    You really need to stop trying to pass off these prototype photos as your models, Jon! :D

    Incredible work. Inspiring.

    Work on the trees and ground cover continues rapidly and tonight I finished the basic scenery in the East Yard. There's still a bit to do over the weekend, before I can add some flowers and weeds, but the end of the tree planting is in sight, after making what seems like hundreds of them.

    Here are the latest photos around the freight depot.

    I removed the end-scene between the layout and the fiddle yard to get some unusual photo angles of the freight house

    I also took an 'aerial' shot to show the overall appearance of the new scenery

    I've also been working on a few smaller details and sceniced the area around the rainwater culvert and started making a 'pad' to hold a chlorine (or propane) tank - I have several chlorine tank cars but only one to carry propane at present.

    Jon, have you written any books on your modeling techniques? If not, WHY NOT??? I would definately purchase one if you decided to write one.
