As I was creating a small hill in the background, I had time to grab this short video of a Norfolk and Virginia Locomotive to run past on its first run. Dave Hikel and crew did some nice wiring and digital command work to get the engines fired up.
I used "1/32 task board" to create my concrete panels for the streets. I used tacky glue to hold down the task board. It was preprinted with 4 different shades of gray, tan and olive green spray paints. Next, I will draw on "cracks" in the concrete with a very fine sharpie marker and some chalks and vehicle oil stains added to the streets.
