Dominion Textile? - Reshaping the Mountain

A short CPR local freight is approacing the plant.

Yesterday, we decided to finally improve the mountain scenery. Louis-Marie, the conceptor behind this impressive landscape, always had serious doubts about the Rockies look of the ridge over the tunnel portal.

Thus, the mountain height was shortened, and the hills were extended to the right, helping to blend the scenery more naturally with the industrial scene next to it.

A new industry has been set, loosely inspired by Donnacona Fiberboard Co. In fact, it looks a lot like Dominion Textile plant at Montmorency on Murray Bay Sub. Also, the landscape isn't that far from what existed there back in the 70s and 80s. Thus, I'm seriously thinking about converting this factory complex into a proto-freelanced Dominion Textile, which I have fond memories from my childhood. That would make more sense according to our layout theme.

I'll see if I try to model the old electric power station plume that still exist. It would be located along the blue styrofoam ridge.
