    Those are Pegasus Hobbies trees, they come 3 to a box, shiny plastic. The shorter 3 are 7 3/4" tall, and the taller 3 are 8 1/2" tall. So they're good for HO & up. However, Woodland Scenics and Grand Central Gems also make some.

    EDIT If anyone knows of any more kit palms, please link them, I need quite a few myself, and don't want them all the same!

    The two Challengers and BigBoy is HO and owned by a visitor at the museum who stop by to run them. His layout isn't large enough to run them on like this.

    I also have the Challenger and also Alleghany in O gauge !

    Hey Guys,:wave: :wave: :wave:
    I thought I would jump in with some pictures of my service yard area. This area is the nearest to being complete. Seems like every time I get to a point where that it looks finished I end up ripping it up and starting over.:rolleyes: But I like the way this is turning out.:D :D

    Aloha

    hi all---great shots everyone---since i've discovered different modes on my digital camera,i've been taking a lot of pictures using sepia---i'm still not sure whether i prefer colour or basic black and white---you be the judge
