Now that is too cool.

Remind me again, what is your chosen era? (Wondering if you'll chose to model vehicular traffic to/from and if so, would they be wagons or early powered trucks.)

Mike, it looks wonderful already!
I'm certain it will get even better as you progress with it.

Andre,

Thank you. My period is the 1880ís, so it will be wagons. Thatís going to be an adventure, not yet thought out!

Thank you, Greg! I confess to having some reservations until yesterday, when I set the coal shed on the new section. It looks better to my eye than I expected. I appreciate your confidence-building words.

I agree with Greg, et.al. The dropped punch-out looks good, and the fact that it's bigger than just the dock will help make it a real scene.

1880s eh?

Brother!

Wagons are cool. I fooled around and let Jordan go under before I start gathering wagons, so I'm sure when the time comes to address the lack, it will result in mucho $$$ for piddly little kits that used to cost a buck or two.

Ah well... t'was a dangerous job befur we took it, so's we know'd what we wuz gittin' into.

Thank you. Dave and Andre.

Dave, I was originally going to make a minimal extension but decided on more real estate to provide scope for added details, along lines you suggest.

Andre, I have one small wagon of unknown origin and a laser kit for a farm wagon, no longer available, but thatís it for now. An area to be explored.

I think the bandwagon had better be heavy duty for loads of coal.

If you have a Jordon farm Wagon, It should do. just modify it have a coal chute type opening on the tailgate.

Bob,

Unfortunately, turns out what I have is a buckboard, not a wagon.

However, I bought a Vector Cut wagon before that business went away. If I can find a source for wheels ó I have a couple of ideas to checkó I can use the kit as a template.

Mike

Mike, Check with Train Troll for wheels. And if you need some Jordan wagons, let me know. I probably have more than I can build...

Thank you for the Train Troll tip, Dave. It looks promising. Iím inclined to go the scratchbuilding route; thanks however for the Jorden wagon offer. Iíll keep it in mind.

Mike
