Hi Rod,
I thought you might enjoy a few pics from our current Colorado trip; a bit of inspiration perhaps? All taken yesterday off the gravel road over what used to be the Boreas Pass “high line”. Lovely country…

 As we are in lock down #6 its hard to get too motivated however I have completed some new scenery in my town of Gunnison.
Lots of various grades and colours of ballast material then airbrushed with AK Acrylic colours to blend and tone it all down.
Some static grass and its starting to come together.
Ways to go yet however its coming along.

As the weather starts to warm up a bit, I'll get to do more in this area.

Looks great Rod.  Looking forward to seeing more.

There's a prototype for everything.
If you can't make it perfect, make it adjustable.
DCC is not plug-n-play.

Gunnison yard is almost complete.
Some kit bashing, more scenery and trees added.
The water tank is the only item needing completion.

Scott, the T/T is a kit from the UK called Kitwood Hill Models.
Not to sure if they are still producing however.
Worth a look at as they are very well done and they supply the motor and fixtures.

I was able to attend to some additional scenery at the end of Montrose a few weeks back.
