      Boulders as track end bumpers? Protoypical!

      Yeppers, boulders as track end bumpers are indeed certifiably prototypical -- if the Swiss do it you know it is legit!

      I had a brick as a temporary track-end bumper, but certain un-named people ran through it anyway and off the end of track.

      If there's anything this place has, it sure has a cast of characters.

      We have a big feather rock at the end of one of our sidings where the Low Rider train parks.

       

      See it at 2:04.

      My granddaughter did that same thing, ran through a brick.  Its a good thing the loco was tough.

      LOOK !!! Do you see the large red brick over there!  Maybe if they only spoke Poultryese he would have stopped in time!

      You need to dig down so half the brick is in the ground. I got lazy and just drove a wood stake in the ground at the end of some sidings.
