Almost there

Even if the ground got the same color as yesterday the building made a change to the better. I like the combination with red and green that "The Q" used. Next step now is to make the middle section ready for the building.

Change is a popular word in some countries. And on Crawford too. Instead of a Santa Fe inspired Walthers kit there going to bee a scratchbuilt smaller structure as depot. The appearence are borrowed from a drawing in an old "Model Railroader".

With brown primer it looks like chocolate but it´s going to be "indian red" and "oxide green" instead.

Roofs and windows

This weekends small works. The storage shed and "Jensen Motor" got roofs and windows.

A closer look, to close? Who stole the stairs ;)

"Jensen Motor" still missing one window thats going to be replaced by a sheet of plywood or something similar.

The houses and other things on their right locations just to test the feeling.

Two small houses and a freight shed standing on the workbench. The buildings are scratchbuilt with "Evergreen" Clapboardsiding as walls and are now waiting on details and paint.

MoW on the run!

The Maintenance of Way Section have done some work with ballasting the track. Still some adjustment to do but now it´s beginning to look like a railroad.

Some more progress

Today it was time for the "bad machine", the homebuilt grassmaster to have some action. First the village side

And the side of the storage shed. It still need some more paint with som texture.

And a wiew along the track.

At the same time the dirt road that crosses the rail on the "South End" got guardrails and a layer of putty. (or is it some local snow)

An owerwiew from south to north of the "Mini-Crawford"

And in the opposite direction.

Still a lot of work to do but now we see the end (?). Hopefully it will go public on in March this year.

Happy New Year!

A good new year so far. The "North End"-module got som paint on the sides and the surface got some basic paint in preparation for the grass. The mainline got som gray paint to even if its hard to see.

The place for the storage shed got some putty and another layer of cork to level the railroad cars with the trucks.

A wiew of the future railroad crossing
