Here are some pics of the beginnings of Stan's Warf section and some bridges, we have some rock molds on the way from Bragdon Enterprises and will be throwing down some hardshell on the trestle section withing the next 2 weeks. The bridge bents are also complete, but we will get the scenery done before we add the bents and stringers, I have a bridge tender's shack and a water tank in the works for the bridge scene
Progress as of November 26th 2010
Progress is picking up, layout has been fully tested, tweaked, taken apart, reassembled, run on and backdrop repainted. All wiring connectors completed between sections, all DCC Tortoise switched up and running. Layout was taken apart to test rigidity and weight per section ( acceptable ) and then put back together to test alignment of track and potential of damage to section ends. Ends were cleaned up of excess glue and paint and went together very well.
Scenery Forms Done Dec 4th 2010 All webbing complete, just have finalize one connection of fascia to Sawmill section. Hardshell will begin in the next week, we all have some time off for holidays and hope to complete hardshell on entire Layout and rock castings in Canyon area and othe small Rock features.
