Layout Work Begins Again

Work on the layout has resumed!

I was not happy with the original placement of the structures, so I am rearranging things. The freight house will now represent the original structure of the furniture manufacturer. The four-story brick/concrete structure will represent expansion of the furniture manufacturer's operations. The original structure will receive shipments, and the new structure will ship finished products. I've decided to add a grain elevator to the layout as well. Storage bins will be added to the scene in the near future. The public siding will be located on the right side of the layout, and will feature a concrete loading dock.

Until next time!

OASIS Layout Update - Layout Lighting 1

Testing out layout lighting with some "el cheapo" LED light fixtures on the left side of layout. There are some dark spots visible, even with the room lights on. Cast shadows from the valance are noticeable with the room lighting on, and the dark spots are still noticeable with them off. Looks like longer LED light bars are needed.

Until next time
