Several Little Things

Luke's River and Bub's Button

Ripped out the bubbled realistic water and re-applied plaster cloth. Needs some additional plaster, painting and re apply the water. 3rd times the charm.

Also added "Bub's Button". An on-while-pressed controller for the mine train.

Roadhouse Corner Road


Redid the road through Roadhouse Corner. Now it goes "someplace" instead of falling off the cliff.

Track Realignments


Not much to look at, but leveled the divide crossover and cleaned up the geometry of the tracks between Roadhouse Corner and the saw mill. Still need to add feeder to the high route to station track.
IMG_2856

Re-aligned the tracks in the curve behind the saw mill. Much cleaner curves.
IMG_2857

The cleaned up track seems to "flow" much better through this section.
IMG_2858

Aligned the short section to better parallel the siding track. Also made a bit more room for the station.

High Route Incline Bellinadrop


Made some adjustments to the Bellinadrop curve for a, hopefully, more interesting "peak-a-boo" view of the trains going up, or down, the incline behind the "front range".

Rural Town


Just starting to think about developing this area.
Two layers of structures, Shops lower, houses higher with steep road up.

Even more mill pond

Added debris around pond edge, logs and fresh coat of "water".

More Mill Pond

IMG_8188
Log more to scale.

IMG_8187
Added plaster to raise the pond.

Then painted the "bottom"

Mill Pond Evolution

IMG_8108

Dug the pond too deep. Resin water.

IMG_8107
And the logs are too too big. Not to scale.

Lumber Mill


I think I've pretty much arrived at a plan for the saw mill area.
