Blackwood Ridge - a little mine railway in HOe

While waiting for my latest order from MiniTrains with there new brigade locomotive from WWI, I got the idea to build a small demo layout to show and run them on. Since last when I built Duckwall Flats I also bought a new static grass master I wanted to play with a bit more.

This HOe layout from Noch seemed like a good start but later not much of this initial idea remained.
