Oregon Joint Line N Scale

Hi everyone!  My freelanced 25' x 28' N scale layout is based on east central Oregon and is a joint Northern Pacific and Great Northern 1969 theme connecting the Pacific Northwest and California.  I'm a fair ways down the construction path so I won't start with the usual bare room or open benchwork shots but will go right to a few finished (more or less) scenes and then show what I'm currently working on.  I've had now had four operating sessions which have included some of the regulars on here (Rossford Yard, Soo, Denver Road Doug) and can handle about nine operators.

Ahh, success with uploading images!  The previous shot was Silvies Yard at the base of the 1.8% grade to the summit at Snowline.  Most heavy trains get helpers here.  Next is Canyon Reload on the forest products shortline Oregon & Northeastern.  Note the Wheels of Time Wagner Piggy Packer which has been modified into a Wagner Lumberjack.

No question that modeling Eastern Oregon means modeling basalt canyons.  Emigrant Canyon is my first attempt at modeling a rather large scenic feature and I got somewhat lucky in stumbling on a reasonable technique to simulate the basalt.  This canyon will be dwarfed by the canyon I'm currently working on...

Wyatt [SOO]  was just telling the other day that he had the pleasure of playing on your layout.
I recognized some of the photos from his emails.
Looks like an awesome layout to play on!

BTW, welcome aboard.

The Oregon & Northeastern Logger (behind newly acquired US Army VO 1000's) is heading for the mill complex at Scanlon while across the creek NP train 664 (Silvies - Pasco) drifts downgrade behind three high nose geeps.

Very nice shot; I love the scene composition with the two lines separated by the creek! I'm digging this layout thus far, good job!
