Alan,

Welcome aboard!

There's nothing like visiting the sites that you want to model.
Photos and maps don't always cut it.
Often you need to experience the 'feel' of the area you're trying to re-create.

The California Western between Willits and Fort Bragg is a standard gauge railroad that use to be a logging line.
Now it's there for the tourist trade.
They still have some neat equipment to see including The Skunk.

I hand made a few trees for a past On30 layout using fern for the branches.
It wasn't hard to do, but it was time consuming especially the 18" and 24" tall trees.

Like other have requested please keep the photos coming!
