Finished the second deluxe diner today.  I had to replace the light board which I fried somehow while adding the potentiometer.  The subdued light is exactly the look I was seeking, with enough illumination to highlight the interior detail rather than lighting up the countryside, and is a subtle difference over having the lights off.  These are done.  Focus will return to the EP-3 after I host the McGrattan Memorial train sometime next month.

This week has been adventures in photography for me.  A few weeks ago I found a roll of vinyl canvas for a dirt cheap price so I turned a few feet of it into a backdrop.  The paint's still wet in the photo, and it's purposefully very blue.  I tried to go for a "Pennsylvania October afternoon" look.



I also dragged this out of the closet and did some touch up work to it.  It's just a foam sheet painted flat black to simulate a yard in pre EPA days.  I built it large so I could take "railfan" shots with it.



Next, I tried out some proof of concept photos.  I don't have a good digital camera so I borrowed one.  My cell pictures turned out better, if slightly grainier due to camera shake.   

I lighted the backdrop with a 60W bulb.  It turned out well, but I'll need more to make it look more even.



I slightly desaturated this photo.



In the future, I plan on making some hills for the background.  I also need a good camera.  I'll probably start another thread on that sometime soon.

Also got some pipe bridge and supports from @Erik aka Ngineer painted and installed today.  These are just set in the ground and are removable since I have to feed the piping into the bridge grid work.
