Looking good, Larry. Really has the character of the area. It has the appearance of a much larger structure than it actually is. I think the various sections and the different angles contributes. Good example of selective compression.
This shows the simple track arrangement, just three turnouts. Counting the two ore load out tracks, the coal dumping spot, a stop inside the building and one where the boss is standing (previous picture) there are 6 places to spot a train. LG
My sky backdrop has been bothering me for some time now. It seemed far to short, ending just inches above the scenery. South Dakota has a very big sky, just like Montana. So, I have started adding another 12" to the top of the 24" already in place. The wood supports, seen sticking out the top of the backdrop, will receive a 12" extension as well. Blending the new with the old is a lot of messy work. I feel the outcome is worth all the hassle. Larry G
