    Down at the right end of town, I thought I'd see how a more modern water storage tower would fit.

    Seems like this would be a good fit so poured a pad for it.

    When the pad dried, set everything in place and added a little ground cover outside the fence.

    Thinking once I clean this up and do some more landscaping, it will look decent enough. :)

    To continue with the progress from the weekend, I updated my track plan with the switch numbers and posted it on each side of the layout. I know several folks commented on liking how I had my switches/turnouts numbered (and I liked it too), I had never planned to leave them like that so the toothpick farm is now out of business. :) What is new is signal relay boxes have started popping up at places where the under track uncoupling magnets are. Here's a pic pointing some of them out (a work in progress) along with adding a new section of road and a ballast shoulder.

    Here is another area where some buildings may be added. Not too sure on the ice cream shack but the other two might be a good fit.

    Found these signal bridges in a box of odds and ends items and wasn't sure what to do with them so they there just for fun right now.

    Also found a bunch of dumpsters in the box so maybe a quick and easy scene would be a recycle drop off site? Maybe?

    And lastly, had to make another ground cover mess or two. :D

    That's it for this past weekend. Not sure what is next. I guess whatever shiny object catches my eye. :)
