Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
It has been a busy few months for me so naturally not too much progress on the layout although more time on the road equates to more time to browse the internet and buy stuff.
I picked up a couple Scaletrains.com hoppers for my sugar silo, a few Corn Syrup cars that I have started re-numbering along with weathering and a nice display case for some locomotives that don't get to run on my little shelf layout. It was a perfect fit above my lead extension. I tricked it out with a cheap Lowes Floating Shelf and an LED strip to help with the lighting. I am very happy with the outcome!
Next is a little overhang that will be gated in for unloading Phosphoric Acid
I got around to finishing the gravel lot around the ADM Corn Syrup transfer station as well as decaling the truck.
My Chop Nose GP7 project is finally nearing completion. I have had some decoder trouble so I will be ordering a Tsunami 2 decoder for it.
I am modeling the Northeast in the middle of winter and have been really anxious to try some old melting snow.
I am having a blast with my little piece of the Northeast and am finally moving cars around with my Lead Extension in place. Next up I plan on taking pictures of some bare tree lines on my visit up North to turn into some cut out back drop sections. I think this will help give some depth to the scenery.
I think I will be keeping the grey sky look to help with that winter feel.
