    Silver Creek has a break.
    I'm building two modules for the line. You can't have only stations, you need some line between.

    Next step will be track laying.

    Now I've covered these two modules with basic scenery. They're ready for operation. Later I will do more scenery.

    Back to my Silver Creek module. I'm working at the second segment. I have to decide where to put rock molds. Here's a first idea.

    Looking good Wolfgang. I have a friend that models 1/35n2 with stub turnouts and link and pin couplers. Now talk about fun (I use the term loosely as it applies to the couplers) during an op session. At least in that scale I can see the couplers but it is still a PITA.

    Only a few days later :

    There's still a lot to do. I have to conceal the gap between the two segments, There could be a rock slide with crib wall. And I need to finsish the river bed and details.
    But at first comes the last segment.

    More work with scenery.
    And for a break I took a flight over Silver Creek:

    After a safe landing I took a close up picture at the site of the water tower:

    Wolfgang, it is amazing how well you did the scenery. I was deeply impressed by your urbane layout but you master scenery at the same high level. Very well done

    Thank you, Reinhard.
    I think, this is only "basic scenery". There's still a lot more to do. I hope to have it better for the meeting in June in Unna.

    I participated with Silver Creek and other modules at the FREMO meeting in Daleiden.
    Here're a few pictures.

    A train approaches from the narrow gauge line to Silver Creek.

    ... and rumbles over the bridge.

    There's still a lot to do!
    Silver Creek will get a stock yard for sheep loading.

    Perhaps it's just my pereception- The windows on Silver Creek depot sure look low to the ground?

    I followed the drawing from Harry Brunk's book "Up Clear Creek on The Narrow Gauge".
