    Here is another little teaser from my not yet but getting closer to being complete water tower diorama. I just stop myself from lining up the cars and taking pictures.

    These are of most of my 2-Bay Lehigh & New England hoppers. All the coal loads are custom home made.

    First up is a custom painted and lettered hopper from an undecorated Athearn kit.

    The next one is a K&D/Athearn hopper

    The next three are all Atlas hoppers.

    Here is one of the hoppers posing in front of the trees.

    And one shot of the Atlas Billboard hopper

    Very cool Tom! I just noticed the yellow box on the pole in your 3rd pic. Is that a phone box? Who makes it? It looks great!

    Thanks again folks.

    Val the telephone poles are made by Life-Like. It is a set of 12 poles. On four of you can attach the call boxes, 4 have street light attachments, two have power trnasformers, and 2 have no attachments.

    Yep, you're right, Tom. You've been naughty.

    Naughty, naughty, naughty. Bad, bad, bad.

    For punishment, you'll have to...weather some more cars. :D

    And we'll need proof. (Nice work, by the way! :) )

    Thanks Steve for the compliments.

    I have begun to serve my sentence. I am building an Athearn Erie 40' Wood Boxcar and a Roundhouse Boston & Maine 40' Outside Truss Wood Boxcar. As required photos will be posted upon completion.
