May Update

Where did this month go? I seriously blinked and it was gone!
I've made progress in a few different areas this month. Engines, freight cars, structures and scenery.

I finally finished the BNSF AC44C4M I started 3 years ago. This will be added to my BNSF fleet for unit sand train power.
I also finished a custom ES44C4 project. This one will probably head to eBay. I like the Swooshes, but I think I have more than I need.
Work has started on the control tower for Titan-Lansing. I have a ways to go, but I'm happy to get this one kicked off.
 You can see the prototype in the lower left part of this photo.
I also got another box of SuperTrees. I made about 100 so far, I think that gets me up to about 400 or 500 trees on the layout so far.
I also body mounted the couplers and added conspicuity striping to a few more freight cars. I think I have about 2/3 of the layout cars body mounted at this point. I think I'm only about 60% on the conspicuity striping. At least they all are weathered and have metal wheels.
