D&RGW in San Luis Valley

by Roland Levin, Stockholm Sweden

 

My focus this year is to finalize the scenery on the upper level of the layout.


I put in some pipe work and landscape around
the shed for the pumps in Center.

A scratch build structure of Ranch Ways Feeds in Center.

 

Two different lumber loads. The lumber load to the left is built from a American Model Builders kit and the one to the right is a Owl Mountain Models kit.

 

A few pictures from a operations session in November (photos by Thomas Nordanberg). SLC71 switching cars in Center, setting out a covered hopper with fertilizer.

SLC71 is passing over the Rio Grande river, or at least what is going to be the large river later on it's journey.

 

D&RGW1185 passes through the station in Monte Vista on it's return from Creede to Alamosa.
