I’m curious if that’s an old photo or did you adjust the color to look old ? Nice scene.

Awesome scenery. Hopefully mine is that successful when I get to that stage on my layout. At this point I have my benchwork built and have a double track main just laid down to test what I’m working on that week. Still coming up with a good track plan to use that I’ll be happy with

I am a mobile equipment mechanic so I go to a lot of the local mines and get to see places in them most people only see from google earth. One industry I want to do is model wedron silica in wedron il just instead of a silica mine I want it to be a coal mine due to me modeling the transition era so it will be a more appropriate industry

I take it you’re modeling a narrow gauge line?
