This first shot is the triangle where the wood lot greenery will be planted. This you saw on the last post.
Here you can see the treeline between the yard and the road, which provides a nice separation from the Richmond Husky terminal.
On the oposite side I built a treelined berm to keep the railfans out and ensure there are no elbows on the layout.
This Walther's station was a builtup and dropped right into place, finishing the yard area and provided a layered approach between the track and the wall with background buildings parking lot and trees.
It also helped divide Richmond yard from the classification yard in Wainwright.
This is from the Richmond yard throat and you can see how the Walther's industrial building were used to wrap around the central wall which was created for a scenery divide. Also the curves in the track treeline and roads provides a forced perspective to draw the eye into the scene. Interesting to see how the mountains, painted into the far wall formulate the completed scene.
You can see down the track where the woodland will be placed in front of the grain terminal
Here are closeups of the Mike hamer style of tree. These are made from Spirea.
I placed the camera right into this scene so you could see the backside of the station and the road approach.
Back of the station from Richmond Yard and Fairview shops.
There will be a bakery in the empty lot between the track and station road.
I think this will be a great spot for visitors and future photos of the train action.
The helo is hovering over the new scenetry looking across to Richmond yard.
A good view of the next area to be developed and how those buildings wrap around the backdrop.
Now all we need to do is bring the trains back in:)
