    Hi folks, I've made some more progress on my layout. Here's CP 6516 pulling a cut of cars at Parkdale Yard in Toronto. The switchstands are from Details West.


    The second pic shows some of the tank cars that are waiting on track 1.

    Nice work, as usual, Val. The building in the background has been a favourite of mine since the first time that I saw it, and almost any diesel in maroon and grey looks good. :thumb::thumb:

    Thanks folks! Wayne, I am still playing around with backdrop building positions, so that one may end up there or somewhere else.

    Ralph's for fun!

    Its great to see your layout taking shape again Val! Thanks for sharing the pics. I've always admired your backdrop artistry and your excellent structures. Great looking scene!

    Good pictures. I too like your backdrop (reminds me that I should do mine) and your canadian tank cars.

    Thanks Ralph and Glen.

    Ralph, the backdrop was very easy to do following Gavin Miller's cloud tutorial here:

    If anyone wants to get nice summer-y looking clouds, I highly reccommend Gavin's stencil method. It's easy and very effective!

    Great shot of the yard, I need to pick up some of those cool switch stands you have there!
