Man...that is ONE FINE LAYOUT you have going! Really nice trackwork and structures in place. I need to get to Fairview sometime to see it in "the flesh". Thanks for telling us the story, please continue.

Got some pretty neat projects there.
For some reason 'task board' is unfamiliar to me, so, not knowing what it is, or having known and forgotten, I went and looked it up,
Found:
"Taskboard is an ultralight wood fiber board. Being light weight, it is extremely easy to cut.

Taskboard is rigid, stays flat, and won't curl when dry. Yet when sprayed with water on both sides, it becomes pliable and can be formed into 3D shapes.

Architects prefer Taskboard when laser cutting since edge-burn is very light and can be sanded off. Laser surface etching also produces superior results.

Taskboard is available in Basswood-toneā„¢ and white. Basswood-tone has a more distinct wood texture. White is better for forming 3D shapes and smaller radii."

Wow Dwayne, that layout is great!

Thanks for the reference to taskboard and the link. I think that stuff may work in my Silhouette Curio cutter. It looks like very useful material.

OUCH! looks like shipping is prohibitive on the stuff. But, there is a store in Salt Lake that I may get to in a couple of weeks.

I forgot to come back here and comment on the taskboard. I did get some at the bookstore in Salt Lake. They were closing it out and I got 10 sheets for a buck a sheet. I haven't used it yet, but I think it may become the backscene material for my layout.

Here a little update as of Jun 26, I have not work on the layout since.

If you did not notice in the previous set of photos above, there is a bridge missing.



It's been a very long project for me in replacing this bridge. The original bridge had issues and the approach track had vertical alignment issues causing uncoupling. Today I finish this project  that was started in Sept 2015.

Here are some photos of the project









3D Printed bridge shoes



Paint and weathering completed





Install completed waiting on glue to dry



Trains running again

Hi Dwyane, that bridge looks great! And so is the rest of your work.
Hard to believe it is N scale.
