Scenery

Today was track painting day.

First I sat in the living room with Tusse as helper with the quality tests, but when it came to painting rails the light was not enough, had to sit down at the workbench with strong desk light right over. My eyes is not as good as they used to be..

Here is also a few pictures on the trees I will use. At first I planned to finish all the scenery before tracks, but I would just knock down everyone of them during the track work so that will be last instead.
