Work is progressing well on the Battle Mountain section bench work. The design is similar to the bench work used on the Carlin section and the upper return loop as it has removable LED lighting panels mounted to the bottom. I plan to have a model building work bench under part of this section and the LED's will provide general lighting for that.
Yes, I've already been penciling in some track layout idea on the deck.
With this section I have now used up all the 1/4 inch plywood that I had picked up cheap at a garage sale in 2014.
After this section of bench work is fully assembled, it will be given a quick test fit to the Gloconda section before getting painted.

This summer has been quite busy for me catching up on some projects around the house but when I have gotten out to the train room I've been going through and adding some scenery. About 10 feet of the layout already had basic scenery done so it is mostly adding hundreds of small bits of Woodland Scenics clump foliage to give the layout a similar look to what is in the backdrop.
