South Industrial Boulevard
Author: Jimmies

Not much happening on this board for the past couple of days, so I'm breaking the silence with some views of the South Industrial area of my layout.

Your attention to detail, as always, is just beyond belief.  That's really outstanding work.

In photo #1, how did that truck trailer get on the roof of that building on the left?

Very realistic.  But aren't chain link fences made of galvanized still which doesn't rust?

Old chain link fences rust. It takes a while but eventually the zinc gives in and the rust begins.

Nice try, but when the zinc coating fails, which take a few years of weather, rust forms on the steel.

Fair enough.  I can't remember seeing a rusted chain link fence.  I learned something.

I thought maybe that business had overflow rooftop parking for semi-truck trailers : )

Say nothing of the industrial scene, I am also impressed by the clouds or fog on the mountains.

Exceptional work there.   And for the record, I have seen rusty chain link fences.

I found out lthe hard way when I started photographing my models how ridiculously easy it is to miss stuff like that. Even when I triple check a scene, I still miss things.

Reguardless,  your scenes look great.

Great work on the mundane aspects of railroading we too often overlook for the 3/4 wedge images of approaching trains.
This shows your railroad at work, thank you for sharing.
I have lived across the street from a galvanized roof auto shed for 12 years now.
When I first moved in there were a few streaks of rust, now it is about 100% rust.
A little voice told me I should take a photo about once a year to see how it changes, but I was not that disciplined.
