Hello everyone.
It has been several months since I have posted because I was busy creating buildings for my layout. I am going to show them to you today.
The layout consists of twelve modules which collapse (knockdown) and are easily moveable for shows . Right now, I have three modules that lock together
I have much more work to do which I do by myself.
I am looking forward to your comments on the modules I have completed so far.

Update;
Thanks you all for your comments
Following a few comments from French modeler, I took up the position of the engine house.
I managed to fit it in line with the bridge, the only problem is that it will be riding on three modules.
On the other hand, it allows me to install three small feeder tracks, one in line with the bridge and the feeder. The turnout will be used for the logger tracks on the modules 8, 9, 10.
Two photos to illustrate the work.

Some progress made this day.
I found that my buildings were too close to the depot, so I started to make a corner which made it possible to remove them and to have space in front to be able to put accessories
I took advantage of it to redo the disposal of the depot.

You can see the future climb to bridg

I propose you the beginning of a small construction of an old west station to install it later on my layout. The frames are in samba of 9x9, the vertical and the blades are in balsa of 1mm, the frames of door and window in balsa of 2.

You see that the two sides are not of the same width, it is normal since the station will be skewed and contiguous to the backdrop. I also added a small shed which I am finishing the roof and then I attack the one of the station

Looking very western. Great work.

I like your use of short stock.

If you might, i would like another pic of the rail truck.

Yes, no problem Phil. How big do you want it. Softwood or oak framed?
