Layout Construction - May 2011

More Work on Denton
This month included more work in the Denton area of  the layout. Work completed included painting the ground with an earth colored paint, ballasting the tracks and adding roads with crossings.




New Buildings and Weathering
The newest structure for Denton is “Design Preservation Models Shultz’s Garage” that I purchased at the train show in January.  I added a metal roof for variety. This structure will be an automotive/farm implement repair business. Additional details like old cars and junk will be added after the scenery is completed. The stock yards received a paint job to simulate weathered wood. I tested a technique using chalk to simulate rust on one of the silos. The same technique was used on the barn.
