Step 1: Site Analysis/Infrastructure Design-Build

A koi pond has been roughed-in before the track plan can begin.  It's a modest-sized pond that will serve as a scale version of Lake Davidson on Buck Creek in Helena.  The pond will be fed by rainfall accumulated via a rain barrel, if we can get some rain.

Here's the top pond that will feature a small waterfall.  A beautiful Japanese maple is in the background.  The biological filter is homemade from a Rubbermaid tub!  A Russian sage rests on the ledge, waiting to be set in place.  Although looking rough now, the final result should be captivating.  One or more bridges will span the scale version of Buck Creek.

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!
