2 steel narrow Gauge boxcars at the U S Potash Mine near Carlsbad, New Mexico. 


They plated them over to deter woodpeckers. 

Possibly ex-Death Valley Railroad (at least the second one). 

Though could have come from a number of narrow gauge lines,
including SP narrow gauge, SPC, NWP, or NPC.

Interesting subjects to model.

The corner of the layout where Buckensnortt Creek runs has been bugging me.

Too much junk into the background that pulls your eye away from the scene.





I installed a simple backdrop to hide all the stuff behind.

The miner's tent seems to blend into the scenery.

Making progress on the boxcar.





That's a lot of lettering doing one character at a time.

Still have the other side to do.

Okay, it's done.

Didn't do much weathering. 

Wanted it to look like it recently came out of the shop with a fresh coat of paint.

Nice build.

I went through your entire thread a couple days ago.

It's so interesting to see layouts evolve.

Unlike many people I really had no plan when I started this layout. 
It just kind of grew on its own over time.

Some of my early attempts at BPRC were disasters,
but I did learn how everything was suppose to come together.

It's been a fun and interesting adventure. 
Not sure what's next.

Sadly I am not at a point where I can even find a space for a layout.
I've had portable ones before and they end up sitting in storage.
Just gonna wait.

I am mostly building this and that for my future layout.
But I do plan to start with a basic oval and 2 switches like you did.
Just something to see 'em go roundy roundy on, and to set models on.

I find a lot of inspiration in your discussion.
It was fun reviewing all your build images.

The interchange tracks need a proper loading dock,
to move freight back and forth. 

I didn't have any scribed wood on hand,
and didn't feel like making a 45 minute trip to the hobby store. 

I did have some balsa sheets on hand so I scribed one sheet,
using some quarter-inch stock as a guide, and a finishing nail.





Here is the dock under construction. 





Best part is it didn't cost me anything!
