I made a few additions to the area near the lift up section. I disguised the hinges by covering them with some clump foliage. But per CSX Al’s suggestion, I added some variety to each area so they don’t all look alike. Below are some before and after pictures.

Looks fantastic! It’s been a wile... Any more progress on this layout?

Thanks DJ. Sadly, not much to report. I started a new job recently, and I’m getting that under control. I did buy some supplies for a scratch build I hope to start soon. I’ll post updates in the near future. Thanks for asking.

Andy

Looking forward to it, congrats on the new job! 

WOW, from beginning to Now, Fantastic work, Great trackwork, great scenic details, simply Amazing.....It takes a lot of time, work, Vision, and Patience, to do what your doing, Congratulations on the progress and folks should go back to page 1 to see how really far you’ve really advanced your Model Railroad. 

I started my first scratch build. It’s the Section Shanty that was in Mineola where the Oyster Bay Branch comes off the main. I’m using Styrene for this build. The first two pictures show the end pieces cut. The third and fourth pictures show the base trim added to all of the pieces. Progress is slow, but I’m making some headway.

I had to add a heavier piece of styrene to the bottom of the trusses to straighten them. The original piece was too thin and as a result they were all bowed. I put some base molding around the whole structure to give it a finished look, but also to cover up a few goofs. In addition to that I installed the bathroom walls. I will add a simple sink and toilet with a door.

Thanks Bob, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family. Small progress, I’ve been slammed at work. I painted the roof trusses brown, and made a smokestack from tubular styrene. I also painted the roof sections a flat black. I did cut, paint and made the mortar joints for the chimney. The mortar is dry on the two pieces on the right but still drying on the two pieces on the left. Not as much progress as I would like, but it’s still something.
