More incredible additions to Sam Towler's stunning scale model of Disneyland's extinct Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland.
Bear Country before water is added.
New, fake water.
A little beaver for Beaver Valley.
The icing on the cake. A Mike Fink Keel Boat (in-the-making)
Fog! Produced by a fog machine for the purposes of taking this photo. Oh how fun it must have been to ride Mine Train in the fog.
Tastefully-placed LED lighting makes for a gorgeous night shot.
A great new technique for making waterfalls:
Two years ago we posted a wonderful collection of Sam's behind-the-scenes photos of the model-making process. Sam recently mentioned on his blog that this labor of love has hit the seven year mark. As we've said before, this model with its moving parts is "one of the coolest examples of 'Backyard Imagineering' we've ever seen."
