    Could be a bit of bush on the opposite side of the river from the camp. The occasional oak, scrub brush and junior pine that wasn't trampled by equipment on the barren hills.

    Scatter a few stumps and a bit of logging slash in the vicinity of the camp?

    Good ideas! I finally pulled the tape off the spur track to find i have plaster to trim and paint. Track needs a major cleaning! I am taking a break right now. Hands are giving me trouble so i have stopped working on things again. I also need some things for one of my engines and sending another in for repairs. My only Bachmann is in the shop for repairs again. My atlas engines are working perfect. The Bli engines are being refitted with new dcc chipsets from Digitrax. one is being refitted and the other is sitting to see how the one engine will do. If that Blu unit works good, i will do the other one. That gives me a total roster of 6 engines. Two rs-2, two NW-2, One S2 and one 44 toner. Thats way more than i really need. I am not into buying a bunch of engines to let them sit on a shelf. I have overkill with the ones i have now. I can kick the scenery around as i feel like messing with it. Slowing down some right now. I got track down and rough the scenery in. I can run engines for fun. Guess thats about it for now. Laters

    I did a bit of tree work. I bought the most sticky hair spray to do the trees. They look ok. I put a few on the layout. I got more to do for scenery on the town side of the mountain. Have some of the trees done. Plenty to do before i start rebuilding the tall trees i have. They have shed some of the foliage off them. Need new glue to fix them. Shots below

    Started working on repairing the old trees from the old layout. I can add more of the 2 inch trees if i want. Right now am getting more of different kinds old old trees repaired so i can place on the new layout. Shots of the fun below. The trees shown on the desk are all older trees. I have repaired them and will be placing them on the layout and then will see how many more of the 2 inch trees i want for that side of the layout.

    I think he means some that aren’t evergreens, not that any trees lack enough leaves.

    hehe. I am pretty much done with trees for now. I got out all i need and am going to be working on stumps and bark in that area. Have the bridge finished and ready for the pour of the river. It won't move this time. I also like the looks of this bridge better than the other one that was there. Shots below. I may get into stumps today or tomorrow. will post then
