    Tomkat, I would love to do something like that, it would go perfect with my layout!!

    I have something similar near my house, sept I think there getting ready to pack up and leave becase all the hills are pretty much ground down and the area around the plant is all developed now with houses and businesses :rolleyes:

    Do you mind if I save your pics for reference for something in the future?

    Hi all..!! Great pics everyone. It's really a ball seeing what you all are doing..!! Thought I'd share a little something I just finished for the layout....

    [​IMG]

    It's not at its place on the layout...I just didn't want to take its pic on the Plywood Flatlands...

    If you're all interested in how it got that way, here's a link to the kit building thread...
