    Some things I discovered from this is that I am going to need to do a cap for the abutment. Also I can’t paint the highway bridge pier until I have the abutment finished because I will have to adjust its height.

    If you want some additional information on the progress of the diorama and see what foliage materials I used check out:

    Looking good Tom.

    I've got this group of locos done, other than weathering.
    This is the Athearn F7A-B set with a little bit of details added.

    #1851 is another Bachmann F9 shell modified to represent a phase II F7.
    I plan to start the next group of locos tomorrow.

    Thanks Val and Tom.
    At the moment I have 35 loco projects at various stages of completion.
    I have been working on them in groups determined by what modifications are being done or the color I will be spraying.
    For an example.
    I have a pair of GP35s and a couple BN caboose projects that need the BN green sprayed.
    Another group would be the Model Power RS11, an AHM GP18 and an AHM Alco 1000 switcher that I am rebuilding the pilots, adding wire hand rails and grab irons and repainting. These are all getting remotored and regeared also.

    I finished the forest area on my layout. Here are the last pictures of the last section. I might add more wild life later but for now it is finished.

    Great job on the locomotives Ray!

    I have gotten off track a little while I was waiting for the glue and paint to dry on the abutment cap.

    I satrted weathering an IHC Lehigh Coal & Navigation Company 2-6-0 Camelback. At the time of the picture I still need to seal with Dullcoat and do the coal load in tender.

    Here is a progress shot of another 2-6-0 Camelback. It started out as a C&O unit. I removed the lettering, painted the handrails, and weathered the tender trucks and wheels. I will lettered for Lehigh & New England.
