    sign1 sign1 sign1 Hahahahahahahahahahah

    Now you are givin me all sorts of ideas. I have to try to make those barrels somehow. I think I might have to try to use the caps on the pencils, you no the metal drum. They might work good. As for the fence, yes I am goin to have to do that too. Also the coffee stirs to, and the lumber. think I might use toothpicks to matches.

    Got any ideas for plywood stacks????
  6. not bad eh as for plywood i was thinking thin balsa wood cut into 4x8 sheets

    Ya, I think it might be a pretty crazy one. But it would only cost about $150.00 to maybe $200.00. OK THATS STILL A-LOTsign1 but i think that it would look so dam cool.

    What do you use for your roads??

    I put some black sand paper down on my layout but you can see were every piece is connected and theres a lot of them.

    So I was thinking of getting the flexable road made by Busch. It says its very flexible and goes round curves nicely and it comes in big rolls, that way, I will have less seems to cover up.
  10. ive used hydracal and ami or aim road bed ive also used railroad ballest for driveways

    There's an outfit called Hamilton Model Works that sells Hydrocal castings of bricks.
    Part #2532 is 2 piles on CMA plastic skids @ $2.25 unpainted or $4.50 painted
    Part #2533 is 2 piles of clay drainage tiles, on skids @ $2.50 or $4.50
    Part #2534 is 2 piles of clay chimney flue tiles, on skids @$2.50 or $4.50
    Part #2535 is 4 stacks of corner wall cap tiles, on skids @$2.25 or $4.50
    Part #2536 is 2 stacks of clay tile wall caps, on skids @$2.50 or $4.50

    I picked up a catalogue at a train show last fall: they have some interesting items in Hydrocal and a few in white metal. They also carry parts from many manufacturers like Tichy, Grandt Line and Juneco.
    The Company is basically a one-man operation, run by Brian Martin. You can contact him by 'phone or fax: (905) 549-5054
    by E-mail: hamilton.model.works@sympatico.ca

    There is no minimum order, payment is by cheque or money order. Shipping in Canada is $6.95 (U.S. orders $10.00 U.S. funds)

  14. ive also found model railstuff has alot of palletized items

    I can't believe I forgot about model railsstuff.wall1wall1wall1 THANKS

    As for the other one, i am going to have to check them out to. Sounds like they could have some nice things.

    Anyone else with loads??? Lets make this so that no-one has to think what to make for loads on their flats and trailers, all they have to do is look at these few pages. :)

    Sorry Truck, the web site I posted earlier doesn't work. If you type in Becker Model Train you'll find it.
