More progress. The track-beds are built and it's starting to look good. Cork underlay and track to go, then it'll be time for scenery....  :D

Very impressive work! Wish I had the know-how and set-up to produce something like this. I can hardly bear to look at my botched baseboard now. :-[

Started on another bridge today. This one is a road under bridge on one of the scenic board. Hope to have it clad and painted over the weekend. Once installed I can get track laid over it.

Looks really good.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
