    They are. I first started with wood and painting it. It was to thick and I had to paint it which took time and well, paint. Now I just install it since it is metal. The diameter is better too. :thumb:

    i dont know what # they are. we are doing 22inch radius if that helps. i think the switches are made from atlas. they are old ones we had and are reusing them from years ago.

    :eek: WOW, 7 months have gone by since I have posted in this thread. :cry: That just goes to show that I need to just stay home and work on my trains. LOL

    Here is a little update for you. The town had a funeral today. It turned out that the man that died was shot by his buddy. They were out hunting and drinking, two things that do not mix. As you can see the guy that shot him is still drinking.... the dead guys dog is at a loss and the whole thing is being over looked by the dead guy and his escort to the after life. The worst part is he doesnt have any other friends and his ma ma is the only other person there.

    Well have a look and feel free to leave our friendless dead guy a note of sorrow. sign1

    Next update I will show you the new project that is tearing up Container Street. They are buidling a new High Rise building and with all the construction going on it is going to cause havoc. There is a tower crane, road closures and traffic cones every where. Not to mention new pipes being installed supplies coming in for the new building and even a Police Officer directing traffic, WHAT A MESS!

    :wave:

    As promised, here is the next update. Here we see what happens when you mix alcohol and hunting. Turns out Steef pictured here:
    [​IMG]
    had gone hunting with his friend Bud. You have to pronounce Bud's name like the frogs from the Budweiser commercials.
    Turns out Steef got shot by Bud accidently of course while hunting wabbit with Steefs dog Einstein. Yeah they are from the hills as I am sure you guessed. So since the accident Bud is now Einsteins owner. Steef has a new friend named Grim, pictured with Steef above, and we also see Steefs mother at the funeral. Her name is Mabel. Sadly no one else came to Steefs funeral since he didnt have any other friends or family. All the pictures were courtesy of the local paper who has been following the story since the Sheriff wasnt sure if Bud, his second cousin, had shot Steef accidently or not. :twisted:

    Restless Undertakers was kind enough to donate their services for the funeral since Steef had no life insurance to cover his expenses.

    The graveyard was setup by my wife, she placed all the headstones, planted the grass and placed the trees we built together. She also placed the flowers and the dirt road the cars drive on. I think she did a damn good job! :)

    Combat, that is a AWESOME Scene!!! I love all the construction!!! You have some very nice stuff there. Love the tower crane, and the equipment. i see you got some Scale Scenics Cones and some BLMA Concrete Barriers. Both of them very nice products :mrgreen:

    NOW Where did you get those corrugated pipes? I need some more of those, but i cant seem to find them :eek: wall1

    Also, i like how you made that load of mesh re-bar, thats very cool!! :thumb: :thumb:

    Combat, things look nice and I enjoy a good story in the scenery. The only suggestion I have is that things look a touch shiny...a little dullcoat sprayed over the scene might eliminate it.

    The details look great...the wheelbarrows, cones, and such.
