Acadia hasn't been photographed in a while. So I added some vehicles and here you are.

Bucksport is done

Some final pictures of the work in Bucksport. I used to think I had a lot of vehicles, but they are getting absorbed fast. Super detailing will come later.

Working on Searsport

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.

Time to start Searsport

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.

Bucksport nearly done

Bucksport is almost done. Just touching up a few details near the front edge of the layout. Then I'll have to start the cleanup.

Building work

Session is over, time to get back to scenery. I spread a lot of goop in Bucksport and Searsport. While that was drying I went back to some under construction buildings. 

The brick one is part of an old building, with an addition to hide a hole in the wall. 

The grey building was partially completed and needed much more panting of the parts. Now that that is done I'll get that one completed soon.

Helix Hill

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.

Scenery in Progress

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.

Commuter Service Commencing

RDC's purchased from the Boston & Maine were recently seen on a test run over the system in anticipation of the staring of commuter service.

Time to scenic Bucksport

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.
