    Looking good Lloyd. That is going to be quite the project. I'm sure a few beers will be consumed making it!

    Lloyd: Great project and I have problems with Cornerstone Background Buildings and I'll never undertake a project on the scale as your brewery.

    Lloyd,

    Darn, that is massive AND impressive. Can understand why it will take so long to construct.

    I also started work on a tunnel. I needed to remove it so that I could finish the inside with plaster to make it look like rock. Since it's a double main line, we are able to see far inside the tunnel, therefore I ballasted all the tracks. The tunnel will be finish on top with a mountain a later date.

    Lloyd,

    Most impressive, may not take the year or two to finish after all

    Thanks Tony,

    It will...lol
    I got to get back to wiring the tracks as I've only got about 30% done on 1,100 feet of track.
    The top of the helix is not ready for the brewery.
    I've got a gorge to do and finish the two trestles.
    Blah blah blah....lol you get the picture

    The walls of the buildings are not so bad, but the roofs, silos, truck loading docks, building the beer trucks since I can't find any and lets not forget all the electronics that will animate the brewery. Here's an idea of the roof.

    Lloyd,

    Bloody hell (excuse the french) that is one complicated and detailed roof! I love building stuff but am real glad it is you building this and not me

    Have to admit that I didn't take into account all of the automation and electrical work this project is going to involve in terms of the time it will take to build. I said it before, but I'll say it again and more so now, this is a massive undertaking and one you really should be very proud of so far.

    +100......Well put Tony. I can't even imagine taking on a project like Lloyd has taken on.
