Progress update: The swamp on the diorama is just about done. Maybe one more coat. Also tried some test shots of the subterra passenger station. Some more detailing to do there.

Nice progress on the main layout. For the first time since about 1988, I have a loop and can railfan and just watch trains run. I’ve got three DC electrical blocks wired up and pulled out some engines to see what would work. Quite surprised and found some gems in the rough. Well, they move at least! Got to figure out the shells and which motors to use.

Also snagged some sci-fi models for scenery, which is exciting (no pics). A bit more trackwork to do, then weathering. The vision is starting to come together.
