Wesley Street
Wesley Street, on the HStP&B.  A delivery truck waits at Mott's Crossing in Herky's Landing.  This 1950's view of Wesley Street on Peter Kruimer's Helena, St. Paul & Blackfoot features the most dense assemblage of fall foliage on the layout.  All of the trees, ranging from reds, yellows, golds and browns to bare, were scratchbuilt using twigs as trunks and branches, and various scale leaf products.  Fallen leaves on the street and ground are a nice touch that helps set the scene, which was shot under three blue 500-watt Photoflood lamps using Velvia 50 film in a Pentax K-1000 set at f22 for 4 seconds.  (May 1999).
