    I just finished the mountain and thought that this was about enough progress to ask for some feedback. Comments?

    I plan on putting a hard shell of plaster stuff on it when I have time. The track isn't much, but I am more into the modeling aspect of this hobby. Of course I enjoy running the train, too. I didn't have many options with the cliff landform on the left side with the way the track layed out, but I am pretty happy with the way my mountain turned out. It is going to be covered with a gozillion cotton balls with fall foilage. Thanks for feedback.

    Whao...

    ...it looks like winter again- just when I'm getting used to the heat!!!

    Looks good- it has terrain, tracks and trains- super Dinkis.

    Looks good, especially to someone who has yet to try to build mountains, or any other scenery, for that matter (no layout).

    It looks good to me. The only question I have is that it looks like the track just to the left of center goes behind rather than over the tunnel portal? Did you leave enough clearance for a train going through that tunnel to clear?

    Well, the planning wasn't the greatest. This is my first layout. I had to pull some tricks for clearance, and everything works fine. But I'm sure they aren't up to NMRA standards. As a matter of fact, I know they aren't, I measured.

    Ha, I already told my girlfriend that it is done and that it is just a barren winter landscape.

    I don't get much time to work on it, so progress is slow.
