Update 28/01/01 HO BNSF

Just a quick update on the still unnamed Layout. Been quite busy laying areas of concrete inside and outside the main ‘Transfer Shed’ and still lots more concrete to lay. The layout will contain a lot of concrete and sand to portray a semi desert scene in Arizona. I have started to put the first coats of weathering on the ramp and other concreted areas.

All concrete will have expansion joints scribed in for realism.

I have cut the two other background buildings down to 75% relief, this has also given me two 25% relief buildings that may fit in. This gives me better space to fit in more cameo scenes between the rails and the buildings.

I have tested all spaces for potential vehicle movements and vehicle storage areas.

I have fitted the American style Hayes Bumpers to the three tracks that are outside the main shed.
