I have made some more progress. I've started carving the rock cliffs and laid the 3' gauge track. Currently I have mock ups for the buildings and trestle.



My plan is to build some log cribbing like this.




I collected some ponderosa pine twigs to make the cribbing but am unsure they will work. It seems hard to find ones straight enough and without insect damage. I think I will try looking for another species. I hope I can find something that will look correct. I am a little concerned about the amount of cribbing visually and may extend the trestle or something else.

It is always a good idea to cook in the oven all "natural" products as soon as they are brought into the house. You never know what may be hiding in them... Jose.

On that log cribbing, it might come to where you have to put on your movie set builder's hat and carve some representations from some square stock of some kind.

Even with that, as a general rule of life, it is nice to be back to making progress on a layout.

I did cook them as I had heard that before.

I'm going to think about doing that.
