Nothing like a Union pacific trundling along.!

Where'd you get the 57 chev from?

That looks fantastic. What it is to have space...

I'm still in the loft and can only dream of large return loops.

I look forward to seeing more in the future.

Had a busy day today!! Convinced wife that as i am full of cold it would be a bad idea for me to go with her to the in-laws :wink: Better to stay in the warmth of our home (or the shed :lol: ).

So had a productive day painting the background sky for the town end, done a bit of landscaping and temporarily placed buildings, cars etc to get a fell for what i am trying to achieve. I have also painted all the side boards blue and incorporated a 'hatch' in the tunnel section in case of derailment!

Pictures will follow very shortly!

hint of the day....

I have also discovered a use for the set of blusher brushes which I had bought for the wife last Christmas (she obviously was so impressed she dumped them under the bed!!). They make a good applicator for balast as they are softer than any decorators brush. They are also great for applying weathering powders.

and this is the view from the town side looking back

Great Pictures
I like the idea of the tunnel access panel, to get to the area were locos are most likely to derail, to piss you off.
