New scenery carved and painted with wall paint. Finish coloring will come next, then weeds etc.

Nice start on the layout!

That hoist cage is huge! I've seen a lot of hoist cages at old mines in the West, but none anywhere near as large as that.

What can I say, Homestake was a huge operation. I imagine they had to lower some very large things into the mine. Did you notice the relatively small guides on the side of the cage? The hoist house is still in operation lowering a similar cage. The Sanford underground laboratory personnel use it for what ever. Some 18" gauge tracks were retained for some use I am not aware of. I assume some rolling stock must also be in use.

Another change: I decided to breakup all that retaining wall under the roadbed. So a small bridge will be cut in to span a dry wash. This picture shows the rough-in beginning.

I made a little progress around the new bridge area. Before the bridge goes in, scenery behind the bridge and the dry wash need to be finished. Trying to do this after the bridge is installed would be a pain in the butt.

Next to the new bridge is the site for a future "DINKY" shed, left side of the barren track bed.

This shot will give a better idea of the space I have for a shed. It will be a single stall with a small shop area on the side.

Well, even Wikipedia now says: "( skinny dipping is done )  more recently in ... hot tubs.

Ah yes, skinny dipping, hot tubs are the most often place for that adventurous activity. My wife and I have a hot tub in our basement where just the two of us skinny dip.

I am almost finished with assembling and painting my nude figures and will post a photo soon. Not sure where they will end up on the layout, most likely near a future mountain resort. I like to ruffle a few feathers from time to time so we'll see how my nude figures are received

Just wondering... what meaning do the gold stars, sea shells and fire represent.
