What Happened To Spring?

The last couple of months flew by faster than expected. I figured I'd fill everyone in on the layout progress.
I have been ballasting Rush City. I need to get going on the Ardent Mill. My new BLMA PD Hoppers have been delayed until June. I'll try to have the scene ready for their arrival.

 Next door to the Mill I've added the electrical substation. I still have a lot of details to add, but it a start.

Over at Zinpro, buildings are starting to appear, the spur is ballasted and wheel stops have been added.

I've also added derails in a few spots. Zinpro, Tiller and the North end of the flour tracks at Ardent. I still have to put in the south Ardent derail, but I'll get to that when I ballast that area.

I wish I had more to report, but that's it on the layout for now.


  1. Hi Karl.
    Love the substation and the derail, almost makes me want to start over instead of pulling down my SFRSD.
    Its all looking great.

    1. Rod,
      I always enjoyed reading about the SFRSD. I hope you build something to go in the new house!

  3. I'll echo Rods comments about the sub station and derail!!!

  4. That derail is sharp! Is it scratch built or purchased?
