    My 12 year old godson who lives out of state gave me this Bachman pool scene last year after visiting us and most enjoying my model railroad and the times I took him swimming at my local health club. He sent me this gift for Christmas that combines both interests. It took me a little time to find a good spot for the scene on my layout but I finally decided the farm house family needed a swimming pool more than they needed a chicken coop! :) I altered the scene to accomodate my godson's gift and added these cool LPBs who are soaking up the sun and having a ball! I'm emailing this pic to my godson so he can see it before his next visit.
    Pass the suntan lotion!

    As a Nationally Certified Pool Operator, as long as your Ph. is between 7.2 and 7.6, your chlorine at 1-2 ppm, and you have a life ring, shepherd's hook, backboard and a State Certified CPO within 15 minutes of your pool's location, I'm happy for ya. Don't forget to post a Pool Rules sign using lettering at least an 1 1/2" tall, paint "NO DIVING" in 4" letters near every depth mark---you DO have those, don't you.... blah, blah blah....:p :p :p :D :D :D :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    That is looking great Ralph. I just finished a scratch built house with a pool in the back yard with diving board, several people in bathing suits. I have two cameras and neither one will take close ups. Don't have enough moola to buy another one that will. :cry: :cry:

    Looks great Ralph!

    I'm in a lab coat in a warm room, and I'd be ready to jump in right now if I were about 1/100 the size I am!

    :D :D :D

    Thank you Ralph, Yes you are right, you could find this symbol everywhere along tracks in China:)

    I like your kits. We also have Bachmann here in China (actually it is almost the only make in China market) but do not have so many kits/accessories available. The market volume here is very limited that the manufacturers are not willing to invest much:( Admiring...

    BTW, is it of HO scale or N scale? Majority proportion of modelers in China are playing with HO scale because Chinese trains are made in HO scale only. But it seems too large for the layout.

    I think the scene is wonderful but I think you should post one more sign. Welcome to our OOL notice there's no P in it and lets keep it that way.

    Its HO marnlq. Belg, I clearly recall from childhood a sign on a neighbor's pool that read "Please don't pee in our pool, we don't swim in your toilet".....hadn't occurred to me how much of a problem this must be that professional signs needed to be made! :)
