Considering the deteriorated condition of the equipment it was a necessity to have a small engine repair shed. The shed also reflects the thrifty approach to the railway. I do intend to outfit it with a work bench and some tools.

The engine shed has been in place for a little while now and the vines are beginning to overtake it.

Today I built a fuel tank for one end of the layout. Simple affair made from a cardboard tube, some heavy paper and card stock. Painted with acrylics. Now need to find some clutter like gas cans, 55 gal drums etc to fill in the area.

Really nice stuff, Bob! Thanks for sharing your work with us. Any chance we could see some close up images of the engines and rolling stock?

Close up of one of the yellow critters. All 4 are scratch built with balsa, cardstock and brass tubing. All are powered by Bachmann GE44 ton power trucks and DelTang RC gear with a single cell LIPO.
