Tenement, Black Pavement, and more

There was no major progress this past week since we decided to operate on Sunday evening instead of work on my layout. It was nice to have a change of pace.

So, here’s the Stevenville side of the layout. Almost all of the white plaster and blue foam has been hidden under a coat of paint. This sure looks a whole lot better than it did before!

As you can see I managed to get some more work done on the tenement building. Platforms have been added at each door and a metal roof added over them. Some basic weathering has also been done. You’d think the owner would want to replace the broken siding. You can also see one of my other scratchbuilt cardstock buildings in the background – Picard Packers.

Front Street is now basic black. I need to tone it down some to get it to look more like aged asphalt, then add center lines, parking space lines, manhole covers, cracks, repairs, …. There’s still lots to do here!

Here are some shots of Dickie Clothing Company and GM Metals. More details will be added over time.

I may have mentioned the little diorama (64 sq. in.) that I did a year or two ago. Well, here are some close ups of it. I call it “Still Life”. Can you figure out why?

So, that’s it for this week. I think I’ll be spending the weekend making changes to the track arrangement in Chappellton to incorporate a rail barge/ferry. This is the result of a layout visit this past week – thanks Alan!!!!

Until next week,
