No visible progress on the module yet, but I made a small amount of progress at the Brisbane Model Train Show today.
I'd been hoping to buy the track I needed, but neither of the stores that I knew carry the right type were exhibiting, and I couldn't find the right type at any of the stores who did have stands.
But I did see several other displays with silos there, and in the process learned about the Walthers grain elevator kit:
It'll need some kitbashing, that is, it doesn't look exactly like the scene that I'm modelling, so I'll need to change it. But it's close enough to what I need that I can at least consider kitbashing. Until today, I thought I'd have to build it from scratch. I might still do it that way, we'll see.
I don't know yet if I have the patience or skill, but it was very cool to see some examples of N scale work done well. For comparison, these modules are about 50% longer and wider than my module:
The photos don't do it justice, but even so you can see the attention to detail and the quality of the workmanship that goes into these models.
