Wayne’s been back in touch.
If you missed his first post it’s here.
And there’s also his scratch build, which is here.
I have a start on my hills now.
I am trying to get something that looks like it might be finished.
I have three differant colors on my hills. So far it seams that its going to work.
I still need to see if static grass can work on the hills. I am kind of pushing myself. I am leaving the middle of April for a 4 mo. road trip on my Harley trike.
While I am gone nothing will be done on the layout.
Except for ballasting the track I think this part of the hillside is just done? Right, sounds good.
I guess its right, your layout is never done. I have just finished some of the mountains, and now I am tearing up track and roadbed.
I widened one leg of my coal mine, then started tearing up the roadbed for the icehouse.
I have cut about 1 1/2 in’s off the bottom of the icehouse. When I but it togeather, this thing was huge. Far too much ice for this layout.
Now I have added a office at one end, shortened the ice loading platform, added a couple of doors. Making a cattle holding pen with ramps. This is needed for the new beef packing co. that is in 1/2 of the ice house, plus lots of cows. Just for fun of it this is what we call free range cows!
A huge thanks to Wayne – if you look at his earlier posts, you can see just how busy he has been, and what a project it is.
Can’t wait until the next update!
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to start on your layout – don’t let the start stop you!
