You can see that we now have 6 modified I1's completed. One is in the paint line. 2 more to go.
All I need to do now is to wire all this and then add structures and ballast. It is beginning to look like an engine terminal though. One thing I need to do is decide where I am going to put that last sand tower. The tracks are too tight for it to go between them so that is why it is at the throat of the area.

So, back to the panels and start disconnecting wires until I have eliminated the short. Then I will be able to solve it, once it is located. This is why things take time!

As you can see, the distant view looks like trees on a hill side - so that works. The problem is that there is no room for anything significant in front of the backdrop. The track is just about 5 inches from the wall. So, I had planned a road to be there but I am going to have to find some building photos for a small town. I will paste them to the wall as building fronts. I will also add some trees to go into the space behind the station and the other building. I will have to go out and find weeds to make trees out of. I have plenty of weeds around here but I need something like Goldenrod. I am also going to spray the top of the hill with a white to blend it more into the blue and make it look further away.
