    Working our way along Bird Creek. The gravel road cuts under Hwy 167 and the railroad bridge to reach Bird Creek Lift Station. I still have a lot of ground cover to spread.

    More ground work on Bird Creek. Nice thing about NE Oklahoma is there are plenty of trees and bushes. I like modeling spring when everything has greened back up and looks fresh.

    I need to improve the look of the gravel areas. It is too coarse even using N Scale ballast. I’m going to find some unsanded grout in a light beige color to simulate fines in the road. I had some coarse flint rock that looked like rip-rap under the bridge.

    This is the North side of the creek. The south side will have exposed rock faces. I need to finish up this side, then I’ll get on to the south side.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Now Vince don’t knock cow pies! They have a variety of uses! Fertilizer, you can burn them for warmth and cooking purposes, in the dry state can make a reasonable frisbee for disc golf or play. Not to forget that time proven comment on what is coming out of our nations capitol on a regular basis, bull s**t! So think twice before you slander the lowly cow pie!!!!

    Have a good day friend! And don’t forget, never play tackle football in a pasture!

    Planting more trees than the CCC! I’m pretty well done with the north bank for now. Time to move on to the south bank. BTW, I added the big cottonwood in front of the building, if it’s too much, we can chop it down!
