Starting on the north end of Searsport and working on hiding the hole in the wall. When everything else dries I have some trees to plant that will help hide it. I think the backdrop is doing a pretty good job so far.
I thought I would get a start on Searsport and I made a big mess. Then I realized how many available days I had left before the next Op Session. Not a good move on my part. I will be extra busy getting everything tidied back up.
Finally got around to scenery on the small part of the helix that shows. I was hoping not to have to use tunnel portals, but the things I tried didn't work. Things are drying now, so I'll test this section out later.
The Bucksport city planners have made up their minds for the city improvement project and things are underway. The first section is on the south side and we will be working north from there. New roads have been planned and started. We even got a few light clouds over the city.
This area is where the trains come out of the helix for a short stretch. It was long time coming to get this project going.
The mainline and staging is done. It is time to see if I get a couple of towns with buildings and scenery before the convention.
I spent the day moving the buildings I had around to see what worked for me. I got a very rough idea of what I wanted for Bucksport and Searsport.
This is one of the buildings I had started but broke when I was careless is this one. It will go in Bucksport. The current industry is Ellsworth Supply. One of the new industries for Buskport will be renamed Huey Wire & Cable for the help that I was given by Dil Huey through out my early stages of construction. It might be this building, but I have another place that would be fine. Not sure yet.
The small section is to cover a hole in the wall where track goes. The big section was meant for the old layout, but will be used here. It is probably a little large, but it was already started.
It will get sturdier bracing to help hold it together better than the last time.
