Grass Is Growing

A special thanks to my Dad for picking up the Silfor I needed at the train show in Milwaukee. It has allowed me to fill in the swamp scene on my Sandstone module. I have also painted and installed the first fascia board.

ILSX GP9 1363 is back on duty following a completion of repairs to the Snake River Bridge in Pine City. Thanks to ILSX for putting her in a paint scheme more suited to her assignment. Sorry the picture isn't better, I ran out of daylight.

Layout progress

Two of the layout sections I have been putting the most time into lately. The top one is the Sandstone swamp scene. I need more trees yet and some long grass (probably Silfor) to cover the brown area. This section is the revised North Branch scene. Since I took this picture I have finished the land forms, painted and put ground cover (grass) over everything but the cork area where the Peterson Co-op will sit.
