I also decided to lower the corner a bit to gain some scenery below track level.
Flat, level terrain is not very interesting to my eye, so I try to build below and above track level whenever possible.    Larry G

Very effective "view" past the end of the divider. Almost like looking at real scenery through a window.

Hi Larry :wave:


Lookin' good. :bg:


I know what you mean about 'above/bellow' scenery, nice move on that modded area.

I see now your 'mainline' goes around quite a length, nice !


Quite a stash of scenic material in jars, by the looks of things. :shocked:

I have been hoarding plastic peanut butter jars myself for a while now ! ;)

With the arrival of summer, I find it hard to spend time down in the basement. I have made a little progress. a bunch of ties are in place at the mountain lodge site and also the Appetite Mine site. Started work on the "Needles" area that will be the transition between the lodge and mine. The needles will also cover the end of the divider backdrop as seen in this pic.   Larry G

With all our hot weather this last month, I found it more pleasant to stay inside. So, I've been working on the Royal Shafting Mining Co's Appetite Mine layout. Finished the track work at the Big Stone Mountain Lodge. Just need to wire it now since I am using track power. Trackage at the mine area is close to being finished as well.

My other area of progress has been the "needles" transition area between the lodge and the mine. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the geology of the Black Hills: the "needles" are very large Granite monoliths found in the central part of the Black Hills. These formations were eroded to their present splendor over millions of years.

The following photos will show my version of the "needles" area.

Over view from the lodge side of the layout. The unfinished cardboard webbing will become tunnel #1.    Larry G

Tunnel #2, cut through one of the "needles" to large to blast out of existence.

Hi Larry
Well that certainly takes your layout to "new heights" :2t: 

Please keep the updates coming.
