East Rail at Halftime

Labor Day weekend say the installation of East Rail 2’s trailer park. With that addition, the major features of the first half of the layout (right side of the L shaped bench work) are now in place. I’ll spend a few months puttering with details before moving to the remaining half. The mobile homes are from Inter-Action Hobbies, nice kits with excellent instructions. The queen palm in front of the blue trailer was scratch built using my craft cutter. The fronds of the queen are much finer so I had to make new artwork for those.

For a fun comparison here’s a photo of the same basic scene on the original layout taken in 2005.
