Excellent job. What was your technique for the clouds? I made a couple feeble attempts at clouds, and figured out I may never have the knack for it. Yours look very nice!

Hi guys thanks very much , unfortunately I carnt bend the backdrop due to how they are held in place . However I feel a few trees should hide the corner. I was very happy today as my Maine central gp7 arrived from New Hampshire

Well what do you all think ? , the large tube is going to become a grain silo or something. Also the coal hopper isn’t finished yet .

Also a present of Santa this year is a Kato f7 freight sent , would a single a unit be able to run in reverse or would it have to visit a wye or turntable?

This was the problem with the "Cab" units, unless there were 2, which could be run with one reversed. So, yes, for anything but a short switching move, being able to turn one to face the other way, will require one or the other. Now if you were modelling Australia's NSW railways, you could have had a "Class 44" that had a drivers cab built in to the rear of the loco.
