(I was bored) The pieces arent glued in or anything(just pinned to each other) so it can be taken if you guys want me to. I figured that with the open house coming up in about a week that should be addressed, its not very pretty to look at. If I get the ok from the higher ups in the club Ill have that section done in time for the open house. Only thing I need to know is whether they want the tunnel to have a portal or a natural bore look to it. All clearances have already been checked by two other members and it looks about a hundred times better already.

I was trying to keep in mind what equipment would be using that track, but since I never modeled in HO I didnt know the engines got that big. I mean that size of the portal doesn't matter to me, Ill make it as big as needed. But I was trying to be considerate, this is a club and I understand fully that Im a new member and I want not to step on the toes of others.

Then on tuesday Ill start to task of blending them in and by this time next week you'll never have known that there was a gapping hole in the scenery.
I also plan on see what the plan with the American hardware building is. I took it out today and did some basic measurements but I have no earthly idea what the plan calls for so i put it away.
