While signal construction and adjustment has dominated recent work efforts on the Onondaga Cutoff, I am again making time between signal work to build a few kits and work on other, smaller projects on the railroad. One of those has recently been to assemble and install the fuel pad kit I had purchased years ago. After working on it here and there, the 'final' fuel pad has been installed where the wooden mock-up used to sit.
I'm happy with the look of this facility - I painted the components, and then weathered the slab, collection grates, and office after assembly. A few figures and details top off the scene. Now that this is installed, I can assemble the sand tower and finally install the full engine yard surface. There will be 'concrete' aprons around the facility itself and well-weathered ballast everywhere else.
Details make the model. On a big layout, details take time, but are worth the effort!
Dave, you should comment on some of the other details that have been popping up along your layout.ReplyDelete
