    Inland Cement Company and Another shot of the Glacier Gravel Company. They both still have to be weathered.

    As you can see I have run out of room and need to get a bigger layout. I am going to move it to the garage onto a 10' x 12' layout.

    :wave: Thanks MasonJar.

    I still have 5 Walthers Buildings including the New River Minning Company, Western Coal Flood Loader, Rolling Mill, Empire Gas Works Coke Retort, and ADM Grain Elevator, to put on my layout and as you can see that thats not going to happen on this layout.

    I don't even have enough room to have running trains, Just hoppers and boxcars that sit there. :cry:

    I have to build shelfs this summer in the garage and get rid of all that crap firstsign1 sign1

    Thanks railroader9731. I do like the construction industry very much.

    The raod closed barricade are Blair Line and they are $7.00 for 2. A little on the pricy side but they look cool and give the scence more realism.

    The picture on the web site is not to good (sadly neither is mine, STUPID CAMERA. lol) but the come in white and orange stripes and black and white stripes. They also have road signs printed on thin plastic with wood posts for pretty cheap.

    not nearly enough trucks on that layout, and you call yourself a truck lover! I STILL SEE PAVEMENT! nah i'm joking, good stuff man! now all you need is one of those outrageously large distribution centers, with the blinking green lights.

    ahh, dash-8 is a good locomotive. i have the Conrail one. i'm curious, if you run yours as slow as human possible ( i meanyou can barely tell its moving) does the headlight flicker in sync with the sound of the motor ( which is also super quiet, but if you listen carefully, you can hear)?

    i was wondering if it was just mine.
