Yes, it has been (once again) too long since my last update, but I do prefer to work on the layout rather then write!
After a few operating sessions both with people and by myself, I essentially took the layout out of service to start scenery on one section. After throwing some plaster around and building a bunch of trees, I’m left with a few scenes:
Extra 708 North departs the siding at Kennedy BC after meeting a southbound freight
708 North between Tacheeda and Kennedy
Essentially I scenic a section of the layout between Kennedy and Tacheeda that is roughly 4 feet by 13 feet. Here’s an overview looking north towards Kennedy:
The track curving off to the edge of the layout represents the Tumbler Ridge Line, I will add dummy catenery at a later date, as well as more trees in the foreground.
I’ll cover the scene at Kennedy in a future post, right now I’m ballasting the main into the staging yard at Tacheeda/Prince George
