your first layout that you want it to have everything you’ve ever seen on videos or pictures, but this video will help sort a few things out.
I started my YouTube channel in 2012 but was involved in engineering my entire working life. Along the way, I learned about inclines declines and the efficient use of space. All this experience, habits and knowledge helped me to build Farland B.
Farland B runs flawlessly. I could put a train on in the morning, shut the door, and come back in the evening and it would still be going as I left it. The reason? I used carefully applied good engineering standards to the design and construction. It makes a huge difference.

A huge thanks to Brian and Rob!
