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.
