I've finally added as much plaster cloth as I expect I'll need, and have moved on to priming the base before painting it. Priming made it look unfamiliar, but also like I've actually *done* something. No more odd mix of pink foam, black artboard and white plaster cloth.
The painter tape on the track serves as motivation to keep moving on this layout.

The other night I was in a discussion with some very talented model railroaders, the top people in z scale.
The subject came up about lighted bumper posts.
Passengers in MTL Empire Builder dome cars
