Hey John, that looks great! I have a question for you. What size rail are you using for the tracks? I saw the picture where you showed the controllers cables linking to rail and was just wondering what size it is. I’ve always struggled to get something to match 28mm reliably and have been considering other settings that would use rail (28mm American Old West and maybe ACW with Sharp Practice). Great work again! Love the look and good luck at CANCON! Sounds like it will be a great game!

Beautiful work as always! Did you work from any examples or images? If not, you've a fine eye for destructive detail!

Thanks Capt Fortier, Googled "signal box images in France" for a general idea for the signal box but the destruction detail I just made it up as I went.
