This layout is out of this world not only because its B&O 8) but also the terrain is carved out perfectly with all the variations in land height, it is perfectly convincing great job keep the pics coming.

This shot reminds me of the happy times I spent fanning Sand Patch.  Really nice.

Totally agree - it looks like the track was laid into existing landforms - not the other way around.  Well done!

I would be really interested to know how the trees are put together.. What products were used and what method??

I model the D&H in the Lake Champlin area and have a shed load of trees to make..

Any info would be appreciated.

I used woodland scenics poly fiber until I found black poly fiber on sale after Halloween a couple years ago, I like the look of it under the woodland scenics course turf, medium green and dark green. The trees in the foreground have weeds for branch structure. The trees in the back are just puff balls.

Chirs,
Thanks for reminding me I need to drive out and see the progress in person. Looks fantastic! I'll be up Friday the 28th.

I love how you have snaked the double track. The ballast work and detail are outstanding. Keep posting photos.

My layout was designed as a run through, with the only operations being helpers and kingwood. Now that I'm getting more into operation, I'm adding the whitetail mine with a lift out section.
