Here is a picture of the future site of the town of Sellios after the track changes. The cornerstone of the town - Bob Butts Avrams build is in position. The town will grow around it.

Thank you for stopping by the thread.  This will be the next big area that I will be working on after the Eagles Nest Yard is complete.  I'm doing a lot of design work on my iPad to get ready. It will take a lot of structure builds to complete this town. The area on the South side of the river will be called VanGelder and on the North Side is Sellios.

I took some pictures for a future project and thought I would share them.  This is the Isaac's Mountain area of the layout.  The background mountains are in and I just rerouted the mainline through the area.  I'm working on some design sketches for the area when I'm traveling and a clay mockup of the area is planned to confirm the design. This will be a waterfront scene with the town "think Franklin" on the mountain side.

Imagine a light house on the point, a shipyard, and structures with a switchback road up the mountainside. The highest level plateau has a narrow gauge line running through it. You can see a trestle that is installed on the far right of the first picture. It will be a couple years before we see construction in this area.
