I am starting a new layout thread. Photobucket broke all the links to my photos making the old thread useless. My layout is in a room measuring 10'9"x20'4". This is the trackplan as it is right now.Trackplan-as-of-June-29-2017.jpgImage Enlarger

These are the latest pictures of the second level.

I will add more photos as I adjust the sizes so they can be posted here.

Thanks Greg. It took me a while to figure out how to resize the photos so they would upload here.

The foam is glued together and ready for shaping. I will get the Shurform tool and make a mess. Yippee! (not reallyWink)

Its looking great Joe.  Thanks for posting your progress.  I get to build a new layout vicariously.  You could do a great sight gag by continuing the "crack" in the land formation up into the wall of the building right above it.

That's an interesting idea, Greg. I was planning on using spakle to fill in the cracks and gaps.

I added an industrial siding to the lower left side of the trackplan.

I somehow injured my right arm and wasn't able to work on the layout for a while. My doctor said it could have happened while sleeping. He prescribed a muscle relaxer and heat and that did the trick. While not quite 100% yet the arm is much better and I did some spackling on the hill. This is how it looks right now. I probably won't be able to make much progress for the rest of the month. Our daughter-in-law and two grandkids are arriving this week and staying through next and then out daughter and two grandkids come and right after so I'll be otherwise occupied for the rest of the month.
