Finished the wall next to the farmyard. From last week:
A few more shots, been refreshing the scenery:
I must say, it's not the best, but it's satisfying and relaxing, and I'm thankful
that I'm able to do it and most of all, enjoy the process.
Eventually, will get around to doing update on the layout

Have a good week, all.
Looks great John!
I bought 6 NS MTL 50ft N scale box cars on craigs list for 10.00, so i figured i'd learn to weather on them, I'm using the dry stroke method mentioned on one of Leo's 'Reality Reduced' podcasts, as well as the 'put the car down and spray paint 6 inches away' method. I've also found that I enjoy just dipping my finger in it and smudging it around fairly well.
I would be very satisfied, and happy, with what you have done, John. Nice....very nice!
Those are some nice close-up shots, biby!
A neat group of photos tonight - lots of good shots of trains but also lots of nifty layout detail shots that don't involve an actual train and are interesting all on their own.
I decoderized this Southern GP-18 this evening...I do love the TCS CN-GP decoders. I've done a few of my own hardwired decoder installs, but I think this one represents a milestone: it was my first installation that involved absolutely no cussing and no soldering iron burns to either me or the workbench!
While I was out picking up the decoder I also snagged one of the new Atlas N Magor/C&O cabooses. These are nice models!
Here is a shot of a North Little Rock bound freight about to enter the town of Ozark
Here's an eastbound freight at M&K Jct attempting to outrun an approaching storm ....
nice work one and all!
These were taken on Sunday so they count as the weekend!
