    Here is the crane to move the loads around and I added a cabbose that caught on fire and as many cars as I could. I plan to go to the train club I belong to and grab some fencing material. I still need to add the line to the crane that is why there is no bucket. Thanks for all the advice.

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    That's really coming along nicely! Can't wait to see the fence. You might try 'bashing an old boxcar into an office for the place... :thumb:

    I used to work in a scrap yard & their are 2 types of crane used. The main cranes have a 4 fingered claw instead of a bucket. You could scratch this out of a piece of brass rod or some wire. The secondary cranes have big electromagnets which you could make out of balsa or plasticard..

    Good job...

    What a pile of junk! Looks great! :) I agree that a shack office or converted box car would add to the scene.

    That sounds like a good idea because I have plenty of old box cars laying around.

    how do you make the rails look rusty?

    That was the fist step right after you lay the track. All you do is find or buy a rust color spray paint and spray the rails with it or you can just air brush it.
