Working on the Noch

With another Railrun coming up, I figure I better start doing something to the layout, so if there are any return operators from last year they will notice changes.

I want to incorporate scenery leftover from the old layout and laid some track down to incorporate a similar scene on the new layout. The cliff's in the back would all have to be modified so I took all the pieces I couls and strung them together. Of course, that left gaps in between the pieces that would have to be filled. Between the hydrocal and joint compound I was able to fill it in. The question will be can I blend it together to look good or am I wasting my time.
The scenery in the foreground has (had) a real good looking river that I wanted to save, but I think that over time it has seen better days and I'm not sure if I can refurbish it.

NC Railrun 2012

The BRWM has been invited to be one of the operating layouts during NC RailRun 2012, This years event will have layouts stretched from Charlotte to Raleigh. You will have a choice of the Eastern or Western section to reduce drive time, or you can opt to pick from both sections, which will increase your drive times. I will be scheduled with the western Group.
The BRWM is currently slotted for Operations on Friday, October 5, 2012, from 4 PM until 8 PM.
