    Hey! I don't recognize any of those buildings! :confused: There should be at least two there that look familiar to me. I know, I know, they weren't very good and probably at the bottom of the trash pile by nowsign1.

    LOL.... I have both of them. They are sitting on the shelf above my desk as we speak. All of those buildings you see may make it into the final cut. I am willing to bet more then half do not. As far as yours, dont count them out just yet. :) You never know what I have up my sleeve. :)

    Now some building updates....
    These buildings are of a fire station and a Gravel company. Enjoy..... :)
    First up the Gravel company day and night. More lights will be added to it when its on the table surrounding the building giving it a more life like look. The building has been weathered, any guess on what I used? Do you even like the way it looks? Thanks for the comments!

    Now the fire station. There are lights in it as well. I will show them off later. :)

    Last but not least. I am going to take this boley truck and modify it so it is a service truck for my heavy equipment. I looked everywhere to find one ready made. It seems that HO scale stuff never breaks down because I couldnt find one made by anyone.

    Thanks for looking, feel free to leave comments. :)

    It seems that in that top shot where you split to go double over the bridge, if you were to take out the left hander and replace it with a right hander right where you come out of the curve, you could completely get rid of the double S and smooth that out a lot.

    Lots of track work accomplished, great job. Do the trains navigate through the S curve ok, I've heard S curves cause a few issues although I've never witnessed any problems in person. :wave:

    Well no new track layed for todays update, instead we have the dedication of the new fire house.

    The USFS thats U.S. Forest Service, for those that dont know, was on hand too.

    The building that holds the equipment does have lights in it. To bad it was daytime when I visited the station and you couldnt see them. :(

    Enjoy the pictures..... :mrgreen:

    Well now you've got to have a lake or a river for that boat and some mountains and pine trees for the forest service to patrol and take care of. The vehicles look like a mixture of "made for HO scale MRR'ing" and matchbox types. Are they?
