    I just got some pictures of the area of my layout that I worked on during the Christmas holiday

    This is Mitchell Metal fabricating and Welding. its a Walthers cornerstone kit with an add-on made from Design preservation modular parts. Beside it the costruction workers and making the parking lot bigger.

    Another view of Harlee and sons. I highly recommend these kits since all the details that you see in the yard (including the fence) and included in the kit.

    Nice scenes, Glen. I'm also a big fan of DPM buildings, particularily their modular walls. I also like your SW1200RS: is it brass or a modified Athearn? I built four of them from Athearn switchers, but, since I'm freelancing, mine don't have either the built-in number boards or the extended range fuel tanks.

    Thanks Wayne. I appriciate a compliment from a modeller of your caliber.

    if you like the DPM modulars, the large building in the background was built out of the Fedups freight building. I just re-aranged to walls to create My Wagner and Sons Transfer and storage.

    It is a modified Athearn that will probably be retired soon in exchange for a Proto 2000 unit that I'll be making the same mods to, with the exception of the fuel tanks and the winter hatch.

    Hi Glen, I like how you have an abundance of vehicles on your layout, it really helps convey a sense of activity in your industrial scene. Great job. That reminds me...I need to get down to the LHS, the new HO vehicles that are coming out are amazing. Stuart.
