My excuse is that today is a rainy day and I'm in sentimental mood. (My policy is "I don't paint the soil colour while I'm having a sentimental feeling".)

Rainy days and Mondays, eh? 🤔

Hi Mike
How are you doing?
Yes, it was Monday and was raining.
Today is Tuesday and still raining.
I got bored of being in a sentimental mood so I made street signs today.
Another one, a baby step.

One of Stop sign flew out of desk and the rescue team (my two eyes) couldn't recover it.
 :doh:

Hi Rich
That's a hard question.
It's suppose to be a just scenery between the yard and a place where connect to mainline.
I just wanted to have a little distance between them.(What a luxury! I couldn't even think about it in a closet!!)
I tried to put an engine pocket on this extension but it was too short.
I don't have a master plan as usual, I'm not sure how it turns out. :scowl:
That's where the "Low-tech-ness" strikes again.
In distant future, I'd like to run long trains but I don't even know how long is a long train for me.
Please standby until I come up with something.

Dats

The voice of an angle, it's just a shame she's not still with us today.



OK back to talking about the Closet Branch  :D

Great artist and song, Rich. Thanks

It is raining here in Canberra today. Decent rain has become a rare thing this year for us unfortunately. One of the best things that can happen is for it to pour.

Already we've had days into the 30's (Celsius that is) and it's not even summer yet. Bad news.

Re: The Closet Branch - A Low Tech Layout.

Hello?

Test fit.
Everything temporary.
I put my Low Tech backdrop.

One of those a suspicious back street that located near the railroad track in some industrial area.
You don't want to hang around there after dark. :dighole:
Back street jive. :headbang:



Hopefully I'm able to achieve LA's dusty sand feel a little more.
Connecting to the yard section would have a problem too. I need to redo the yard engine house area to match this short extension.
I made this frame by using a handsaw only and it has a slightly less depth than the yard. :scowl:
All in all, my Low-Tech-ness struck again!   :dunce: 

Dats :poop:

Hi Dats, I think you've captured the sandy LA soil look very well.  I'm still trying to figure out how this new section fits in with the rest of the Closet Branch? Does it fit between the "Connecting Track" and the 119 switch?

Cheers,
Rich S.
