Kragle restructure

The Station was too far away from "downtown" Kragle. Looked out of place, with no connection to the town. The two track covered station was also too big.

Its now a covered platform with a single track, and a siding.


IMG_0353

Reuse of the "park" from one of the previous iterations of the station.
IMG_0368

I think the empty spot will be utility mail and baggage "stuff"
IMG_0369

Kragle gets a new arrangement of tracks with simplified sidings for two industries. Some of the old buildings get moved again.

The "downtown" platform stays pretty much the same, but the hotel get a new rooftop addition.

2. Keep the city silhouette backdrop in a Bellinadrop approach.
3. Incorporate a mirror.
4. Road/street based structure.
5. Districts: Downtown, skid row, Wharehouse/factory, Industry.
6. Removable, for service, modules.

Kragle - Seedy Side of Town

Starting to work on the seedy side of town, on "the wrong side of the tracks".

Growth of the city


The back wall needs some work.

IMG_0538

Maybe add an industry and a support for the bridge.
IMG_0541IMG_0548

need another section of bridge.

We'll deal with the right side of the layout "eventually".

Misc




IMG_6907
Back run probably too tall.

IMG_6904
Added portal for test fit and look.

IMG_6903
Didn't like the "layer cake" (but I may live with it)

IMG_6902
Was going to add a second mid-mt route. Approach since abandoned.

IMG_6898
Added the "top" layer. Mine loop.

IMG_6897
More of the mine loop. Push the cars, then they"run away". Started as an accident, but I kinda like the whimsy of it.

Urban Module Work

A few pick-ups from eBay


IMG_5873
Station

IMG_5874
and some "Down Town" buildings. Heavy paint and not quite "Square". (Not that I have any room to critique)

IMG_5876
Moved the platform to the back of the station.

IMG_5878
Trying different combinations of the buildings. And cleaned up the paint a bit.

IMG_5882
I think the station will get a fancy roundabout like DC Union Station.

IMG_5887
Another module on module approach for the city buildings.

IMG_5888IMG_5896
Sandpaper "roads" - not bad.

The track in front is the dock line.
