Last night I finished ballasting all the mainlines on the VM. I just glued it down a few hours ago. It feels good to finally seeing this layout getting finished. At least for the ballast! I also put in an order to Scenic Express for a some grass mats and other items. The only ballast I have left is two spurs that have no industries on them.
|Add all my switch timbers last week while waiting on the wrong ballast.|
|The turnout at Old Dominion Foods works great.|
|Virginia Central trackage is drying. Real stone ballast will always be darker when glued down.|
|The VM mainline is complete with ballast. The spur to the right will be a pulpwood loading area on the VC.|
|Another view from the Battlefield Yard area.|
|I also did some work on the Battlefield yard crew house. I used Monster Model Works concrete sheets for the parking lot, Cannot wait to add the rest of the details.|
