I changed out the hill in the corner. I used pink form, and carved the “rock”. I stacked them on 1/4 plywood, so I could work on it outside. It’s screwed from the underside, and the transformation took under a hour to install. A real benefit to adding scenery to the rock bluff outside..still bushes and some extra scenery to add to this scene...cheers

After procrastinating for so long, I finally added some yellow road lines. This will also be a secondary location for the police car (at the “7-11”)..cheers

No, the railway was “perfect” in the sense that it ran very well. It’s just time for a change. The layout taught me want I want in a layout, in the sense that I’m more into seeing a train run through scenery, and less into operations/yard switching. I enjoy running classic passenger consists. I also want to be able to change out the layout as my interests change over time. This layout required a weekend of fixing drywall and painting.

Love the colour....I chose the green as I wanted the bridge to ”pop” out in the scene....

Reconstruction has started.....the front 16 inches are made to switch out in the future ( the closest panel is off set to show the panel. The open area will be for a river and bridge. This will give me the opportunity to change the layout every 18 months or so, without major construction. It’s being built so that the layout could be transformed in a hour. The rear panel will stay fixed, but changing out the staging area is fairly easy (If I want to, as I plan on changing out between HO scale and N scale. There is good room on the sides for modelling, and staging maintenance. Next project is the scenic divider. That to is going to be built to be interchangeable. It will be able to be painted In my garage, and installed on the layout (which is the area beside this room). One item that I wanted to eliminate was the duck under from the BN layout, and this layout height is about 38” inches, and is comfortable to view from a chair. I’ll going to start a new discussion this week, so you can keep track of the progress...cheers
