Hi there,
thanks for the comment.
Here are the pictures of the mill scene spread out on blue foam with some tracks and buildings

And this is a picture of the changes of track on the north end of the yard.To the right there will be the small off scene north end staging.More on that later
[Image: 21.10.14%2B-%2B5]

And some of the buildings of the townscene moved to this place...will be a nice scene with a good view down the road later with a lot of cars and people and details....so someday....

That´s all for the moment,more later,
Cheers,Chris

That sawmill scene is really developping itself in a realistic manner. Often, we gain a lot sacrificing a few superfluous elements.

Continue your good work.

Hi there,
thank you.I have mounted the backdrop yesterday evening and also layed down some track.The lightswitch will be covered with a small hill with trees..After 12 hours on work there is not much time in the evening for the layout but just one hour or so will give some small progress every day,only forgot to make some photos of yesterdays work...so more will come later....
Cheers,Chris

That's still more time than me! I'm lucky when I have a productive one evening per week (well, I can built structures and rolling stock at homes, but that doesn't make a layout progress very far!). Big Grin

Hi there,
with some delay I´ll post some progress on my layout.I made a change toand new arrangement to the elevator scene.First I made a drawing with Anyrail for the changes.Here´s the picture of th drawing.
[Image: Dawson%2BCreek%2BElevators.jpg]
The elevators where placed on the right side of the three benches.I think now it looks much better with more place between them and some additional structures around.Also this will catch more of the prototype look....The end of the tracks will be hidden with a roadbridge and some trees...A small downtown scene with stores,gasstation and farmequipment dealer will also be there.

[Image: RIMG0853.JPG]
[Image: RIMG0859.JPG]

Around the other curve there is the mill complex and another industrie with some structures...I´m not finished with this scene and will play with those buildings....but made some pictures of it...

[Image: RIMG0863.JPG]
[Image: RIMG0864.JPG]
[Image: 04.11.14%2B-%2B1]
So the industrie in the last picture is the one that needs some finetuning...don´t no what kind of company it will be,maybe lumber or hardware or both of it....
Next part will be mounting and wireing the track,adding a fascia and starting with some rough groundwork for scenery....more progress will follow,soon.....

Thanks for looking,any ideas and tips are very appreciated.

Cheers,Chris

Not sure how I have missed your layout, but I am glad I found it!

This seems like you have a good plan and good vision for what you are trying to accomplish.

I look forward to more of your posts!

Hi there,
Thanks for the comments.I hope to model the vision I have in mind.
I started some building on the warehouse,added a second track and played around with some pikestuff spare parts and walls etc...

I´ll do some more work on it later this evening when I get home from work.Thanks for looking.

Hi there,
as I wrote in my last post I did some work on the warehouse and added some pikestuff walls and some styrene base and finaly came up with this one....
It will recieve inbound goods by rail in boxcars.Outbound traffic will be empty boxcars...Trucks will be used for delivery....
[Image: 13.11.14%2B-%2B6]
[Image: 13.11.14%2B-%2B5]
[Image: 13.11.14%2B-%2B4]
I´ll add more windows to the grey building as it will be an office part of the complex....I´m only thinking about cutting a second opening for railtraffic to the left of the current opening and adding some length to the track in front of the loadingdock into the building....so not more tracks,only the second track is going into the building,too....
What do you think about.Any suggestions are very appreciated...

And while I was playing around with styrene I thought about working on the street scene in front...I decided to rip out that foam and go with some type of MDF board as a base....so I could lift it out and work on the workbench on the streets and structures....

[Image: 17.11.14%2B-%2B5]

There will be no sturctures in the background area between the mill complex and the warehouse,only trees and other scenery....maybe the backside of a small structure with a fence or something like that....surrounded by trees and it will be non railserved...it depends on how I will like the look through the buildings on the street scene Wink Wink Wink .

Any comments are very appreciated as always...Any tips and infos are also very welcome because I could only work von photos and not on traveling through time and space to the locations I´m modelling Wink Wink Wink

Thanks for looking,
Cheers,Chris

I really like that warehouse complex. I think you've got a great scene there.

I like the new plainer mill module Chris. What size of logs are coming into the mill, cut or full length?

Hi there,
thanks for the answers.It´s a lot of fun to build and make changes while I´m building......
Stephen, To follow the pictures I have on hand and also the google maps pictures I found it seems that there are more cut logs coming in.... but I could be wrong.....On my model I think I will also go with the cut logs ...The piles of logs going to the wall so maybe it will look much better with the shorter logs....

And I made some progress or better track changes to the warehouse and GERN Industries Limited area.Here is a drawing with Anyrail for that area
[Image: yf-4xEwaGMmGCOg8cdjYdZylIWEsVG4_bTSAipG_...15-h422-no]
After I´ve played with the current track arrangement for some time I wasn´t happy with that....so I ripped the track off and started from new....okay,I only have to pull out the tracknails....and moved the turnouts around the wood and finaly I found the way to go....
[Image: DawsonCreek%2BMill%26Warehouse1.jpg]
I added some length to the track in front of the loadingdock on the warehouse part.I have to cut the sheet for the new arrangement but that will be no problem....
[Image: 23.11.14%2B-%2B1]
To the back I´ll be add another smaller non railserved warehouse.As you could see I added the masonite for the backdrop....have to paint it some kind of blue and add some backdrope to both sides of the area...
[Image: 23.11.14%2B-%2B2]
[Image: 23.11.14%2B-%2B3]
A bigger change was done on the GERN industries complex because i added a third track for the mill building and seperated it from the to tracks for the elevator.I´ll build an open shed for the loading/unloading area for the hoppers.You could see where it will be placed in the picture below where the metal sheds are located.
[Image: 23.11.14%2B-%2B4]
The shed will be kitbashed/scratchbuild from Pikestuff parts and sheet...I´m thinking of removing the Walthers grain silo to another location and building an addon to the millbuilding from metal siding....will do a mockup from cardboard and show it here.....
So,that´s all for today.When I´m at home from work this evening I´ll finish tracklaying and will add some feeders....More will follow,soon.

Thank you for looking, any comments are very welcome.

Cheers,Chris
