  2. Hello, "LVN #151 & #149" pulling covered hoppers". This area is not yet finished, I have a lot of detailing works to do around the warehouse.
  3. Hi Wendell, Thank you for the kind words. Much appreciated. :-) It's been a while I have posted here. The layout is still alive and I'm working on several new projects. A spreader truck has been recently added on the Grain Elevator complex. This area is still in progress. Grain bins and the bucket elevator are in place but a lot of detailing work is needed. The truck is from Athearn, the spreader is scratch built. West Coast mirrors are still missing and I have to apply more weathering and some mud. This photo was taken during one o

That will be too much risk of damage on it. My purpose is to preserve this layout in perfect condition as much as possible.

  10. Hi, Over the last few days, the layout has been totally disassembled in order to do some painting works into the room. During the building phase, I have spent many hours making all parts easily removable. All those attentions have paid, all parts have been disassembled and stored in another room without damages. Since yesterday, the layout is fully operational again :

  13. Hi Barry, The trees are made from Zeeschuim (= Seafoam = "Super Trees" from SE). Trees are first painted with a dark green acrylic color. After the painting step I glue a mix of foam, leaves and grass to simulate the foliage : - Foam : Heki 1611 & 1612 - Grass : Mini Natur 2 mm "Late Summer" (http://www.sceneryexpress.com/2MM-LATE-SUMMER-STATIC-GRASS/productinfo/SF00223/) - Leaves : Polak or Noch I hope this information will be helpful to you.
