Layout Update

It has been some time since I’ve posted about my train layout progress. I haven’t been idle but there was a trip to England that drew my attention away for a bit. Anyway I’m moving along and hope to have more to show a couple of weeks. The base level sub roadbed and scenery are almost complete. It needs to be painted then I will snap a few photos. I’ve made some changes to the design. I’m now incorporating Canadian Pacific operations in Goderich as well as CN. This should make the whole thing even more interesting.

I’ve been working on the planning of structures as well. I’ve just finished a water tower which is similar to the Goderich tower. The CN and CP stations are proving a challenge but I have an idea to recreated them. That will require a trip to Goderich which I don’t plan on taking until the spring.

In the meantime here’s some photos showing my water tower and some locomotives. The water tower still needs the town name applied, the base to be painted like concrete plus overall weathering but I’m pleased so far.
