What a nice surprise with the calendar, well deserved!

I'm still pondering where the Army unit sign will go but I think this works. Really, the sign should face completely away from the viewer but from this angle, the viewer can see it and it does make some sense why it would be placed like this:

If it stays there, I'm going to make a pile of earth around the feet of the posts, to show where it'd been recently placed there.

This is the graphic I used, though printed out you just can't see all the detail I put into it:

This is the image I used, and I have decided that I will be making a small run of patches from this:

Over the weekend, I was busy with a bunch of detail stuff.

I took a couple of coaches I bought it a show for next to nothing, Christmas patterns, and turn them both into Maintenance of Way cars. I didn't really need them, and I probably won't use them in any op sessions, but I just wanted to mess around with them because I had almost no money in them.

Take a look at the soda bottles in the pallet, each was an individual piece. That took quite a while to get those together...

I also added a LOT of new detail, including some tarps, tarped loads, damaged oil drums, and several other things...

I also ran my trench locomotive:

Excellent job, Lee! I would love to see some more close-ups of the details. Keep up your fantastic work.

I'll see what I can do about the detail photos.

Meanwhile, I did a couple of new videos last night:

Due to returned trolling of my posts here, I'm probably going to quit posting on this forum. Now I remember why I was away for a while.
