Bill still needs to plant some bushes and trees to go along with his urban re-development plan. Figures the added shrubbery will increase his investment property by 50%!!

Next up will be John Brandt to enhance the barren areas with his artistry!

Work has been halted temporarily for the past week due to a Disney vacation in Orlando. Sitting at the station is their Mickey Mouse Express train that stopped running indefinitely while they build a new roller coaster next to Space Mountain. The tracks need to be re-routed there, hence the train is parked at the station on display. B99AE708-269A-4BE6-A02E-06C54E299BBEDC96E5CB-3060-4B1E-919C-0E03AC05233D

Hello Guys,

Now that I am back from my leave of absence, work can begin again on the remaining sections of the O Gauge Layout's mural.

For starters, there was an area on the South end of the layout where a tunnel portal was going to go.  This tunnel would have a road coming to the town above the lower level right where the cemetery is going.

However, this tunnel, if installed, would offset the perspective of the distance between that and the trees and mountain in the background seen in the mural.

In other words,.................IT WOULDN'T LOOK RIGHT!!!

So,......I came up with a resolve for this.  I painted a road going into the woodlands on the mural having it curve to the left, and then paint trees to show the path.  I made sure to match the road's color to the roadbed placed by Budd.  The results were good, and the president and vice president plus others agreed.

More to come!!!

I was there in the early am working on the rear part of the building cleaning out and realigning the drainage downspouts so water will stay away from the building and not come into the basement. 2 more to go, then finished. Helping out the museum folks on this project.

Next up, we will be back wiring up all the lighting and buildings. Have done some but summer kicked in. Now that summer is almost behind us, we will resume wiring operations under the careful eye of the nutty professor Mr. Bud. Lol!
