    thanks much for the overall shots. You've packed a lot of action in that space. I still think those indian ruins are a great touch and make the layout timeless.:thumb: :thumb:

    Wow, impressive layout Fifer!!! Your craftsmanship and attention to detail really shows. Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing more pictures. I like the clean lines of your control panel; how did you build it? Jim

    This is the center mountain with paint.
    The black blob in the middle is a mine to be detailed later.
    This is all the base cover with trees and other foliage to be applied later.

    Thanks Guys

    Thanks Guys ,I hope to get the rest of the existing plaster painted around the other half of the layout sometime this week.
    I got out the bright boys last night and got a train running.
    All the wiring is done except for the 2 reversing tracks.
    I have about 6 or 7 hundred trees made up and would like to start planting on the mountain. I need to do the icey creek running down above the facia opening on the helix first.
