.

You can see the bottom of a water tank on the right side of this picture of the Central Florida S Scaler's modular layout.

.

Well, it might not be a water tower, but since you cannot see the top, who is to say?

.

.

Everybody just ignored my request last time, so I will try it again...

.

Show me a scene with an agricultural theme.

Requests for Farm and life in the country:

This may qualify. Every Fall we go to our Mt Cabin to get a deer. To while a way the time we play cards and have one or two . A good thing we do too as we haven't seen a deer in several years.

All right, Bob asked for a "rural" scene, not a farm scene.

This is pretty rural looking.

OK... I will continue with Bob's request.

Here is a manifest freight crossing a bridge somewhere in a rural setting.

.

You can tell it is rural because of the pick up truck.

.

Show me another train going over a bridge.

Rule 1: This is my railroad.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!
