Re: Mock-up structures at Cranberry

I had pretty good success using a photo of a model as a
backdrop. I think I’ve posted this before, but I can’t find where I did, so I’ll
include it here. I didn’t have room for the Iron Furnace in Johnson City,
so I hit upon the idea of using a photo of the real furnace as a backdrop.
I didn’t have much luck, until I thought of using a photo of John Waite’s
furnace instead. Since it is a model, it seems to fit right in. I’m
not sure this will work in your case, but it’s an idea.

Thanks for sending these beautiful pictures out. I am saving them for planning
of my future build. I have room for the “ore concentrator” in O scale. It could
be that 2D backdrops are behind this with a large pile of tailings to tie it all
I haven't actually constructed my Cranberry buildings yet, but Doc Tom
asked if I had plans for my space, so I thought I would post photos of the
mock-ups I have done for the Cranberry buildings. I don't visualize well, so
it's really important for me to mock something up before actually investing in
materials and time. It was necessary to selectively compress everything, but I
hope I captured the essence of the scene. I am happy with the operation,
and the role of Cranberry Yard Master is a busy one during operating sessions.
I also added ITT sound modules for the water tank and the ore concentrator,
which are pretty neat. Not sure when I'll get the buildings done, but I
already own the Cranberry Store Kit and have an order in for the Depot, so
they may be built sooner than later. Thanks for looking.
