    Have you thought about a light weight piece that can be removed to access the center. If you want scenery in the center. Have seen several articles about doing that.

    Hmmm. Didn’t think about that. I will probably start with the 2x2 crawl in and build a slip in as another project down the road...great idea!

    That timber retaining wall at left looks very good as placed.

    Email sent. I’m going to fill in that drainage ditch and make that area a logging camp with a muddy road, the other side of the tracks on curve will be a chipping area where I can put that truck

    Love that hill! It turned out very nicely. All it needs now is trees! (and a lot of them)

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on using two different types/manufacturers or trees? The Bachman trees were a Christmas gift and I’d feel bad if I didn’t use them

    Lots of different trees out there in the real world. If one liked them I'd put them front and center. If one didn't like them so much find a place where they don't show as much. Also probably most of the ones out there could be modified to some degree,

    Noob, I like to use a variety of manufacturers and also make them myself. Natural trees have a large amount of different types and I believe it looks better to try to copy.

    Just mix them and space them out throughout the layout and no one will know except you. I would use them.

    That’s all the trees I have for now! Didn’t think the two brands of trees would mix well but it looks great!
