Yard Lead Switching
0-6-0 #135 works a long string of boxcars on the yard lead at Hopewell Junction on an August day in 1925.
"Tallest switchstand I've ever seen..."

Interesting??? It is a 'Details West type one' which are supposed to be scaled quite well. Only modification is the added second vane for caution for the aliened route. That is no taller than the standard diamond that is on it as well.
Ray, I think this is a very fine scene, both compositionally and in the modelling. My eyes linger on the background rocks and the other details, but what really sets this apart for me are the rails in the grass in the foreground. Nice touch!! :-D
