More progress on scenery this week. Now, the Black Bridge area.
Things have progressed to the point where I can now get some ground cover down at Hanover Junction.
Many years ago I owned a Volvo 240DL wagon. It was a great car. Eventually, the expected costs of running it caught up with it, and I ended up trading it in for a newer one. When I discovered a model of the car on Shapeways, I had to have one.
I realized that, while I’ve been very busy on the layout, I haven’t posted many updates on it lately, so here’s a big cumulative update on where things sit at the beginning of October 2016.
I realized that computers and smart phones could help us create a more engaging model railroad operations experience after reading Lance Mindheim’s excellent book on modern shelf layout operations. The TrainCrew app that I’ve built does just that.
