Adding some ground cover

I am trying to take one step at a time everyday. A small progress for today - a layer of ground cover around the lighthouse...

I particularly like the 3rd one!

Scenery and Backdrop!

OK - this weekend was productive after a long time. Task was pretty simple - finish coloring the remaining scenery and paint the backdrop. Below are some photos:

My next target is to finish all ballasting, applying ground cover on the scenery and finish making some home made trees before the weekend.

New (And Hopefully Final) Home for Wrightsville Port!

Ok. This time I felt as good as the day I started building this layout, if not more. Last weekend we shifted to our new apartment, and finally was able to present Wrightsville Port with it's designated and long awaiting corner - and I hope that she doesn't have to move to another unknown place again anytime soon.

I finally got the chance to provide dedicated lighting for the layout - two spot lights and two lamp sheds. the light simulates bright day light and can be switched to Morning/Evening mode by switching off the spot lights.

Here are some photos of the whole layout. The space below the layout has been made into a storage place for all stuff related to model railroading! :)


Now In case you are wondering looking at the above photos, yes, the space below the staging has been converted into a bookshelf. Design and concept - Mouli. Given the recent visits in the house, the book shelf is now definitely a bigger attraction than the layout. :)

And now here are some photos of the layout after it's operational once again. My personal take is, the lighting efforts have paid out!
