    Tank Town, Colorado

    Here is my version of a small, fictitious town in Southern Colorado. The town grew around a water tank used by the small railroads in the area. And the rest is history.

    Tank Town, Colorado at Night

    The pungent smell of wild sage fills the chilly night air.

    Thanks guys.

    TrainClown:The models are all HO. Tank Town is staged on a table top with sand paper as ground. I made the trees,the fence, the back drop was done by photoshop. I didn't take any close-ups, sorry.

    In the past two months I posted shots of my 2 engines, a shay and a heisler.

    Woodie: I think you are confusing Tank Town, Colorado with Petti-Coat Junction, Mate. This is 'Old Colorado' where men are men and woman are...?

    "Der ain't no Bobby Jo's and Billy Rays out here. But we got Square-Jawed Jake, Bulldog Hiram and Snake-Eyed Pete. We eat meat three times a day and der ain't no godless vegetarians to be seen. No siree." :) :) :)
