Here are a few pics to update some of the progress on dad’s layout
This is the new drop bridge I built. I wired it so the trains will only run when the bridge is up and are dead when it’s down.
We also had a little progress on the mountain and tunnel in the back corner.
Now the time has finally come to put up the walls and get this thing
looking like a building.
I finally made the last bunch of trees to complete the tunnel and mountain forest area. Here are a few pics to show the result.
Now that the backdrop is in place lets get the trees made and installed.
This is the final part in this build. We will finish up with getting the ground cover done.
Today lets add some color and get everything painted so it brings some life to the mountain side.
In this part lets get all the rock work done in front of the tunnel and tie it all to the foreground.
In this part we will finish the tunnel liner and connect it all to the mountain.
This part we will begin by installing the tunnel portals and tunnel liner.
This is the first in a series where I will be adding a tunnel and and hopefully adding a better looking forest to the mountainside.
