    Thanks Gary, and Ed. The water tower is a Walther's kit and comes with 3 of them. Personally, I would rather have had just 1 and paid 1/3 the price!:D :D

    cheers
    :D Val

    D'oh!

    It was really nice to meet Spitfire in person....

    Her layout is taking shape and I look forward to attending operating sessions...

    This Gauge Boxcar - World Tour has been a great idea and an oportunity for us to get to know each other...

    Hind-sight being 20/20.... I should have brought my diarama and had it set up against Val's beautiful sky backdrop...

    It would have been better than the white cinderblock wall that I used...

    I'm sure that we'll run into each other at Den of Trains and at other events....


    Spitfire, Remember that it's not a very long stretch from a diarama to a module.... And an easy kitbash from HO to On30! :D :D :D Nudge, nudge, wink, wink! And modules are great because you don't have to commit all your resources towards them.... Keep the HO layout at home, but make an OCMOD for bringing out to meets. Hint, hint, hint...

    And a large HO water tower makes a great kitbashed On30 watertower. Incase you weren't sure what to do with those extra water towers... :D :D :D
