Nice work.:thumbsup:
Tell me, did you add the trees and grass in the foreground with some kind of paint program?

This picture here,
Desktop Screenshot 2020.02.12 - 22.14.28.47.jpg

Notice the trees shadows, the one by the storage tank does not match the other trees shadows.
Unless there are 2 suns. :)

Edit,
looking again there might be another tree I can't see?
But they still look like they have been added with some kind of paint program?

Actually this is all a software program, the layout is made using Trainz TANE Edititon, layout and trains all made from a pc. really good software. Basically I created a virtual model railroad, works exactly like the real thing but a pc simulation. Extremely detailed.

The next set of pix are of one of the main industries on the layout. A Cargill food processing facility with a corn syrup loading area.

Covered hoppers unload grain/feed etc.. in the shed while finished product ships out via box car. 2 Ingredion grain elevators and 1 Agway elevator supply the Cargill plant.
Corn syrup is also a byproduct that is used mainly by the Tropicana Plant.

As you can see in the first 2 pix, the hatches on the covered hoppers can be left in an open or closed position. The CSX AC4400CW also has multiple compartments and doors that can open and close as well as sun visors and MU hoses that can be raised or lowered.
