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.

Incredible!!!! 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 together.

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.
