These views show the northeast corner of my 10’-by-5’ layout. This was the last unfinished space on the layout, and just the brick building, from a kit by Itla models, was built for the corner. Then, Trainworx offered the kit for the New Haven Railroad control tower, and I had to include it on the layout, so I crammed the two buildings into the corner. The tower really doesn’t belong there, but I like both buildings.

I'm currently working on a retaining wall and wooden tunnel for the back left corner of the layout. The walls are paper prints which I've added balsa to for dimension. I have the walls and tunnel portal done and will start on the rigid foam carving for the hills next. I hope to build the whole thing on the bench and drop it onto the layout since it's a long reach and it's hard to work over the layout.

Thats a really nice version of the Olympia Tool and Die kit! Is that a plaster kit?

Mel that Tower definitely needed to be on the layout and it looks good in that corner.  I remember when you were just finishing that corner.

Bob i would have never known your retaining walls were photos if you hadn't spilled the beans.  Is that regular corrugated cardboard for backing?

Steve and Johan the details and weathering are fabulous as always.

Very nice Rich, I see a lot of candidates for Tall Buildings Tuesday populating your layout.
