Les gave us a presentation on building structures (and water). He explained the differnt types of kits and buildings available, how to add lighting including room by room
lighting and how to beef up the kits to last a lifetime.
Les’ structures can be seen on many of the Green Valley modules
IN March, Mike gave us a weathering and container class
Mike gave us hints on the fine line between weathering to look like the models are dirty, and looking like they are ready for scrap. He also showed us how to create containers for those mile long intermodal trains we all complain about waiting for at crossings.
Photos of our buildings and details.
Bills town has remarkable detail, look inside the buildings!
And what is happening on the roof?
Individually cut logs on those flat cars..
Here we are loading ore in the Cleveland docks while a pair of Apache Railway Alcos roll by. Look at the detail on the handbuilt Hulett ore unloaders.

At the pond
Town at the corner, impressive with all the lights, but that grade on the right is a challenge!
The marble quarry, with the yard behind it.
