April Progress

I've had another Ops Session, I'm hoping to have another one soon. They seem to be a great way to stimulate progress.

My last session lasted a little over 2 hours and flowed well. I think I only had to bad order one car the entire time, and over 50 cars were moved during the session.

Here a cut of cars are being brought into Rush City. The sole bad order was moved to the engine house for repair. The Master Car Repairmen there had it back in service the next day.
The scene if filling in nicely. The Mill got a base coat of white and is waiting for detailing. The garage behind the Masonic Lodge is in and the ground cover is expanding. There is less than half a square foot left to cover in the 18 square feet of Rush City.
I began work on the Creekside Cafe, another Rush City landmark taking shape.
The Prototype:
I also worked more on Ivy Farms. It turns out they are a trucking company. That makes a lot more sense than the dairy they once were.
It looks like they got a new roof on the shed. I'll have to repaint mine.
Rock Creek is closer to done too. I got the rails painted, I repainted the bridge piers and added guard rails. I got more of the ground cover done (it still has a long way to go). But the bridge is in an weathered. Best of all it holds up trains.
Thanks for watching!

  1. Great looking scene Karl. Your RR is looking very much like the real stuff. Your scratch built building are really very good.

    1. Thanks! That's what I'm shooting for. I have a long way to go, but I think I'm off to a pretty solid start.
