      So very true, Bruce...

      Don't know what happened to the pictures, the preview showed them upright..

      It's a "well known" "poster problem".

    • Here are the latest updates for the alleyways in the Industrial Area:

      Along with the alleyway in the below picture is the start of roof details.

      Again roof details are penciled in along with the freight cars in the alleyway.  The white all is covered with an actual structure

      on the layout..   It was removed to be able to work on the wall painting..

       

       

      And that's the latest update for now...

    • Nicely done, Andy.   Hope we can get to see it in October!

    • Jon and Ric, my desire for the Industrial area was to show it as a much larger complex.. 

      I didn't want to spend a bunch of her time doing all kinds of scenery between and behind the buildings..

      By designating one track thru my industrial area as a mainline, that gives the way for working freight to

      access the second set of tracks behind..  At least that's the way I have it figured in my mind.. 

      And trust me, my mind is a very scary place.....

    • Really nicely done. The second layer (background) is an idea I've rarely seen done and it really adds depth / realism.  I can get lost in the canal painting on the door. AWESOME!!!

      Great work and detail!  Looked at them earlier, but wanted to get on the confuser to really see the detail.  The idea of other railroad cars between the buildings is great industrial depth!

       

      Thanks for sharing.

       

       

       

       

       

      Speaking of the confuser to really see the detail?

    • you can call yourself really lucky, that you found such a talented artist.

    • Still don't understand how Amtrak fit's into that scheme? Perhaps you need to sell it !

    • It's been a while since we were able to have an update to the wall painting progress..

      Fortunately, my painter has returned and completed some more work on the wall..

      these will be progressive shots starting at the edge of town and moving to the Industrial

      Park area..

       

      Basically, the below 2 pictures have had more details added..

       

       

      Starting just behind the boxcar, is an added building in the background..

       

      Further down the wall are more industries behind..  Those industries are also serviced by rail as will be shown by looking thru the

      alleyway..  This alleyway has a pencil drawing taped to the wall as a guide..

       

      Looking at the next alleyway, you can see the boxcars on the tracks between industries..

       

      Further along will be another alleyway.

       

      The white factory at the end is not finished yet...  What is planned is a 2 or 3 story higher building with 2 freight tracks that

      will be serviced under those levels..  The Cotton Belt boxcar is actually sitting on the mainline thru the industrial area..

      It was moved there so she could work on painting the wall..

      It is nice to see the painting being done again..

      And that's the latest update as of now....

      More to follow...

      This might add something to it, as soon as I get the scene out of the kitchen and integrated into the layout!

       

       

      Eric, I found the "embed" option at OneDrive asked me for my login. That suggests sometimes it won't display if you aren't logged in as me? And other hosting sites can be very tricky. Photbucket decided to charge $400/yr, I think, for the option to link a photo to another website.

       

      Instead, I did a right-click on the pic and then "copy image location". Then paste that location into the LSC Image box and here you are.

    • Paulmac,

       

      I've had good luck using the following:

      1. Put the image in a cloud-based storage site.  I use OneDrive.
      2.  OneDrive has an "embed image" function.  This mystically, magically creates a web address you can copy and paste to stuff.
      3.  Come back to your post here.  Click on the Insert/Edit Image icon.
      4.  Paste in the mystically, magically created web address!

      I am sure other file hosting sites work in a similar fashion.

       

      Aloha.

      Eric
