Not much visible progress

I have made a bit of progress on the layout.  I have added some more feeders and I still need to add a few more to fix some dead spots.  I than discovered a missed a few spots will mortaring the old foundation last summer and had a leak in the basement.  I had to pull out the stairs leading to the basement to get at eh spots that leaked so I ended up replacing all the treads and risers on the that as well.  The final thing is I added three way switches to the basement so you can turn on and off the lights regardless of what direction you enter.  I have one more change in the basement, a move of some of the duct work for the heat that will improve the headroom and appearance in one corner of the layout room.

More scenery experimentation

Having been happy with my first attempts at static grass, I have giving ballasting and other scenery a try.  Not too bad for a first attempt.
