Very nice indeed. You could always say the ants are beavers swimming or prehistoric creatures!

Hello folks. Time for an update on my layout, Deadwood. Progress has been happening though not as fast as I would like. I’m envious of others on this forum who seem to be able to make leaps and bounds while I seem to be wallowing in a bog. The stuff that should take a lot of time doesn’t, whereas the stuff that ought to be simple and straightforward does. The following is a revisit of my layout plan. Basically, I have managed to get most of the scenery sorted out all the way from the bottom left to halfway along the top. Most of the left is scenery – trees, rocks, hills etc., but the right hand side will be a town and industrial setting so quite different from what I’ve been working on so far.
 
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Work still remaining on the left includes the application of some more bushes and undergrowth as well as the addition of a few details such as Canada geese on the lake and deer in the woods. Might add some more trees, but the part of Canada that I think I’m trying to model is not heavily forested unlike the west coast. Some young people have decided to moon the train about to pass after having driven up in a ’58 Chevy hardtop. 

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Here are some photos of the left hand side of my layout showing progress.

The other side looks slightly less neat.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

The last few days has been cause for celebration though as I now have all my bridges in place and am able to run trains around my whole layout at long last. It has taken me longer to get this far than it took the builders of the CPR 150 years ago to build the line across Canada! The following is a photo of a train passing the ‘rubbish’ on the right hand side of my layout.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
 
Another milestone accomplished recently is that I have finally started to construct a building kit. I’m starting with a fallen barn by LaserArt. Here it is so far, but it is still missing its collapsed roof. Wonderful kit.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

The barn will be a part of a farm scene in the middle of the top side of the layout to the left of my yet-to-be-built refinery. Many decades ago the farm ran beef cattle (hence the barn), but in recent years the farm has switched to growing corn (or what those in the UK would call maize). The completion of the farm scene is my next task.

Finally, for everyone’s amusement I present some clips of trains running. The first is of a CPR freight train headed by a FP7 and GP7 in the maroon and grey colour scheme of Canadian Pacific in the 50s and 60s.

The next is of a mixed freight pulled by a pair of ES44ACs in the modern era.

http://youtu.be/Ki7nz29gvko

And finally, I’m going to invoke rule 1 big time with my A4 ‘Commonwealth of Australia’ hauling a 9 coach train past my FP7 and GP7. The eras match even if the locations don’t.

Great work and great videos, Webbo! I'm particularly impressed with your neat fascias at the layout's edges.

The scenic work is also impressive. Looking forward to future progress!  :thumbsup:

I am hugely impressed with what you've achieved so far, Webbo. The scenic work is a delight (as is the vid of the A4) so never mind how long it's taken - the end result is very much worth it.

Wow! Superb layout Webbo! Wonderful scenic work.
The room is lit so well too. It really makes the layout loo fantastic.
