    No video yet, coming. Here's some panoramic shots. Not sure how that will work here so it's a test.

    This is a rough design for Crooked Mile Town. What to put where?

    So far I am thinking Barber Shop, Hardware Store, Saloon, Bait shop, Lumber yard. Maybe number 6 will be Bar-b-que Pit? What else?

    I would think some kind of loading dock and warehouse would be needed in order to import the truly important things in life: Alcohol, Tobacco, and Coffee.

    Perhaps one more spur opposite the town scene for that must need warehouse and dock.

    Rather than a hardware store, how about a general store? (Maybe with a gas pump as well?) Combines many into one, and leaves opportunities for other available spaces?

    General store makes a lot of sense, could include the gunsmith.

    Loading dock yes indeed. Right along the grey pilings

    I was out at my workshop today and remembered that I had bought a small laser engraver online to do some labels for woodwork projects. Well I brought it home and took a piece of On30 lumber and engraved a sign. I need to get it to center but here is a first attempt. Think it will look good mounted on a building.

    The art of centering, have to get this down a little better. Make a great handing sign done on both sides.

    Bait & tackle shop sign. It will go over acrylic paint to so you could have a paint weathered sign with this etching. I like the rough sawn wood look.

    I find that the laser engraver has a very small area that it will cover, so doing a bigger sign has to be done in sections. This one for the sawmill & lumber yard is done in 3 areas and I could add some script lower left.

    Some progress with the railroad, crossing the Crooked Mile River. Bridge number 3.
