    Ralph's for fun!

    Automobiles at the end of their days are lifted into the car shredder at the left and turned into small metal shards to be loaded into waiting gondolas. A flat truck with more cars arrives on the right.

    Great mini-scene Ralph but I don't see any track leading into the yard.

    Flattening all of those cars must have been fun! Looks good!

    Thanks guys! Robin, the track runs behind the green shredder and the silver pile of scrap. You can see part of a black gon just to the right of the scrap pile. Jetrock, I really didn't crush a few dozen model cars....what I did was take little rectangular pieces of foil, wrap them around a couple of HO cars to get the basic shapes, flattened the foil, and then painted the pieces various colors. Scrap on the cheap! :)
