    That's a fine group of model buildings. I like these half overgrown tracks - they look very natural.

    A suggestion: How about some spilled sand below the tower and around the rails? Just an idea... ;)

    Ralph's for fun!

    I like it! What did you make the sand container out of?

    sheet styrene... for the container portion... for the elevator part... I took some of those markers they use for buried phone lines and bent it into shape... (Hope no one digs there oops!! :) ) the ladder was from an ho signal.. but when I measure it the rungs were a little less than 1 scale foot so I figured it would work.. the top filler cap was an ho traffic cone cut down.. the legs were ho traffice sign posts :) so far I have a track transfer building... z-11, sports cabin, sand dispenser, and a track maint. shed all for a whopping $8 :)
