The Debut of the Mission Valley & Pacific’s Tidewater Division

May 17, 2010

This is an overall view of the layout as of March 20th 2010, I’ll take an updated photo soon. This was taken minutes after I completed construction on the mainline after 4 days of track work.

These photos were taken two days earlier as I began track work on the part of the layout that will have a tidewater marsh and salt evaporation ponds with various other details including an abandoned narrow gauge ROW as a nod to the real South Pacific Coast Ry.

Of course, the obligatory “golden spike” shot when the mainline was completed had to be put in here.

Meanwhile on the other side of the layout, one of the modules saved from the Highgrove Division layout sees a modern ATSF freight roll across the steel truss span. The cars feature hand-painted graffiti that I did for a client.

Stay tuned for another installment!
