Herb, the clean work spaces will be cluttered soon with various projects - it always seems to happen that way. I was doing some scenery work and made a mess, so it was time to clean out the Augean Stables!

Si, thank you for nice comments. It's a challenge trying to recreate the Colorado mountainous terrain on a shelf only 12" - 16" wide. Varying the scenery profile and sloping down towards the front of the layout shelf seems to work for many of the scenes.



This scene is 12" wide, and is basically the corner from leg of the layout to another. This is a freelanced scene on the Gilpin, James Peak & Middle Park Railway, so that's the reason for the water tank. The spur off to the left was originally part of the mainline when this modular section was a part of a different modular layout, and got recycled. I'll probably name the place Martin's Siding, in honor of a fellow narrow-minded friend, and use the spur for loading ore from off-rail mines, and for unloading supplies. The St. Louis Mine appears at the background of this photo. I need to finish up a small area of wood cribbing wall to hold back the hillside, and then this scene will be more or less done.
