Frank, amazing work, as always. What would have made the sign perfect is if you had angled the one on the backside the other way so that the reflection matched the original. That would have mad e the illusion even better (if possible).
Cheers,
Dave

Frank, Here's a little support for leaving the stairs on the tank alone if you want.

It's a real bridge and no, nothing is missing or happened to it...but it sure looks like something is or did :)

I don't know Bill, but I wouldn't trust that bridge. That looks hinky.

Guys, if there was a A-frame even above or below the walkway i wouldn't had said a thing.

It's only make-believe

Hi Frank,

Well done.

Jeff

Well Bob, danged if you didn't guess it, it's an "A" frame after all.

Jeff, it was a close call on those stairs but I got them under control.

When it came to building the supports for the elevated walkway it was go BIG or go home. I made an ďAĒ frame bent. I sincerely hope this quells the angry mob.







I added a few detail items such as this hatch at the bottom of the silo.



And the hatch at the top of the silo.



And for those of you who can remember the significance behind this one, just a little jab at 1920ís humor.



Iíve added the piping system for transferring the grain from the pit below the railcar up the elevator and over to the silo.

Looks A-OK to me Frank. I really like the rusting of the tank.

Frank,

The stairs and piping are very cool; they provide interesting complexity to the building.

The way the pipe sticks up like that I suspect it would not survive long on my layout. Fortunately itís on your ever more amazing layout, not on mine.

Bob, thanks and you get an ďAĒ for guessing the type of bracing.

Thanks Rick.

Mike, next is the LED lights. That will add some complexity. Fortunately the building sits pretty far back on the layout so itís relatively safe. The tug boat is in harmís way thatís why I added the people bumpers.

Yeah I wonder if any of our younger members get the gin tub. But with that crowd from Suncoast it will probably always be empty!

Tim, thatís one of the details I pulled out of your grab bag of parts.

I donít know Mike, weíre getting too old to be tying one on like we used to. Youíre right, I was surprised to see the haha take so long to be noticed.

Frank,

Just went through the whole thread looking at the pictures posted. All I can say is WOW. All that done in less than a year. I see I'm going to have to go back and read how some of those projects were done. Lot's of ideas there.
