    Woodland Scenics makes all sorts of LPBs in all scales. Usually they come out in larger scales first, but they are catching up in N. If you can't find them in your LHS, then just about any dealer with a net store can get you what you need. For N you can get them here at a LHS for around $8 US for a package of around nine figures. The net stores are around a dollar cheaper. Try Tainworld or Walthers.

    Trainworld is: http://www.trainworld.com/

    and Wathers is: http://www.walthers.com/

    I know, I know, but kinda surprising none the less....

    I have gotten several packs of LPB's from Walthers sale catalog in the past.

    Ausien,

    I'll check my LHS tomorrow. (Gotta go gets some bits and pieces). They have a big revolving rack sorta thing of LPB in all sorts of guises. Can't remembetr brand name, and IIRC, are NOT cheap. (But very well detailed). I'll see what they've got and what brand they are.

    Don't let me forget!!! :eek:

    Here's a couple of LPBs doing the big sleep after ending up on the losing end of a shoot out with the local marshal.

    Got me bits for the wooden road bridge I'm gunna make. :)

    And the LPBs are Woodlands Scenics "Scenic Accents" LPBs. All sorts of ones. But as I said, ain't cheap. $19.50 AUS for 6 LPBs. Didn't really have time to look if they had exactly what you want, but there is quite a wide range. :wave:

    Ausien,

    The bits I got were balsa bits to scratch build a wooden road bridge over Garahbara Cutting.

    Across here.

    If you look closely, you can see the road cutting coming in from the right, half way along the hill.

    Wish me luck!! :cool: I ain't been a bridge engineer or builder before! :eek:
