I really like it and the detail on it. I think it's been outside for almost 2 years now. I would have to go back through my pictures to make certain though. I don't think Karl makes bridges anymore. A while back he had posted that they were moving and he sold off all his g scale stuff. I've not seen him post on the facebook group since then.

Try these folks: Stock Drive Products http://www.sdp-si.com/ and W. M. Berg www.wmberg.com
I am sure one of those two will have what you need. I am sure that even the Chinese purchase from somewhere, and it would not surprise me to find that both of these folks are in reality manufactured in China.

Then a smart guy said why not make the zebra stripe much "finer", and then you have less of an alignment problem. That development made quite an improvement in the alignment requirements.
These things are somewhat "tacky" is it's pretty rare for them to shift unless the lcd actually comes loose from it's mounting.

We have a small pond that attracts Coyotes, mostly to drink, but they don't bother much. Your solution looks like it works for you. I hope hope your next door abandoned house problem gets resolved for you soon. Terrible!

Are you going to but an interior , like beds and a pole?
No interior at all. It's typically not visible. I did sort of an interior on Strong Groceries, but it's very difficult to see, even with the large display window.
Now if it had electric lights that would be a different story.

Packaging has been improved and plastic quality has improved.
However, I do not like some of the 'gaudy/bright' colors. But LGB always said they make toys, not models.

But neat video of 315. Thats me hooking the steam line up to the pile driver. Narrator error, the steam line for the pile driver comes off its own "Steam Tap" called "The Monkey tail" I don't know why it's called that.
Time to hit the rack for a few hours... I'll do some follow up pic's soon...

But on Korm's side of the argument, my one LGB tender would climb the rails on my one curve. It was the only car to do so. But it was because the rails were narrow in gauge at that point. So I did have to fix the track, so that one car would behave.
So it is possible its the rails being somewhat "off" is interacting with those cars. But my fist inclination would be to try and fix the cars. less

Host an open house and let him know about it and you too may find a nice video of your railroad on YouTube too.
Of course more has been added to our railroad since then.

More sales should result in more profit in a well run company.
So, I would not worry Alan.
