Album: MP488 - Bluffs Yard

New fuel pad, fuel spill collection trays and mats, support/guard posts made from old rail, grade crossings for MOW hostlers and their equipment, and buried enginehouse tracks. The fuel pipe was heavily kitbashed from a pair of American Limited Models fuel cranes, while the fuel spill collection trays are scratchbuilt from 0.010" styrene and Scale Scenics mesh. The fuel spill mats are garden weed cloth.

The yellow post in the foreground, and the grey one in the upper left with the fire extinguisher, are sections of code 55 rail to match the prototype's use of rail for these purposes here.

The oil spills on the two adjacent enginehouse tracks are India ink wash applied with a dropper.
