Could use a few extra 'townsfolk' :D 'tis looking a little like a ghost town.

And going back to the question of the gallows.... if you have one, it doesn't have to be 'in use'. That way, it shouldn't offend anybody.


Thanks

i will be getting a stagecoach to go outside the Stables

Just an observation Mozzer: Do you think the buildings might benefit from a little weathering? After all, in the prototype location, they would be subjected to the scouring effects of wind-blown sand as well as rain and being bleached by the sun. They just look a little "new" at the moment. Hope you don't mind me mentioning this.

Did a Web search to day for Coombe Rock & found this info
Coombe Rock is An alternative name for a solifluction gravel
Which is a heterogeneous, unsorted mixture of angular rock fragments in a matrix of clay or silt. Many such gravels form featureless spreads at the foot of higher ground, but they can take fan-like forms

So now i have a load for my trains Just need some open wagons

Hey mozzer, there seems to be a little something missing from your name...

Looks great though, have you a production line for those wagons? Look great!
