First, a preview of the reason for all this rush to get in scenery: catenary! Dunes Junction will eventually be under a web of wire, which will make scenery construction very difficult. A test-shot catenary span bridge hand-made by Oberleitungsbaumeister Don Silberbauer of Model Memories arrived this week, and I've had loads of fun posing it around Dunes Junction. With clothes pins holding up the poles, it sits a little high, but Don did an outstanding job of getting the lines and proportions absolutely perfect.

The smaller SuperTrees have been dipped in
