Challenge #5 - CCGC Maintenance Crossing

I’m going to use my same NGRM Online entry here, so if I botch the completion timing over there, I’ll still have a fighting chance here. But, since I did start this before Lee made it official I’ll subtract time from my TRW deadline accordingly if I don’t manage to meet the much earlier NGRM-Online deadline.

This is an 8” x 4’ module for my Cedar Creek Gravel Company On30 layout that also doubles as a photo plank.

Other than the striking curvature of the track, this module will feature typical southern NJ scrubland that is typically surrounding gravel pits. The scene will also incorporate a dirt crossing for maintenance vehicles to reach the pit, and either a small equipment repair building or company office.

As of today, trackwork is nearly complete with only two rails left to be laid, and of course a whole lot of spikes still needing to be put in.

The first image is for reference of my initial starting point.
The second image is of my progress as of today.
