Almost done. Most of the heavy lifting is done, now it's just finishing and detailing the bridge and then more plants.

A little progress on the photo module

The piece of track and the old SD-45 were set up there just to show scale.

The N-Scale Layout Is Dead

I messed around with the N-Scale layout for a while but in the end I remembered all the reasons that I really prefer HO Scale. So I ripped it all out.

The primary reason that I went with N was that I really do not have the room to do a proper HO layout.

So... what I'm going to do for now is combine two of my passions, model making and photography and build a nice little HO module that I can use to stage photos on. Later I can make more modules and maybe link them all up someday and build a proper layout.

Here is the area of Cajon Pass that I am modeling for my first module.
