    Well, here are some pics, I added more scenery to the hill area, and some junk to the loco/caboose tracks scene. I spent $43 at the LHS the other day, so I have no money to go back, but I need more scenery supplies. So for now, enjoy these.

    Spent another $34 dollars at the LHS on supplies to make 14 Woodland Scenics trees. Those thinks are expensive if you want to put on a decent amount of folliage and have them look nice. Anyway, I have 14 more trees and on corner of the layout sceniced, other than ballast. Pics to come soon.

    Im suprised, no comments on the videos. I should have a better one or two comming.

    Thanks for the comments, I really enjoy them. I hope to get one of those taconite train vids done in the sceniced area soon.

    Still debating if I want to scratch an ore dock, or buy two kits. There are two on ebay, but going for $200!!!!! No wonder they havent sold yet, maybe the seller will get a clue and lower the price, one was just on for lower than regular store price, but it was in austrailia, shipping was like $60.

    The bridge is also really bothering me, I also hope to figure that out soon.

    Everything looks great Kevin!

    Ok, dont worry I have not forgot about the thread. I just have been very busy lately and have spent a lot more time on a different forum :eek:. Sorry to say. :cry: Anyway, I have been busy at school, I have gotten my licesnce, I have (been trying for a long time, finally got in and passed on the first time) have been working at a bowling tournement where I have been "stiffed on tips numerous times.

    Anyway, I headed into the basemant upalled at the mess I left myself last time I was down there. I only added to the problem tonight but I added a little more scenery and it felt GREAT to be down there again.

    Well I have more bad news about time for trains, I got my new schedule for my third trimester today, and I have MANY classes whic will be heavy on homework, and no study hall. I will be bringing home more homework than I have for a few years. I hope that I can find SOME time to dedicate to trains and my three favorite forums, (this is number 1) to keep from going crazy, I have BIG problems focusing on homework at home. But my two month weekwnd job is ALMOST over, so I will atleast get weekends back.

    I hope to add more progress shots VERY soon, so please check in.
