I have not been very busy on my layout for some time, but over the last two days I began the process of building the mountain I had evisioned when I first began to build. It is a simple mountain. It is made of plaster cloth that was laid over crumples newspaper, then the newspaper was removed so that the tracks would be clear again. It seems quite sturdy. I will be adding foliage and "rock outcropping" as time and energy permit. I thank Deacon Len for the awesome rocks that will be a part of this mountain.
You may also notice, in this short video, that I have two engines running in opposite directions. This is not by accident. As I have been playing with DCC, these two engines are very simple versions of DCC equiped engines and they serve my purpose for now.
I had hoped to do more with DCC, but find that some of the equipment is a bit pricier than I want to spend on what should be a simple fun hobby. Meanwhile, the mountain needs a lot of detailing ... that should keep me busy for a while.
Until the next time .... Blessings on this feast of St. Benedict ...
