    Intermodal train is getting longer. Need some more containers, and a hobo or two to glue in place...

    Some more work on the ghost town area. The ruined out shells of the old buildings are taking shape. Going to look for something to approximate N scale bricks, for piles of rubble, and small pieces of wood to burn and glue in place for the burned out floor levels... Waiting for the dremel to recharge before I do anymore shaping.

    Did some more dremel cutting on the ruins. Getting closer to what I envisioned. Bricks for rubble are on order, and still need some timbers to attach for the collapsed floors of the structures.

    My inspiration is Rhyolite Nevada. It is a ghost town just outside of Death Valley National Park. I visited Rhyolite as a child with my family camping, and later in life as an adult. I sent Dad these pictures and he said it reminded him of Rhyolite.

    I've come a long way since I joined N Scale dot Net just six months ago.

    Here's an update on my track plan. Since I do not have it layed out in any kind of software, here are pics. Starting with the right side and moving to the left. The mainline is basically a 4' by 16' dogbone.

    Town and passenger train station, warehouse, freight, and train yard. The bottom most rail line in the pic is "where the intermodal train comes from..."




    Freight yard in foreground and hobo camp in background.




    Fueling station in freight yard, spur to the oil extraction industry, and ghost town in background.




    Dry river wash with low water crossing for offroad vehicles, camp site, and road building equipment where the future dirt road will be...



    Spur to mining industry camp, and ranch spur for loading cattle and delivery of dry goods.

    Very nice work on the dry riverbed, especially the edges/banks.

    With the addition of the Amtrak Phase IV to the layout I have locked myself into a 1993+ time frame... I might just fast forward to 1996 with the UP SP merger, and add some UP Locomotives to the roster... This is also the year, 1996, when I was hopping SP and UP trains from Eugene Oregon down to Oakland CA, and back up to Portland.

    UP Armour Yellow is what you want.
