Did just a bit of detailing. Had a small hill at the south edge of town that was just brown. I ballasted the nearby tracks and added a bit of green, no biggie, but it can now count as scenery... well I hope so anyway....

Thanks Mike, don't have too many hills that I can plant anything on, and flatland on my layout is too sparse and way too expensive to not allow developers to do with as they wish. Icon_lol

My father, who taught geography, told me that farmers and developers like the same sort of land -- flat, no features, few trees, etc. Farmer additionally cares about the soil.

Just a baby step in progress, but I've been needing some decent looking vehicles, and so I found a couple of police paddy wagons, both painted alike, but thought one would look better as an armored car. These seem just a bit oversized for N scale, but vehicles like this are a bit larger anyway.

The cop car looks a little more like a EMT with those colors. Love the armored car, that was a great idea!

Thanks guys, you're right Mike, that would make a fine EMT vehicle. We need that more than a paddy wagon in our small town. It's heading to the paint shop as we speak....

Well, the town consul thought that since there was only one town drunk, and he had a key to the jail, and the crime rate would be zero if it wasn't for those moonshiners, they voted to trade their paddy wagon for a much needed ambulance. Here's a few shots of it. Strange how closely it resembles the paddy wagon in construction, thank you Mike for that.

Any reason the EMT's are following the armored car? Are they expecting an armed robbery? What kind of neighborhood is that anyway? Big Grin

Well, it's payday in Santa Maria and the armor truck has the payroll. Those EMT's are just being a bit suspicious since that road leads to the train station and the town hall is in the other direction. It was just a wrong turn at a busy intersection. Waiting As I pointed out, our crime rate would be zero if it wasn't for Otis, the town drunk, and a few moonshiners that get caught thanks to Andy Taylor, our town sheriff, and his assistant, Barney Fife who was  snatched up when their series was canceled.
