Quick post here to show progress on the CJB Robotics building.  I needed to finish this because I have to work on top of the layout to reach.  Now I plan to start on other projects that can run concurrently.  Thanks for looking.  Chris

Hard to believe this thread is over 5 years old. Just goes to show what preserverance and hard work can accomplish.

The pics below show what I have been up to.  Mainly the three sidings that will be next to a small town area.  This is not in the original plan.  However, I think this work better than cramming the entire area with track and still gives some of the same functionality.

Note that I decided to use manual throws for the turnouts here.  This was done to save as much space as possible for a road over the “main line” tracks and into the town.  Plus I figure that this will make moving cars in and out a bit more interactive.

Next I plan to weather and ballast the sidings and start the area below.  I am still trying to decide how to shape this corner and blend the terrain with the building (Carter’s Lego Factory) and the wall.

Latest update pictures attached. I have decided to focus on scenery on an empty corner of the layout. Many things were learned here! Basically, I followed the methods shown in Eric Siegel's videos. I would change a few things next time but overall I am really liking the results. The pics below show the progress. It is pretty much complete with the exception of more plant life and debris.

Next, I am planning to continue track ballasting and begin fascia installation.

Thanks for looking,
