    It looks like the crew of C&HV CL-5( the Columbus-Logan local) went dead on the law as the unit was parked in the clear on a industrial lead.

    Chessie4155, did that recent article in MR about creating tarp covered loads inspire you?
    I was intrigued about it myself but haven't done anything.

    Packers#1, looks like you're developing a freelanced road with the light blue and yellow units. The light blue is similar to my own freelanced road.

    Ralph, it's actually a neutral grey and clear yellow scheme. the unit is painted neutral grey, then a yellow stripe is added. BTW, forgot to say in my first post:

    I just love the warnings on the Centerbeam cars. All the BC Rail ones in town have NOKL reporting marks, which seems a long way to go to get cars to lease...

    I came up with an idea to reuse some old fence from my last layout. What do you think?

    [​IMG]

    Or should I just build a square-wire fence from scratch?

    It does look a little big, but I wonder if most of that isn't the camera angle making it look bigger than it would looking at with real eyes.

    It's in the foreground so it looks bigger than it is. It's only 4 scale feet (0.5") high.
