RJ;

I kept wondering "Why so many switch towers?" Then I realized that they were your outdoor light fixtures. Ho boy! Dummy me! Ha! Ha!

Great train,

You and I belong to the same club!
Those could be pretty good switch towers with a small stairway or ladder from the ground up to the base of the light.

I'm not sure how many hoppers I've got now? We used a bunch as center piece"candy dishes" back in May. I think I ahuled 18 of them to NYC then to Ellenville, NY and home again. I also know I've picked up a few more since then. The bulk of the rail traffic thru here is Unit Coal trains and Tank trains. I've looking forward to making up some relatively long trains!

Now that is a good Idea making one of the path lights into a switch tower. I could do one at the far end where my reverse loop is and just one light there. Thanks for the tip. Later RJD
