Worked on the basic cardboard stripping around the tunnel portal being add down by the Mississippi River.
New bridge piers were added at Joliet.
I haven't officially made my mind up, but I believe I will be going with the dark gray (left) ballast for the yard and industrial trackage. The mainline and sidings will have the #50 Penn-Ohio blend (right).
I haven't done too much over the past few days other than work on cleaning up the layout room for the upcoming op session.
This morning, I did start on the American Can Co. building in Joliet. I kitbashed two DPM Goodnight Mattress Co. kits to create the structure. I have to fill the gaps with putty, paint and add a roof, but the building is in place. I also went back after the photos were taken and started making the driveway for the truck unloading area with wall putty.
