An addition and experiment…..

This past week saw an addition to the layout, plus an experiment. The addition is a dozer I already had purchased a few years back that I decided to dirty up and weather from working around a coal mine. I made a coal pile behind Hitop mine, and placed the dozer as shown in the photo below. The coal pile is a bit taller than it looks in the photo:

And a photo or two of the weathered dozer:

The experiment consists of a foam board backdrop provided by a good friend and club member for use in photos. The backdrop is a combination of sky and clouds, and is shown in use below. Very cool effects even with this relatively small backdrop, as this photo almost looks like the fog you’d see in the Kanawha valley in early morning. The photo shows Dickinson yard office area just after the sun has peeked its rays up over the surrounding hills:
