Trees! Finally!

I haven't done much over the past few months, however I did get around to placing a few trees on my layout. These beauties come from Canyon Creek Scenics and are probably the best looking model pines I've ever seen! I purchased 13 of them ranging in size from 6" to 9" for my layout and I like them so much I think I'm going to purchase another 15 or so.  (It's amazing how just how many trees are needed to fill out a small layout.)

Having placed these trees temporarily on my layout, I find myself inspired to finally get around to finishing out my scenery.  Or, at least laying down some proper ground cover.

If you are looking for great looking model pines, I highly recommend checking out Canyon Creek Scenics.


  1. Hi, I used to live in Spokane, and have friends in Ione, and have been on the scenic train from Ione to Metaline over the box Canyon Bridge a couple times, it's my favorite railroad "scene" anywhere. Glad you are working on that scenic place! I have long planned to model that area myself someday, with the Box Canyon bridge as a centerpiece. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for the comment Chris! It's great to hear that you are planning your own model of the area. Please share your progress as I'm very interested in seeing how it turns out. I hope to finish my own little version of the Box Canyon Bridge soon. We will see. :)
