      Very nice!!  When you are out shooting pictures of trains, from this angle

      Just shift right a few inches to loose the fence post behind the tall building and zoom in or crop and the fence wire will disappear into the background unless studied. I need to finish my flats for the indoor. Too many projects, not enough mojo.

      I'm trying to get a handle on where these are located. Are these buildings located along that long siding that leads to that shed that's behind you in that picture? 

      Are any of those going to become industries along that siding? And are you going to extend that row of buildings further down? Just curious. 

      BTW, how are the fires out there? Haven't heard of any more bad news concerning them.

      Hi Ken,

      Yes that is the location.  Non of these will be rail served industries but just support buildings so to speak.  Just past the white building will be the Hyampom Depot past that will be either a stock yard or fuel depot, All of these would be rail served of course.

       

      The main two fires are now one and cover about 150K acres and still going, still moving away from us, thankfully, and the smoke drift has been to the West the last few days so the air has been pretty good for us on the East side.  So far still no structure loss from this one.  Ironically a brush fire broke out Sunday night 3 miles north of us at the Interstate, burned 200 acres destroyed 11 structures including 2 homes and a bunch of cars and RV's.  Thankfully this one is under control and nearly out.

      Later

      Finished the Hyampom Depot today, just in time to put it in the barn for winter.   The building is another 3-D flat, approx. 8 inches front to back,  that goes along the back edge of the tables against the fence. 

      The platform is a solid 1 X 10 pine plank, 1/4 inch plywood was used for the box with Redwood siding and trim laminated on.

       

      This is not it's final resting place, just an easy spot to take a picture.  The barrel and box, thanks Boomer, are located to cover the screw heads

      that will anchor the depot to the bench work

      Update.

      Things move along, slowly sometimes, but still move.  

      After a couple of small operating sessions and the open house it became painfully obvious that something more was needed at the Hyampom yards.

      I widened the table toward the fence and added a passing/run-a-round siding to help the flow of operations.  Also went ahead and extended the main line about 8 feet,

      in the lower foreground, to use as a tail track.  The photo makes it look short but the length between the curves is about 7-8 feet.

       

      Had some time so I added the abutments at the ends of the arch bridge.  These are made of extruded foam and just sit in/on the framing.

      No way these will help the bridge blend into the topography but I think they give it a more finished look.  The Oak leaves are about a foot deep,

      have to get back to work.

       

      Just a close up of the East abutment.

      All for now, more coming soon.

      Hyampom Update.

      I needed some service facilities to go along with the new Hyampom depot so built a couple of tanks to start with. Water and fuel tanks were a bit of a challenge

      as there is only 13 inches from track center line to the fence so they had to be some more of the 3D Flats. 

       

      The water tank is made from two coffee cans wrapped with Redwood and fence wire. 6 1/2 inches in dia. it is taller than big around, not really normal for water tanks but this fits the space.

      The whole tank diorama is about 9 inches deep. 

       

      The fuel tank for the Bunker "C" is made from 2, four inch PVC pipe couplers making it only 8 inches long, but again it fits the space.

       

      The small dioramas are mounted on plywood painted to look like concrete slabs and seem to blend into the scene pretty well.

       

      That's all for now but a big new addition is in the works.

      Can't wait. I've been stymied by the weather.
