Album: 10/1/2013 update

Hancock Elevator after weathering, showing new static grass and weeds on the hillside to the north. Many details and trees remain to be added throughout. A thick cut of pine trees on the prototype near the covered hopper's location will serve to hide the "tunnel" entrance once scenery is complete. That tunnel allows me to manually shove cuts of covered hoppers north (left) of the elevator as they're loaded between operating sessions, meaning my model crews can pull from the same location near the covered hopper as their prototype counterparts.
