Got back to the layout after 2 months - took a full day to clean the tracks and get rid of the dust deposit (though the dust is possibly the best weathering material I have ever seen!).
Given everything that is going on with my life (change of job, relocation etc.), I decided to take baby steps in terms of model railroading. So this update is not really much of an update, but just to make me feel better that I am doing something!
I started with painting the wooden crates, boxes and barrels - this was pending for a long time. And then I just spent some time clicking some of my favorite angles.
