Hey LongHornCaddy,
thanks for dropping by,

Been getting the benchwork and backboards up this last weekend in my last section to model in,this area is about 11" long,with a 5'x30" bumpout piece at the end.

got the sky and some trees painted on for my background scenes.
I haven't ever used this area before so I had to build everything up new.(benchwork & backboard)etc.
It really sqeased down my work bench area!

the track is going by at the far end with a dirt road crossing,
the road will come down the length, there will be a wooden single lane vehicle bridge along there,and then the road will curve onto the bumpout.
In front of the bumpout end I'm going to scratch build a general store for that areas scene.










This general store will also my build entry in the build challange.

Now I gotta go see if I can find one of those cold "Seattle Rainer" beers!



Randy

Randy,
Again outstanding Work !!!!
2 quick questions for you.
1. Will this layout be a single track mainline from point to point or will it run around the whole room.
2.Have your work been influence by Malcolm Furlow !!! I
can see some of it in your modeling but your work is a lot cleaner than his.

Many Regards:
Ronnie D.:cb:

Hey Ronnie,

this diorama build is a point to point.I remember Malcom in Model Railroader magazines,great inovative modeler,

my big time inspiration for  northwest scenery modeling was from a group of Aussies from down under who modeled a portable layout called the "Red Stag Lumber Co."there forest details blew me away! I've modeled all scales in all themes,but was never fully satisfied until I started modeling the Pacific Northwest in a 1930's setting with mountain Steam locomotives!

heres one of there links of pictures...

you may find more pics by googling "the Red Stag Lumber Co."

how my layouts look is due to there inspirational work 

Randy

Yes, I remember Malcom also...personally. Your work is much, much better. Please keep us up to date, more photos will do the trick. The Red Stag and Muskrat Ramble layouts are quite impressive and inspirational. Funny how Aussies can model the American South(M Ramble) better than most Americans. Keep up the great work.

Hey Woodie,

Ya not to besmirch american modelers,but a number of our friends from Down Under are alot of the best "Modelers" in the world!

I think with alot of them the "modeling" is there primary focus in there hobby,running trains,tho fun,is secondary to there hobby.maybe the opposite is true with american modelers. but a few of us as for myself are following there lead.

I notice alot of them just build dioramas ( as to prove my point ). which is fine with me cause thats my bent as well.

I guess I'm trying to model the US of A "Pacific Northwest"/Aussie style!

thanks for stopping by Woodie

Much can be said of outdoor large scalers in the UK compared to US modelers. Layouts in the UK tend to have a lot of detail and a sense of operational purpose whereas large scalers in the US tend to just throw a ton of track on the lawn so they can run big engines with long strings of freight cars. Not much creativity found in the US large scale community. :us:
