This module is the one that bridges the gap between the two layout rooms. I've removed the backdrop for now. The steps involved today were; Trim the fascia of the module level with the baseboard where the river level will be; Cut and shape the Styrofoam for both ends of the module; place some of the trestle legs in "rough" position to see how every thing looks.
There is still plenty to do on this module to get it to a completed scenic base...before I can put on the final scenery materials. Perhaps next weekend I will get a bit more done!
