Progress on my switch complex

Phase one is done. Got the ground cover and ballasting done. Next will be the real fun stuff.... power poles, trees, bushes/shrubberies, more trucks and cars, striping and weathering the streets, grade crossings, grade crossing protection and of course --- people.

Thanks,

Nice work and gentle weathering on the structures and composing scenes of buildings for the RR to serve.

I like the size of the industries and the ratio between the space allocated to each and the trains. Well done. Nice lighting helps too!

I agree,, the industries are spaced out,, not crammed in.

Overall,, real nice look to the whole layout. Very well done!!!

See ya,

Thank you Guys!!

Your kind comments mean a lot to me!!

I tried very hard to give each industry enough space. Glad the effect is convincing.

Best regards,
Wolf

Next will be the real fun stuff....
... not to forget, all the trackside stuff that really makes it reek of the old SP!
Off to a nice start with that Grand Junction Depot conversion.   8)

The praise of the spread out industries here, and the advice for @conrail1973 to cram stuff in, makes an amusing juxtaposition.

However, both seem appropriate. This looks great.

Very nice! Looking forward to seeing how the next layer you add with details and foliage changes it.  8)

Looks great spwolf! I think you need to add some more garden tracks to show off all of that steam! I've always loved large stream sitting outside of the roundhouse!
