The shot of the southern hopper is damn near indistinguishable from a 1:1 shot

Discovered an added plus on my aluminum foil roof technique....I overdid the weathering and it bothered me every time I looked at it. I added a new sheet of foil right over it using the same method. Good as new. No photo required.

as time passed and the overall scene developed, the feed mill (on page 6) started to not look right. it over powered the other building (general store is across the road).
so I took it off the layout and started another one....

No photo necessary, after seeing another item on the Allagash I revisited my car weights. Mike C overweight his cars. I was using NMRA standard but raised it to 1 ounce per inch of length. A 40 foot car is 5.8 oz, a 50 footer 7.1 oz. Result is a noticeable improvement. I use buckshot in hoppers and pennies in boxcars.

Gathered more raw materials for dead trees, this will make about 2 dozen

What a fantastic Layout!  Just scanned all 19 pages.  I will soon go back and read all the info so I don't ask questions that have already been answered.
Very impressive.

Stockpiling trees....will keep churning them out, when it gets warmer I can spray paint in the garage. Then I can move on to the next section of scenery
