Those are some hefty door knobs on that trailer!
Looks like I'll be adding some of these goodies to the bits and pieces drawer...

These are the best looking N Scale products I have seen in a while. A bit pricey, but hel it's brass and detailed. I'm getting the yard tower, looks like the SP yard in Fresno (now UP) I am modeling and I was
going to scratchbuild it - No way - It rocks!

Possible side railings for a turntable bridge might make those additions a whole bunch easier .

Stairs with railings attached , make life easier , as well as strengthen the steps .

Winners , both . Ordered 2 of each .

Lee, I think those are the new ADA accessibility door-opening push buttons, for the sight impaired.

Bob, thanks for the trailer! I hope the scans helped out.

When's the next time you'll be in Timonium or around the Baltimore-DC area?

Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Don't know,
I am going to Amhearst this time which automatically rules out Timonium. Brad will be there though and he will have the brass with him. Really excited about Amhearst. I'm got into the main hall near the front door. My first time too!!

That yard tower could be used to build a prison - hum.

Can't remember where I saw the photos, but there were some flat car moves through or to northern Virginia where the loads were pre-cast/built concrete prison cell blocks, which were to be laid like a Lego building set. You could have your prison and make it a rail-served industry.

Bob, Maybe include interior furniture, like the Yesteryear Creations fire lookout tower did?

Bob - I can take some shots today, imagine that I live a block from the yard. Do you need all four sides? There is an HO manufacturer of the actual Fresno Yard tower.

Muir Models made the Fresno Yard Tower in HO:
