Another site for workers, please.

Lots of people work at Consolidated Rock Products. This scene is on the HO scale layout at the Kentucky Railroad Museum.

Show me another place where people go to work.

Here's the Parcel Post Annex where tons of mail are sorted to and from railroad mail cars and dispatched to highway vehicles. About 600 little plastic people work in here 'round the clock.

 another railway mail or express car or postal facility.

 

A Royal Mail train in the  'new red livery'.  At the time there was no ready made decals available, so I had to make my own.

Next -  More mail trains or facilities.

The STRATTON AND GILLETTE will feature a short mail train. The models are currently unpainted.

The mail train will be pulled by a USRA light 4-6-2 and feature an express reefer and two mail cars. I am not sure if I will be adding an RPO or not.

Show me something else related to the mail.

That is an amazing model. The control sticks even look like they have proper wear on the paint.

The grass these cows are grazing in is super green. It looks like it might even have magical properties.

Show me another wall/fence and livestock.

That is good stuff Ed.  I thoroughly enjoyed that oneYesStick out tongue

Hopefully this counts.  It's the first lot of them made.  And the jagged rock pincushion carved to stick them in.

Made out of cake trees that were given to me by a very nice person I really appreciate.

They started out looking like this before the tops were cut off and stacked on dowls, then painted and flocked.

There are so many of them to work with in the future I almost feel greedyLaughPirate

 

More anything that is Christmas orientated or Thanksgiving like please
