George Nelson farm

George Nelson farm

George recently added this new farm scene to his O-gauge home layout. Since taking this photo, he has added a woman milking a cow and a John Deere tractor to the scene. The industry to the right is the International Paper Mill in Mobile. He used photos of the mill taken before it was abandoned and torn down, printed them to the needed size, and pasted them to foam board as a backdrop. The small trains in the upper left area of the layout are N-scale. Because they are about 1/4 the size of the O-gauge trains, the placement creates "forced perspective" and adds depth to the layout.
