Hopefully you can see the image... On the left is a my auto salvage yard/scrap metal dealer.  I can't remember where I found them, but the stacks of squished autos are really nicely done resin castings, painted multi color and weathered.  I added some black thread to represent steel banding or cables to secure the loads in a gondola car.



If you can find them, they'd be a nice addition to your yard.

I have very similar scrap automobiles in N scale. Mine came pre-painted. At least one of the EBay sellers I got them from is known as  savonart . They have HO & N scale stuff at:

Check out the 4th, 16th and 23rd images on that link for examples.

Hope this is helpful.

I've been focused on other projects lately, getting things ready for some upcoming shows.  I was finally able to get back and re-zone/re-pave the lot, as well as the street across the tracks.
Next is to redo the ground cover, gravel and dirt.
