Hillside scenery & ballasting

February 7th, 2015

Today I ballasted the track at the Intermodal yard entrance to the tunnel, and added some basic ground cover.  I also added an interior to the tunnel, so when looking into the tunnel you can see the tunnel interior wall instead of just bare plaster cloth.

A lot more scenery to go, but I’ll finish the hilltop track first, then I can start on the staging yard.

Tunnel scenery work begins

February 2nd, 2015

I’ve started on the tunnel scenery by colouring & weathering the tunnel mouth & retaining walls, and also adding & colouring some small rock outcrops on the hill.  I’ve coloured some tunnel interiors & will be adding those later this week to the visible interiors of the tunnel mouths.
