Ooh, more please!!! What an interesting subject for a layout!!


I like the big 'safety' notice. I once went to a factory that made "Zip-up" Scaffolding Towers, and a big sign in that place said "Remember - Someone's life depends on your welding!". Food for thought....

The Scenecraft range is worth keeping one eye on as a US modeller, most of the structures are very British looking as you'd expect, but some of the industrial bits are likely usable, and some details. My favourite at the moment is they have some nice aircon units for building roofs/walls.
