A layout offers a lot of opportunities to stage scenes for a while to provide variety and points of interest. B. Smith offers many scenes along the Limpia Canyon Northern to illustrate.
Here are a couple of images of loading wheat.
Here, the county is getting some asphalt off the Sanderson team track.
Here we see some manure being loaded. Kind of a nasty job!
The the next two scenes, we see the team track in Sanderson getting some more action as a Jimmy and Tom unload some feed.
Last we see some feed being unloaded in a more humane fashion.
With just a few vehicles and figures, you can stage some great scenes along your line. These “pop-up” scenes only hang around for awhile, but they can make your layout really come alive, even if it is only for a few days.
