Roadbed work and scenery

Our latest helpers, pictured, are the Smith girls who made Sculpey (clay) bakery goods for the bakery window. Little fingers made little cakes and cookies. Next time they'll make figures as they already know how.Susan and Dave helped to cut backer board for the mountain frame  and made scenery, too. John submitted his plan for a metal suspension bridge and the rest of us started screwing the plastic roadbed to the steel frame over the trailer's wheels.

Daniel took home one trailer side for fitting with a series of wooden bridges, trestle and retaining walls all with hand-laid track.

Terry's paint job on the metal buildings looks great and ready to install. They will be mounted above the battery box, now purchased, be part of the town, and be visible while the trailer is traveling.

Frank and Donna made us all a lovely BBQ lunch at their house where the kids went swimming. Then we paraded over to Kermit's for a tour. Big day!

We still need YOUR help! Lots to do. We have our first venue in October, finished or not. Let's make it finished!
