    planeshavings42 they where done from a real photo both of the bridges are real in life my dad told me he took the pics i have of them back in the late 1980's out on the mid west when he was a trucker he then took then and built them for his layout and when they where finshed he changed his mind on them and didn't want to get rid of them so he keeped them sitting on a shefl in the train room and when i started my plan for my new layout he told me i could have them i just cleaned them up and fixed some parts that broke off over the 4 years they where sitting around and then i put a new paint job on them and as for the switcher in the last photo i just got that running after 2 years in my to fix box just found a motor that fit i might re paint it in norfolk and southern colors or a dull gray and just add the norfolk and southern logo to it

    Hey Scoob,

    Just curious. What type of yard is that, and how many tracks?

    Do you have a humpyard on this layout?

    Thanks.

    Those are some heap-big railcar servicing buildings. Six stalls, wow. I've only got two on the one I'm building.
