My apologies to everywhere for the lack of updates recently.  There is a minor issue with heat in the layout room and it has been far too cold to do any work.  I am hoping to have it sorted out soon so that I can get back to work.  Thanks.

I haven't worked on the layout much as I have been spending most of my spare time on a R/C project.
But I did open up the storage boxes that have all of the town buildings and test fit a few combinations.  I keep putting off cutting the roadway for the crossing because I am afraid of messing up.  I need to just jump in and do it or it will never get done.

More scenery, a siding, and the start of a street

Worked on a bit more base scenery and some static grass.
One of these days, I will get that ceiling fixed, I swear.  I started laying out the street and sidewalks for the town.  Don't mind the fingerprints, this stuff has been in storage all summer.

I scenicked the area around a transformer manufacturer and decided to go ahead and ballast the track while I was there.  I buried most of this siding in the dirt and will be making it look very poorly maintained.  The glue is still wet in this picture.  I will get a dry shot soon.

Worked up a bit more scenery today.  Some static grass and a few trees.
I also started work on the town area by laying some foam base for the roads and structures.  I have some Walthers street system from the last layout that I will be re-using here.
