Town side progress

My layout seems to be a game of two halves, to borrow a metaphor from other peoples hobby. Work has mainly concentrated on the industrial town side or the right hand side of the shed. Last night I set to with some more vinyl tiles and some ballast.

Having read Octobers Railroad Modeller there is and interesting article at the back about freight yards that have roadways between every other track, so I thought that would make a nice contrast to the team track on the "other side" of the shed.

This next shot shows how the underside of the tile is pared away to clear the rail chairs

I'm not sure about the building, its recycled from a previous On30 layout on which it looked small, it may look to big / tall here?

That building looks all right to me John, I'm sure there will be different signage going on it or even a neon sign ?? reflecting the affluence of the US over the last site it was on

It looks fine to me too. I don't think I'd have realised where it came from if you hadn't said.

Buildings on models are usually too small. Stick with it!
