Yes Reg

I miss John also. He would have come up with the definitive list plus other information in the time I takes me to scratch around

Not award winning by any means, but the best scenery work I have ever done.









Still some clean up and detail work to do (like trees), but I am generally pleased with the results.

My next task is to focus on the demo work to the east in preparation for laying more track.

My wife says the reason I struggle with scenery is because I am a mechanic, not an artist.

No truer words were ever spoken.

Lots of layouts in my history that never got any scenery at all.  Handlaid track, scratch built structures, even some scratch built locomotives...but no scenery.

One of my goals with this layout was to have at least some kind of scenery...and to spend less time on the "mechanics".  The plan was to use r-t-r equipment, quick build structure kits and commercial track. 

And then I ordered a $450.00 craftsman kit.
The secret to this small degree of success is to spend money and blindly follow the instructions.

Hi Reg
Scenery looks really good. I am always surprised how just some basic ground cover and ballasting brings the layout to life. Always spurs me on to do more. Just have to have the motivation to start!!
I just looked up the mill on the BTS website and there is a comment that they did all the  framing for a O-scale version in a day. So hopefully a couple of weeks might see the basic structure completed
As I am back home another couple of loggers with running  over a class one were Puget Sound and Pacific over the GN in Skagit county, Oregon American/IP into Vernonia OR using disconnects over the SP&S. Also Weyco's OC&E at Klamath Falls had to run log trains over the SP and BN to get from the logging railroad to the mill

Being a mechanic hasn't hindered your scenic work at all Reg and it's good to see how well it's coming on. Trees, as you say, will lift it even further as will undergrowth and weeds, all available r-t-r or as material for you to make up yourself. :2t::apl:

Try this with a medium or large format camera.




Long live the cell phone camera.  I even had to be a bit tricky to get this one.  I had to hold the phone upside down.

I need to work on the lighting.

I agree. All you need is a lot of undergrowth away from the tracks, a lot of trees (which can easily be found commercially for the fir trees that are the most common in the area) and it'll look a lot like the Pacific Northwest. I think you're about 75-80% there when it comes to scenery as the 'heavy lifting' part appears to be already done!
