Gee Willikers, John!

Looks fantastic.  I think this would be my favourite of all of George's kits, but I am at a point now where I have hardly any room left on Tellynott which isn't spoken for.  Financially this is a good thing!  I'll just have to enjoy it vicariously - so thanks!

Cheers, Mark.

Thank you for the encouraging words and for following along on my journey.  I hope some day you can find a way to get back to the States and visit the S&S RR.

Great build John. I'm always impressed with your beautiful structure builds. They look so realistic.

I hope so too, John.

We had planned to visit last year but the world had other ideas.  We spent our holiday money on the garden instead.

Cheers, Mark.

John beautiful work.  Nice placement that is going to be one beautiful scene when finished.

Thank you, I'm looking forward to adding the scenery around the Eagles Nest Yard and finishing that area up. I have two more large builds and a few smaller shed type builds to complete and then I will be in scenery mode for awhile.

Thank you for the encouraging comments. This area has turned into a row of FSM kits. Each of them add something to the scene.

Update:  For a change of pace I have been spending a few hours a day working on scenery. The structure build pace has slowed down a bit but I'm enjoying the scenery work. Pictures when I get far enough along.

I deviated from my build list, today,  to do a quick build of the F&SM Peter Lynch & Sons building.  I have a spot picked out for it in the Eagles Nest Yard area. I will have some pictures in a couple of days when I have something to show. It was one of those - I started doing the scenery and said I need something here - looked in the stash and started building it. Some times you just need to go where it takes you.

John, Is that the meat packing company in the corner of the layout that wasn't offered as a yellow box kit?

No - here is a snapshot of the sheet that comes with the kit from KC.
