Our Model Railroad

We really only tackled a few, minor projects in 2014. One was to remove a tunnel on the upper level, that we never ended up using and the second was to remove one of the original, decretive retaining walls and replace it with a stacked stone wall, similar to one that we built in 2012. I forgot to take pics of the new wall, and right now, it is buried in snow! We did not have an open house this year either.

The large steel bridge that was installed in 2008 was at the point it needed refinishing. I removed it, sandblasted it, and repainted it. The side that faced the waterfall had most of the deterioration.

Once sandblasted, sanded, and primed, I repainted it.

As our collection of unique, miniature shrubs is growing, we decided we better start labeling them. Lorrie bought some plant signs, and started installing them throughout the garden.

I purchased a radio control quad copter this year, and have my GoPro Hero 3, mounted on it. I took this shot of the garden on June 22nd.
