Scenery Progress

Over the past few weeks, we have made quite a bit of progress on preparations for actually making scenery. If you squint a bit, you can almost see what the finished layout might look like. We ought to be doing things such as detailing the roadbed, spreading ballast, and planting trees on the mountainsides in the next few months.

Getting there!

A PRR I-1 shoves uphill while a set of F7s brings merchandise east.


  1. Awesome. Mat C came by over the weekend and was impressed.
