No, have not fallen off the face of the earth. The full-time job has been keeping me busy of late. Did have a chance to sit down at the computer last night and catch up on a few friends’ blogs. While visiting Trevor Marshall’s blog, I notice a link to another P48 modeler, so I “surfed” over to Jim Lincoln’s The Delaware Lackawanna in Proto 48 .
I especially liked his “leaf” experiment. Jim points out a missing ingredient on Fall/Winter layouts, the leaves that get blown into the drainage ditches and along the right of way in various places. If you get a chance, go read about Jim’s solution.
