Well not an update really, just a change of pace. I made a short video of the layouts construction, and some trains in action.

And you guessed it!

More foam! This time I am trying some expandable foam to fill in the shapes. Now to shave it to a shape I like and plaster away.

And a little more foam.....

Glued some more foam down for carving, laid some ballast in the portals the other night as well. Should be able to start carving out the portals tomorrow.

1:1 Scale

Well, I decided to dust off the camera on Easter Sunday and head to the tracks. What an insane day, 20+ trains and some things I have never seen done before. These two trains are both moving, following each other after a eastbound cleared the bridge at Natress.
Then the VIA unit did it's impression of a Steam Engine while going through Portage La Prairie.
Once that train passed we caught a few more on CP and one on CN. Not a bad day at all.

How to kill 10+ hours on the internet

Take an intercative, real time train ride through norway. The first one is 10 hours long through some amazing scenery. The second is interactive in that you can pick which season you travel in, and you can follow along on the map below. Or view all 4 seasons at the same time. This was posted to one of the forums I frequent. The sites are not in English, so you will have to navigate around.
