So, with a layout centered on “Windsor St Yard”, it only makes sense that I include the actual Windsor St crossing. Windsor St is the small road that crosses the tracks just south of the yard. I wanted to make sure to do the crossing justice, but also had to fight with the actual layout […]
I’m continuing to play with my backdrops. Here are a few more test photos.
On Feb 25th, 2017, I had an open house to show off the layout. Here are some pics and a wrap up.
I’m doing some testing with larger photo backdrops. I’m pretty happy with the way this is turning out.
I feel bad that I haven’t been posting much of my recent progress, so here’s a catchup.
More progress on scenery this week. Now, the Black Bridge area.
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’ve had a chance to run the layout through a number of scenarios, and I realized that I did actually need the crossover I had debated putting in coming out of CP LOUCKS at the north end of Windsor St Yard.
This day was a long time in coming, but thanks to the help of my friends, it happened. Trains now can run around the entire layout. I made a Youtube video to document the event.
