wbg pete,

This is just what I needed to see. One of next projects on my layout is a harbor and I honestly don't know where to start. I have so many ideas in my head. Yours looks great! I think mines will need to be a bit more modern, whatever that means for a harbor. With that being said I'm sure some elements of the past won't hurt if included.

Checked in late on this thread.

Alan excellent as usual.  I have a question about the yellow wire apparatus around the wheel.  Does that act as a wheel chock or is it a guard to keep the wheel from running over something?

Mel, great job on the pedestrian crosswalk.  Is that scribed sheeting or individual strips and how did you level it to the top of the rails?

Pete your layout is top notch. I can't believe I've never asked but what did you use for benchwork?

Steve, another foray into the real world. 

Joe, the white and gray seem pretty realistic for the fuel depot.  Maybe some paint on the corrugated siding, piping and hoses.

Joe,

It's actually a narrow street and vehicle ramp which is the entrance to the small downtown area that I had room to model. The layout terrain and elevations are made from extruded pink foam that is lightweight and easy to carve. The cobblestone streets are from sheets of embossed paper that were cut into sections to simulate the various patterns in which cobblestones were laid, then painted and weathered. The O gauge wood planking across the tracks (available straight and curved from Blair Line) was trimmed to size leaving room for wheel flanges - the way it was done on real railroads. The center rail protrudes very slightly above the planking.
