Sorry its been so long. You will see where I am working on a section. I have a little electric motor hidden in the plaster to turn the reel on the combine. I have the house wired with lights in every room and a TV going. I've got a big train meet at my house in January and I promised the members I would have a lot more scenery finished. As you can see in the pics I have a long way to go. After moving here a few years ago I had to start completely over. I have most of the track laid except for a few sidings with all if my turnouts wired. You can see in the background weeds and that is what I make my trees out of. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the pics!! You have a very nice layout! Since we (my family and I) farm, I really like the parts of your layout that have to do with farming, and the parts that have tractors and farm machinery.

I wanted to know more about the Massey Ferguson tractor and combine in this picture. Did you make them? What model of tractor and combine are they? Do you have any close-up pictures of them?

If you like toy tractors and such check out 3000toys.com they haveI tons of detailed toys in all different scales. Isn't the HO stuff like 1/87th scale ? If so these guys selection will blow your mind.
I would love to do this , but life just seems to get in my way so ill just enjoy others instead. And geeat job by the way!!

As you can tell I've started combining wheat and nearly have everything bushoged. As you can also see I have a lot of work left to do on the scenery. Where you see wholes and sticks there will be trees and bushes. You have to make the holes while the plaster is wet.

The trees in the forefront are the ones I have made, all that's left to do on them is put the greenery. The trunks are just limbs I get out in the yard. In the back are the weeds from out in the field. This is how they look when I get them from the field.

Gabriel, these are the pictures that I promised you on the Ferguson's. Pick out one of the Massey Ferguson tractors you want and I will send it to you. They are 1/64 scale. The 4 in the forefront are 1/87. The tractors on the layout are 1/64 and the main reason is I have spent hours making the equipment to go with it. I used the 1/87 for train car loads.
