midyard_14

The addition of a new Mid Yard Logging engine repair building along with a mainline water tower and coal facility.

A major project was undertaken. Removal of the metal fascia around the layout. Painting of the ceiling and adding LED lighting along with the ceiling soffits. The back side wall was cut thru for an addition into another room for layout expansion.  This removed the bookshelf Logging layout from the walls of the main layout area, opening it up for better viewing and operation.

Changing the scenery at the curve cut to match the rest of the canyon walls and adding new buildings and lighting to the Elson Mine.

Breaking the back wall out and moving the logging layout to the rear.  Now a place for the Sawmill. A WYE for the logging layout and a station stop for the main line with added sidings and passing track.

My Model Railroad “friends” talked me into building a new addition to the layout.  Of course at MY expense this is what ensued.  A 12’x12’ addition for a staging yard and wye.  Plus new sidings for the long awaited and much needed Quarry for Coal  and Gravel.
