WFS On the Road 6-8-19

The Wetterau Food Services Micro Layout was set up and operated at the American Heritage Railroad Train Show in Greenville, Illinois on June 8, 2019. I purchased my first sound-equipped loco, and it made its debut at this show. The prototype loco used to run on the tracks that connected with the actual Wetterau Food Services warehouse spur track in Desloge, Missouri.

The assembled baseboard and track work turned 5 years old this year. Scenery work was completed in 2016 and it's beginning to show signs of fading. Overall, the foamcore layout is holding up and still runs well!

Plaster cloth applied.
I'm also in the process of pouring rock molds, and I will be applying these castings to the layout next. The backdrop is also being repainted. More updates soon.
