    Absolutely fabulous work and pictures too:D The first though through my mind was "that's the color I want for the scenery I want to create." Your shots are like a primer for me to follow, although I have in mind more of rolling hills than abrupt terrain.

    Please keep the pictures coming. I think they are great.

    A few more details to make the community look more realistic. I spent last evening painting the details to the junk and some of Sunday afternoon was spent constructing the road along the tracks.

    This shot from a little farther back also shows the recent work on the elevator area.

    Ballasting of the track on the Telocaset module is done. I'll be starting to add some details once I decide just what buildings to include and where to put them. Suggestions anyone?

    Coming along nicely upguy! :cool: In regards to other buildings, most little communities like that had a general store, gas station, church and maybe a post office and/or diner.

    This weekend I worked on scenery for the entrance to Government Gulch (helix) which is shown in the attached picture.

    Also worked a little on the area around the grain elevator at Telocaset. Still quite a bit to be done, but any work completed brings a new look to the project.

    I love it. It looks really great. Is the train in the first photo coming from the helix?

    Would love to see a picture of the actual entrance into the helix sometime if it is convenient.

    Keep up the great work. I am very interested in your progress.

    Bob,

    Yes, the first photo on page 7 is showing the train rounding the turn after emerging from the helix. The entrance to the helix is actually intended to be hidden from view, so no special sceniking or tunnel portal is used. It is supposed to look like the train is disappearing into a canyon (Government Gulch has no tunnel), but I had to get the trains to the lower level somehow.

    I'll post a recent picture of the area, but you might find it disappointing. (I also showed an earlier helicopter's view of the area on page 5.) It is not easy to take a picture of something that was designed to be out of sight. :rolleyes:

    Thanks upguy. I understand what you are doing, I was just curious about the transition. I assume you would basically have to be near the ceiling to see the actual transition and you can't see it from any of the usual vantage points in front of the layout.

    I really like what you are doing. I also wish I could get my act together to spend more time with my layout. I keep moving along, but at this stage the evidence of progress isn't very evident. I think that is why I am getting anzious to get to the scenery part.

    Again, thanks for the photo and explanation.

    Bob

    I haven't posted anything for a while, so thought I would give you a taste of things to come.... I now have two fellows that come regularly to help with the layout. One of them is super knowledgeable about computers, and he is working on a signal system for the layout. With his ability the layout possiblities boggle my mind. :eek: :confused:

    Here is a quicky picture that I took tonight that shows the beginnings of the signaling. Not a very good picture, but it shows a little of the potential.

    N-joy

    Here is another picture which shows the signal as a train is approaching a clear block.
