|Marty McGuirk's CV Richford Branch scene has come alive with a bit of photoshop additions done by Bernard Kampinski. Bernard's photo.|
What I really wanted to show you from Bernie's post was this great view on Marty McGuirk's CV Richford Branch layout. Marty changed course a few years back switching from modeling the CV main line to a Northern Vermont branch line which takes up less space in his basement, meaning less work to complete a layout and at a lower cost. One can follow along on Central Vermont Railway Marty's blog link is also found on my sidebar.
I had seen photos taken on Marty's trestle over the years but this photo with the train positioned well, taken by Bernie is very impressive. By adding a dramatic sky, a bit of a backdrop and some Alco smoke, the scene seems real. Very good work by both Marty building such a realistic scene and Bernie for his artistic touch capturing the flavor of a branch line scene.
It now has me thinking can I come up with such a view of the WRD or do I have to call Bernie over...George Dutka
