I appreciate all the nice comments.  When I was looking for ideas for my scenery, I did a lot of searching on the internet and pictures of old time logging and old mills always had a lot of the debris left on the slopes along with a odd snag tree still standing.  Around the mills also had a lot of debris that was pushed aside and haphazard roads and always seemed to be very dusty.  So I am trying to recreate this in my layout.

John, what is Hangman Creek?

So in the near future, I will be adding more structure to the area that I have already built, details, clutter etc.

Steve just about half way through reading about your adventure.
I'll finish up later.


But from what I see your doing a wonderful job with this rr.

Looking spectacular, Steve!

Lots of really cool details are bringing things to life, and I think the backdrop is just great.

Cheers, Mark.

I love the scenery and detail.  But I hope the vertical curve at the top of the grade to the log unloading area works well with your equipment.

Thanks James, Mark and Jerry, the grade looks worse in the picture and that is why the logging companies used geared locomotives.

As I said before beautiful modeling, but I really like  the backdrop.  It really makes it feel like you're high up in the mountains.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and your encouraging comments.  This part of the backdrop was painted by a Cuban political refugee who paints murals in Arizona.  He did this mural in 4 hours.
