While all of that was going on, the MARS had a visit by Dennis Brennan, a friend and noted photographer for Classic Toy Trains! Honestly, I wanted to send some photos taken on the MARS to Classic Toy Trains and asked Dennis if he would take some photos for me simply because I knew he would make the MARS look good.
I'm going to end this post with a photo taken looking across the Moreland River into New Beau City. I am going to start the project off by repainting the wall behind the city sky blue. I tried using a painted mural, but as time has gone on, I've decided that using modeled buildings, combined with low-relief structures and building flats, will help me better create the effect I am trying to achieve with this particular project.
