A few trees.  Thought I would take a break from the rocks

Had a few mates around and we all got stuck into making trees, They are made using the twisted wire and rope fibre.  The following picture has about 44 conifers and several Aspens using Supa trees.

The supa trees are difficult to bring into Australia with our import rules. I did manage to find a hobby shop that imports them in bulk orders.

I have included a Porter and a Boxcar for a size comparison.

I can make about 20 trees a day with out busting my gut.

Great stuff Don. After about 3 or 4 thousand more, it will either look like Colorado or you will be in the looney bin!

A few rocks with a train on the trestles at Sutton Crossing.

Both of the trestles are close to being finished. 

I had my fingers crossed as the various locos found their way across, There is a 27 inch drop . I was being very very carefull.

I have been rather slow working on the Sutton crossing. Time flies when your having fun.
