    Great to be able to get together with other Gaugers I'm sure. Wish we had a larger group around here.

    Nice pics as well.:wave::wave:

    That is impressive Val, nice work. Can you tell me which figure do you use in message 23?
    And what about the broken can in the first picture in that message. Sergio

    Sergio, that's a Preiser figure which I think I got from one of their large unpainted sets. I think, if memory serves, the broken drum is from Scale Structures or Selly Finishing Touches. It's hard to remember actually, because my LHS has tons of detail parts like this and every time I'm in there I pick some up.

    Exactly what I am doing Staging, that and now that spring is here, the sidewalks are covered in sand. Up here they do not use salt, just sand. I have been out filling pails and I now have three 4L ice cream containers full of sifted sand. As well as six containers full of Coffee grounds.

    Your use of real dirt on the yard tracks looks good. It reminded me that I've got a big container of real dirt that I scooped up from work (that's a while ago!): almost like powder, after being pulverized by hundreds of heavy trucks. If I can remember where I stashed it, there are a couple of sidings on my layout that might look better if they were sunken into the ground a little more.
