    Sorry, I don't know of a manufacturer but I'm intrigued..are you building a prison? I once considered using a long prison wall as a possible backdrop flat building.

    No, I have another idea. Did anyone from the forum participants watched the "New Amazones" film of one polish film- director? I have an imagination, that the former underground women colony in that film is now a fantastic underground spaceport to depart astronauts to another planet (from other fantastic films) in the anabiotic state. This very conducive to the sexual intimacy one- family house (http://www.piko.de/produkt_db/check.php?page=detail&grand_id=5&parent_id=1&child_id=8&id=61810) of PIKO is very suitable to be entered as the ground station for the elevator to get visitors and personnel to the underground spaceport. And the territory of the point where the rocket gets away from the underground has to be fenced by the subject of this thread.

    Latest Continental Modeller has an American layout ,"Twelfth Street Yard" by the Australian Capital Territory MRS - one of the photos on Page 461 features just that sort of fence - no Idea what they used - but maybe one of our members from the Antipodes can tell us? Superb layout BTW, really captures inner city feel

  7. TEP 60 There was a HO prison announced a couple of years ago by Faller(I think) complete with escaping prisoners.

    Many years ago I worked in an Underground Air Defence Bunker and the only bit visible above ground looked like a small cottage - the fact that about 40 cars were parked outside was a bit of a give away though

    So there are no prisons in H0 for sale, out of That Faller's year model?

    Have thought about adding a prison as a backdrop along the wall as Ralph mentioned.

    Southern railway served a prison in Atlanta, GA. The prison even had its own trackmobile!
    One track serves the prison's powerhouse. The other track serves the prison's 396,000-square-foot industrial division. On it there are a receiving dock for raw materials located outside the walls and a loading dock for finished products located within.

    Southern's principal shipment inbound to the prison's industry is baled cotton about 150 carloads per year. From this, the prison's textile mill annually produces about six million pounds of cotton duck.
