  1. On page 48, there is a portable ladder to access the hatch of a tank car. Is this a commercial model or scratchbuilt? I want one… to help model the other end of the Safety Kleen operation (where they load the tank car from trucks).

  2. I’d like to do this but I’d like to add a second level to it… No helix! This would probably be my top level. Any suggestions?

  3. Excellant layout and scenery. This is the best corn field I have seen by far.
    How do you make the corn plants or where to purchase. The grain elevators are from my home town,
    Lexington Nebraska. Thanks.
