    The ballast is not yet glued down so I could still change it around. That sounds kinda cool, what is an automated signal system?

    Here are some more pictures with trucks and trains by the glacier gravel, blue star and asphalt plants.

    I desided to wheather the glacier gravel building so here is my first attempt at whaethering a building. I used the same process as wheathering trains. The first pic is a little dark and makes the building look a little darker.

    Well I have started the to lay the joint compound down for the Magic Pan Bakeries Complex. I found that you really need to do 2 coats, 1 for the rought coat and 1 for the smooth coat)

    I almost finished the Loading dock area but I have to wait to get the track in first before I can do anymore o that side of the building. So I moved to the other side of the complex. I made the road that leads to the main office. I just put the first coat down, now I have to wait for it to dry to smooth it out. The first coat took about 5 or 6 hours to dry on the loading dock area so I am assuming it will take this long again. I will post some pictures of it later or tomarrow morning.

    Thanks Deano, I was pretty happy with the turnout. The first time I did it, It came out really dark so I put some Laquer thinner on a paper towel and went over the hole thing and lightined it up a little.

    Here are some pictures of how the Magic Pan Bakeries complex is coming along and some pictures of the plaster roads/yard. In the second to last picture is the main road (next to track bed) and the Magic Pan YAard enterance. The main road keeps going down both ways (I just havn't done it yet) The yard road goes to the yard but I have to lay the track and switch in first.
