Finally another update to dad’s layout. I built a mountain with a tunnel on his layout, here are a few photos to show the progress of it. The portals on the 2 ends still need to be completed and of course the trees and shrubs still need to be done as well.
Now that the rock castings have been installed it’s now time to build the concrete retaining wall that will cover the rest of the foam. Follow along as I scratch build the wall.
The foam work is done now it’s time to add the rock castings. If you are interested in seeing a video on how I made the castings I put a link to it below.

Now it’s time to get this project going! In this part I’ll start by getting the foam base installed.
This is the first in a series on doing the scenery and installing the train station into train yard scene. I thought I would start with an overview of what’s getting done in this series.
Lets take a look at how the turntable operates with the roundhouse and the rest of the yard. This will be the last part in this series now that everything is working. Now it’s time to move on to the scenery work in another series.
Filling in the gaps, Lets look at how to fill the gaps made by removing the ties when the track was laid down.
After some consideration and looking over my own videos I decided to do a video on feeder wires after all.
I took a break from building this train yard to get the roundhouse done. Now that it’s done it’s time to get back to the yard.
