Backdrop and base scenery

I haven't been able to work on the layout for a few weeks until this weekend.  I spent a bit of time putting up some more of the blue painted hardboard backdrop.  

I spent some time getting a base layer of paint and ground foam down as well.  I have a few totes of trees all made up ready to go and plenty of static grass for the areas without tree cover.


  1. Nice layout Calvin! Where are you located?

  2. Lots of progress. Looks good- stay warm!

  3. Found your site from a post in the Model Railroad forum. I am a novice model rr fan (emphasis on novice) from Maine (Lewiston) building my first ever layout. I don't have a specific setup in mind beyond a generic wood products industry and BAR and Maine Central from the late 60's/early 70s as the railroad. I'm simply glad to see there's someone else out there with an interest that matches mine. I'll be a subscriber!
