Nice work on the rock carving. and the base of the incline plane looks very solid :2t:

Thanks guys, foam carving is easy work but takes a while to master. So far my attempt is looking presentable, I think. Here's a progress shot...

Another shot showing the opening covered over with plaster cloth. Also a bit more progress on the rock carving.   Larry

Close-up of the same area with a primer coat of low priced wall paint. Next job is to color the "rocks" with something that looks reasonably realistic.

I've been working on the population for the layout. Here are the first 33 figures with 20 more in the works.

My appetite for figures includes some skinny dippers. I am assuming that posting photos of these adventurous folks would get me into hot water, am I right?

For what it's worth... I had forgotten about this picture. It shows the foam packing I used to make up the main frame of part of my layout. I made two sections like this, each 5' long. That's a "G" scale trestle from my old outdoor layout you can see in the background.

My track was looking way to close to the edge of the layout. I decided to add a little extra foam and extend a small area out by 3". Also added a rock out cropping to break-up the scenery a bit.
