Don, I think they use truck-sized vacuum cleaners to empty them now. So no place to dump it is OK in the modern era, anomalous before maybe 1970?

They don't always dump em', the furniture plant in town has one sitting on a flat roof and somehow after it had sucked up all the dust from the planers it was the sent to the furnace. Most of the entire complex was heated that way.
Thanks Rhett!

Mike,

I can't agree with Jon more when he said "That spot looks like it was made for it." Very nice indeed!

Well I got my windows glazed and as you can see N scale windows are so small if the light doesn't hit them just right you can't tell. Bruce was worried that if a car got away on the pallet company siding it would go right across the alley and into the side of Tellico Gap Trading Post so I made a stop with a couple of pieces of railroad iron and an old tie. Also got some of the chainlink fence in.

Hmmmmmm, I need to straighten some of the barbwire on top of the fence and fill a gap or two under it. Darn those close-up photos!

I agree but the barbed wire isn't bad, I've seen it like that and with the chainlink tubing bent and mangled. The fencing on the bottom does look a bit high. Truth is photos show stuff that you would not ever see or notice viewing it with the human eye. My wife complains about my digital camera. She claims it shows to many flaws I don't know what flaws she could be referring to? She is now even more wonderful and beautiful than when we married

Mike, I like the wood bumper that you made and the fencing looks great (with the touch ups you intend to make.) As Rhett said, the barbed wire is quite prototypical as is. In fact, you could drape a branch from that tree over the sagging part of the barbed wire and call it done.

What did you use for the barbed wire?

Thanks guys. Bruce Gold Metal Models makes it, it is etched stainless steel. They are usually found in the super detailing parts section of the Walthers catalog. I do plan on straighting and lowering the fence some but the wire will probably still be a little bit bent up.

I was getting tired of landscaping the pallet company so I went on a side quest. Unlike the furniture company which can only be seen from the track side Macon Pallet's truck loading docks and parking lot as well as the alley and road in are clearly visible so I wanted some company vehicles. If you can't read the MPC on the doors don't feel bad, they are a #4 font and the whole sign is 1/8th inch high by 5/32nds long.
