Goodbye pink foam.

Yes it is true, even more pink foam has disappeared. Work has progressed on the lumber yard, yard and some forest area.

Working on the yard.

Laid some of the last track and installed the turn table and roundhouse. Still need to finish painting the turn table and details on the roundhouse. Also finished the lumber yard main building. Again, details in the future.

New Backdrops


I have added some backdrops to the HO layout. They really improved the layout adding both interest and depth. Here are some shots of Snaggletooth River, Vulcan and the new Yard.

Hexenkessel Chemical plant update


I have been doing some scenery work on the chemical plant. Slowly working my way back towards the yard. This blog needs a lot of updates and some things re-done, including the track plan, which finally, is finalized. In the meantime, enjoy the update photos. One thing you will see is the fact that backdrops have been put in place, which I must admit has added a lot to the layout.

So some progress is being made. The yard is laid and wired and all track is 95% laid. I still have the turntable,  caboose storage and work train storage tracks ad well as the engine terminal but all main line and the yard is down. Right now I am working on finishing the scenery at the chemical plant so I can focus on the new bits. Eventually I will revamp and clean up this whole site. Until then, some photos.  Cheers,
