Because the city of Rosenheim is going to be built on a freestanding peninsula I need a deeper sky background behind it. Therefore I had to add horizontal supports going down to four feet. In the second picture you can see the future background leaning against the wall.

This is most impressive, Michael!  You are making great progress very quickly - though it may not seem quick to you.

Cheers!

I've connected to he old N scale background. Now we will wait for Hurricane Matthews and see for how long we'll lose power. It might be several days before I'll be back...

Good luck with Matthew. 

How are you planning to power this giant, and how many boosters do you expect to use?

Cheers!

Michael,

Yes, good luck with the hurricane.

In 1969, I was in the U.S. Army, and as a military journalist, I was with the first group of Army troops to land in Gulfport, Miss., after the runways had been cleared following Hurricane Camille.

I spent about a week there, documenting both the devastation and relief efforts by the U.S. Army.  It certainly gave me good respect for the power of hurricanes.

It's stormy outside and raining because of Hurricane Matthews but so far we've been lucky with no damage. We still have power, sometimes flickering a bit but otherwise ok. I'm not doing any real work today, I don't want to damage my expensive lab equipment with power surges and such but I decided it's safe enough to work on the railroad Big smile!

I managed to get a piece of the first new peninsula in place! This peninsula was part of the G&AM Allen Mountain and so it's only 5 feet wide and also not long enough. I will have to cut up one of the other peninsulas and add a piece to get to the full length.
