Pulled my B30-7 East Penn locomotive out. Atlas Gold Line one. Pictures are foggy from camera being inside 68 degree room then going outside to 92 degrees lol

I am adding 3" pieces to space out the track as the wye with the two turnouts puts everything too close together and it not only is uncomfortable but not good looking at all.

Been nuts with all of the work I'm getting and haven't touched anything in days. I have finished the ground work for the second module so 2 of them have foamboard attached. Started receiving my custom trees in and all round coverage has arrived so maybe this weekend I'll have some updates

Section 1 which was the first one I showed is now in the construction phase after playing with tracks plans, getting my trees in and figuring hillsides.

Here are the trees I purchased from Roger at Coastman's. He hand crafts each tree and these are his premium trees in various heights.... The backdrop will be placed behind the hillside. The foam will be covered in my version of mud. No rocks are planned at the time but may experiment some more. A little more carving will take place...
