I'm happy to report that I've been riding that wave lately. When I'm not delving back into benchwork & backdrops, I'm trying different techniques for modeling brick buildings, dipping my toe into building a few (simple) craftsman structure kits & (trying) casting plaster rocks, and even getting back into doing scenery at East Berlin (including starting a river). After a fun-filled Fall of railroad road-tripping, it's nice to get back to the basement and make some more progress on the layout.
So hopefully you're still on board - the train is on the east leg of the Saybrook wye and ready to head up the Valley Line to show you more of what all's been going on . . .
