      Sanding house

      Scratch built this  house and tower using ideas from both tyco and pola buildings, building is part of and old pola Wells Fargo 2 story building. The Wells Fargo building was damaged in a hurrican and it became 3 building 1 was barn's texaco, 2 was under shed of bachmann coaling tower and third was the sanding house. Tower is made from evergreen styrene with bolt castings from Grant Line, roof is fron old scant line engine house, sand pit is a sized down wood gondola car top from Lionel "G", sand was foam painted and coated with powder cement then painted. Think I still have enough to do 1 more building with careful planning, Bill
