    Next using the same method as I used on the abutment I recolored the creek wall.

    First I painted it with Folk Art Linen

    I also began working on the foliage. Here are some progress shots near the abutment. I am using Woodland Scenics Tree kits, Clump Foliage, Fine Leaf Foliage, and Foliage.

    Thanks Val.


    I finished the foliage on the hillside. Now it is onto the area behind the station.

    Thanks guys.

    I continued my tree planting and foliage laying. This time I worked on the area along side the station. I still have more foliage to place in and around the trees.

    I am beginning to work on the highway bridge. It is a kit made by Rixx.

    Here are all the parts laid out.

    I have begun to assemble the pier. Here is the foundation. I am planning on painting the pier after it is assembled. The parts didn’t want to stay on the spurs so I figured to go this way with it.

    sweet, looking forward to the highway overpass, I am wanting to do that on our little layout. Funny thing is I put the same train station together for our layout although not weathering it (yet) and then I saw this thread. thanks for sharing your work with us, helps us new to the hobbie get an idea how the pros do it.

    Back to the diorama itself.

    I have pretty much finished the foliage. I add foliage, fine leaf foliage, and clump foliage to the trees along the side of the station.

    I also completed the last section

    The next few shots are some overall photos of how the diorama now looks with the foliage pretty much complete.
