Here are the small additions I've made since the last update. Nothing is really set in place yet but I'm starting to mock up the rest of this area.


I scratchbuilt this building using some of the FSM castings from RailroadKits. I showed more pictures of it on another thread.


This gives a little idea of the placement of the structure and how the rest of the area will feel. I built Scotia Supply a while ago and the little white building is from Foscale.


I built this copy of George's Bonney Wrenches from the wall section cut by KC Workshop. You can see in this shot I'm working out the idea for some water coming out of a culvert between this 2 buildings.
It will give me a chance to make a cool scene with a small wooden bridge connecting the siding to Scotia Supply.


This photo gives a better feel for how the water will flow. I started adding the stone bridge underneath the tracks in the front. I believe it's a hydrocal kit from Monroe Models.


I'm working on the area in front of Getz Gas (the foam with the FR on it). I plan on building that area mostly on the bench and dropping it in. It will have the latest SierraWest kit Mortons Foundry.


This is a shot of the same area only slightly to the right. Cartwrights is mocked up in place where it will live.


The station is also set in place. Nothing is secured yet of course. I always try to work back to front. The area behind the station will be some smaller version of Sewalls Foundry. I have all the castings but I don't intend to make it the same as the kit. Maybe just the main building and the overhead crane. If anyone has a copy of the overhead crane templates from the kit please let me know. It will make it a bit easier to figure out.


This might give a little better flow of the area. I have a whole mess of structures to add but I'm hoping it starts to come together quickly.

Thanks for following along and giving me a nudge to update this thread.

Thanks Dennis,

Here’s a link to more pictures of the structure
http://modelersforum.com/index.php?topic=5368.0

It’s a scratch build I made using some of the wall, window and door castings from Railroadkits.
The stone base is either from Sewalls Foundry or Wilfred Brambell. I mixed up both sets and used the castings.
