    That is an impressive coaler.

    I think my tipple will be quite differnt.

    I painted one of the store fronts red then deleted my camera soft ware and now I cant find the disk to reinstall it.

    That is the way it goes.

    Speaking of red, those cars are pretty colorful.

    Gil, right now, I have two Lionel coaling towers [plastic ones] that I am going to kitbash and make a coaling facility. Exactly how, I have not decided how, yet.

    Spanky, that is it in a nut shell, the whole nine yards right there.

    I made a smaller version, much smaller ,once with a cut away mine shaft that had wheat grem lites in it, on the cut away side I had a pain of glass and ho track liad in the shaft with a donkey and cart on it.

    I am limitted space wise but I want to make it like that again.

    That is awsome, whos layout is that?

    You call me Spanky [that low down no good Yankee] again and I'm coming up to WV with my REB cavalry and tar and feather you. ;) :D Do not remember his name and have lost his email. I did store his pictures in my computer. I told him how good he did and I would be copying it to some degree. He was fine with that.

    Howdy to All.

    Chief... If you build a complex like those pictured, you sure have your work
    cut out for you. Good luck to you. It will be great.

    Gil... I hear you are on the Chief's :mad: list.

    That's what I figured, John. I'm out in the bunker with the nasty, Rebel hating, guard dogs. They like southern meat.
