This completes the Beach Farms Build. I hope you still love pictures.  Tomorrow, I'm back on the Tucker & Cook build for the challenge.

Love the pictures John , I particularly like the ones with the blue car showing through the doors .   Only one small thing I think you still need to do , weather the tractors, unless they are all brand new . For the rest , I think this is one of the best rural scenes on a model railroad I have ever seen.
I love photo's, don't we all.

Thank you for the kind words. The tractors did get a coating of dirt but it's only showing up on the horizontal surfaces.  I will hit them again and concentrate on the vertical services that show up in the pictures. Thank you for following along and your comments.

Spellbinding. There’s shades of John Allen in your terrain. I love it.

Very well done, John.

That is truly spectacular...I keep finding new details - a peacock?


Great work, majestic vistas but infinite close up detail too. Good as it gets, IMO.

Thank you for the encouraging words.  It was reading the book on John Allen's life as model railroader that got me started on this layout many years ago - so the mountain terrain is inspired by him.

For those that like the chicken coop area, here are a few closeup pictures showing some of the details.  This area is right at eye level and close to your nose when you are looking at the layout so I gave it a few more details. Those of you that have lived or worked on a farm will notice that we captured the reality of life near the chicken coop.

Awesome pics, John!  Love the peacock and the landing bird on the implement.  Great farm scene.

You had to position that chopping block for all those poor birds to watch on? What a cruel maker you are!
