Although the track hasn't been set on the garden railroad, this simple vignette was staged for the wonderful photo-op that mother nature provided on the day after Christmas. The locomotive and two-bay hoppers are from Aristo-Craft. The evergreens along the track are two of the Dwarf Alberta spruces that were featured a few days ago. They are still in the plastic containers in which they arrived.

There's a lot of work to be done to get this project moving. Help is always welcome out here on the L&N. Hearing the whistles of real trains off in the distance inspire the creativity to strive forward! The small pine in the foreground is an Italian stone pine. A lorepetulum shaped as a tree is on the right and a Monkey Puzzle tree (Cunningham fir) is in the back center. We have a lot of work to do!
