More Progress on the Layout: Turning from Blue to Green

The blue is turning to green . . . .

It's a long weekend in Manitoba--Louis Riel Day. It's a day to remember one of the founders of the province (and who was convicted of high treason and hanged by the Government of Canada in 1885).

In reality, the long weekend is a much-needed break for the citizens of this snow-bound province. For me, it was a chance to do a bit more scenery on the layout.

An overview of the progress.

Slowly, the expanse of blue Styrofoam has been turning green. As of today, there is no blue left to be found. There's still lots of work to be done yet--ballasting, planting trees and other details. But at least the blue is now gone.

What the area looked like before.

  1. As the old sartorial saying says:
    Blue and green should never be seen,
    Except in the washing machine.
    Nice work, John! Riel-ly big improvement in that area.
