    Here is what I was finally able to do (railroad related) today. The Glacier Gravel Building is built stock , I am just bashing the conveyors. Got to move to the other side now. You will not see the backside from the layout front , just the rear conveyor.

    Really impressive. The angle supports add a lot of detail.

    I really like the look of that layout. After seeing that picture I had to do a search to find more pictures of your layout. Looks great.

    Note that the third picture is a MT shell on a modified Model Power track cleaner. These three cars will most likely all become cleaners.
    I am also headed to th train room as I got the unobtainium plant mounted yesterday and plastered in place. I will be ballasting track and coloring earth and rock piles.
