I felt like I needed a bit more space in this corner, so I added this piece.
After trying out the city of Hershey scene with the mirrors, we didn't really like the way it came out. I ripped off all the foam and went back to the barebones frame work.
A new sheet of plywood has been installed.
And a new layer of foam board. There is actually a bit of elevation difference between the closet module and the turn-back loop module on the right-hand side.
I carved out a nice, smooth slope for the double main line, and then painted and covered the area.
Here is a close-up of the space set aside for the track.
The North Ogle area is seeing some progress as well. I have covered the rest of the North Ogle area with greenery, and ballasted the track on Bears Paw Mountain. The flat space next to the track also has had some greenery applied. The other thing I did was cover the front of Bears Paw Mountain with Woodland Scenics' plaster cloth.
I built these two kits for the North Ogle yard. The one in the front is a two-stall engine house, and the one in the back is a three-stall car servicing building.
A few sturdy foam bushes will add to the scene, but more importantly, prevent derailed equipment from falling to the floor.
Just a nice photo looking up at North Ogle Pass with the scenery in place so far.
