    Yes you do. There's not much available in the era you're modeling, especially in N scale. I know I hit the jackpot when it comes to vehicles.

    Did a bit of scenery and detail work this weekend. Added some more signs and vending machines to the BNSF Logistics and Performance Food Group industries.....





    I also weathered the roads around the two industries...









    Also a bit of turf/gravel applied across from what will be a BNSF building (tan building) I think.... maybe some track maintenance vehicles parked across the street with old track, ties, ballast piles etc....



    Also added some of Bob's oak trees from www.lonshadowsmodeltrees.com. Thanks again Bob, great stuff!

    Default Steve's SOCAL BNSF layout

    Three more locomotives with decoder installed this weekend and a test run with some.





    It was a hot weekend and didn't feel like doing to much else on the layout so I weathered some Railbox boxcars that looked entirely too new. Did the first coats of paint and chalks.







    Here's the before of one...

    Couple other covered hoppers I weathered and a short video of the layout. Enjoy!

    Not a bad week. Been working on the yard ends.... added a locomotive facility at one end and a car shop at the other. Track installed and feeders installed on both ends. Just needs to be wired into the main bus....













    Also added some loads to some of my flats, just need weathering now.....











    Also swapped out my first 25 cars with metal wheels (Two more 100 packs on the way), and replaced some short couplers on a few new locomotives.

    Steve,

    I have a special request. When you get a chance, I'd like to request that you make a video featuring the trains snaking thru the mountain section of your layout. In N scale, its very possible to run longer trains (than HO) in a given space, and I'd considered this trackplan in the past for the basis of an HO layout. Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work!

    Carl/Otis,

    Thanks for the feedback and comments. I'll see what I can do for that video, might take a few days to get it up as I've been out of town.

    Thanks
    Steve
