Scenery well under way

December 28th, 2008

Still on track to finish the scenery in time for the Benson show on 10th January. In the last few days I have finished all the ballasting and have made good progress on the scenery.

This is the latest view of the farm scene on one of my end boards:

and a close-up of one of the tractors on the ploughed field, showing some of the ‘seedlings’ to the left of the tractor:

I have test fitted the yard lights and will be fixing them down and wiring them in the next day or so. I am almost ready to start installing the yard fencing, then will get to work on the road markings and the weathering. There are still two more buildings to come, under construction by two very helpful friends! Thanks Don and Graham! 🙂

Here is a view of the latest progress of the intermodal yard:

and a close-up showing a container stack, the loco shed (with refueling & sanding facility), and the yard lighting.

More updates to come in the next few days.
