I just installed some back steps on one of my Depots, because as I looked at it I realized it was one heck of a drop from the threshold down to the gravel. That's what I'm doing with the layout now, I'm looking at things with an eye to determine whether they actually make any kind of real sense or not. If they don't, they get changed or corrected to what it would normally be like. So, there's no way a drop this high would still exist on the back door of the Depot like that.

I think it's little details like that, that makes a layout better...

Getting some polypuff trees in the hills and pines and deciduous trees on the ground in place, slowly...

I'm also putting in bushes under things and along places where nobody would be going, like under this dock next to the small depot.

Lee--
Don't look now, but someone parked their Frisbee on top of no.11's stack-- First good chuff, and it might set a new frisbee altitude record.

I was looking for one of these push mowers for a long time and finally found one, due to Charlie over at the O scale forum. It's from the front of a Woodland Scenics structure.

Small details like this is what I'm focusing now, and I'm really enjoying this part of the layout build!

Hi Lee,
Nice work, this is really starting to come together well.

Perhaps a (rocking?) chair or 2 out on the front porch to sit and watch the world go by on at the end of a hard day??

Hi Lee,
Maybe this one might do?
http://outbackmodels.com/Furniture/furniture.html
Given that 1 of our $'s is only equal to 3/4 of yours, this might be an option.

I have built two of the rocking chairs - they are a little fiddly to build but are OK when together. So here's a photo



The furniture is a laser cut on thick high-density card. The shed will reappear on my Corrimal thread sometime in the future

I took some general photos with a better camera and played around with them. Mind you, this is without any special lighting and no tripod was used...
