ACL 1504,
              I must say after looking at real railroad wiring all day on locomotives and wayside equipment boxes, then relaxing with your build wiring pics here on this thread.  I must say I see almost no difference, you must have had some real railroad wiring experience sometime in your life eagh.  Very good work my friend.  I'm gonna show some of this pics to my boss and say to him "we need to hire this guy a.s.a.p.".  Now, you know the rest, of the story!  KP-out...

Thom,

Thank you for the support. I don't think my wiring is all that neat but it is functional.

Mark,

Thank you. By my own admission, it could be a little neater.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I've been working on a few structures for the South Tahope area.

Here is where I plan to place Whalen Apiaries. The scenery and road will have to be slightly moved but it will work.

This structure won't have any interior or interior lights so the walls weren't painted black.  There will be two LED lights. One over the office door and one under the bay door canopy (not yet in place)

It is going to look real nice there Tom. I like the idea of selective interior lighting - it can be overdone.

Hey Tom:

Looks like those two guys have a home on the layout. Can't wait to see um finished with scenery in place.

John,

Thanks, I agree. There will be 14 structures in this area just south of the river. Eleven are already in place, two are under construction and one is yet to be scratch built.

Lighting is my least favorite part of any build but I can't argue with the results.

Tom  ;D

Karl,

I believe these two will fit in perfectly. I still have one to scratch build. It will be a scratch/kit bash of FSM Fox Run Milling.
