    Nice - sends a shiver up my body just thinking about standing on the hillside to capture this photo (it is that realistic). Great job, Mark!

    Great shot of the snowshed. I had to look twice on that.


    Non-runners I rebuilt this week. Don't be thrown by the Bachmann GP40 bodies. The frames are Atlas.

    Thank you for the kind compliments.

    The snow is primarily sifted Lightweight hydrocal with a few coats of dillute gesso to whiten it up. There is more specialized stuff in a few places but I pretty much follow Mike Danneman's well documented techniques.

    At this time of year, the late afternoon sun can shine in the door to the layout, falling across the roundhouse area

    Good grief, has it really been a month since my last update?


    A couple of weeks ago I managed to get most of the hard to reach brewery tracks installed on the helix cap. I also completed the turnaround loop and mains behind the brewery.

    Last night I hoisted the sucker back up onto its supports and continued laying track. The westbound track gang has pushed past the Idaho Springs crossover and is approaching the Idaho Springs team track.

    The upper level is devilishly close to being operable as a dogbone. Unfortunately, I do have to sleep, so it's off to bed for now.
