I promised some photos, here they are.

This is one of the two grain elevators (yet unnamed) And I want to note that the hill will be mudded in when done; I work on it up close and returned it to proper place for pics.


This is Fairchilds Woodwork. It's my first real scratch-built N structure and pretty basic.



Some general scenery shots.




This is the beginning of "Valley Yard." I'll give a little more info below.


Firstly, the main loop is going to be changed and will parallel the yard ladder. As per the yard itself, a change or two I've already decided; the closest unpainted turnout is for the service facility break out. The supply track (which has cars spotted on it) for the service facility will come off of the break out rather than off the first yard track as currently set up. Reason being is that first track is the inbound/outbound track and I want it long and unimpeded.
There are 3 addition yard tracks beginning, and I estimate 2 more will see reality. I had planned a total of 6, but the way things go.... you know.
The inbound/outbound track and the first real yard track along side it will be identical in length. At present, with consideration for uncoupling magnet clearance, the first yard track can hold a max of 22 cars. The next track over will hold about 19 cars, the 3rd will hold 16, and so forth. So the proposed 6th yard track will have capacity for 7 cars and will likely become the caboose track.
In HO conversion, the longest yard tracks would be 13 feet long.... that's not including the yard ladder.

Oh, and one last note: The tunnel in the background will have a small hill and portal... and the closet is going to get a blue curtain to blend in with the backdrop.

Even though it's been a while, you've made some impressive progress, Paul.

The yard is looking pretty good. Can't wait to see how it, too, progresses.
