    I'm in too, I just don't know what I'm going to build. I got one idea, but I need a plan before I commit...

    Hmm...I might attempt a cereal board piece of On3 rolling stock...or perhaps a Lionel type toy car...but with On3 trucks so that it looks really odd surrounded by finescale stuff.

    The coolest thing I can think of would be to find an old motor...maybe some gears...a rubber band...and to produce a locomotive out of trash...a diesel would probably be feasible...but I think I'll aim for a piece of rolling stock.

    I've been trying to think of a project and finaly settled on some sort of loading system, pipes and such, for this oil facility. Since the tanks and the fuel barge were made of junk drawer and other misc. parts the loading system should fit right in! :)
