Just what we need, an OSHA representative on the job. They don't all have hard hats on either. You know, I just realized there is no compressor nearby for that 90 lb jack hammer to be working with. Might have to remedy that.

I picked up the black delivery truck the other day at Walmart for about $4.50. I always browse through the toy section to see if they have anything that I might add to the layout for a reasonable price. The Shell diesel tank is made from the tops of two spray paint cans and a cut off shotgun shell for the top hatch.

Came out looking good.

If you look at the one picture it looks like he is "watering" the box.

That's what I was thinking Ed.

Don't tell me I have to put a portalet on the job site as well. Man, this is going to exceed my cost estimate and eat into my profit. Let's see, I not only have to put a compressor on the job site to operate the paving breaker, now I need a portable can. Could be two additions if I can find an O scale portable can and a compressor. You guys keep it up...I'm sure there is more stuff you can come up with that I need to add. Anybody know where I might be able to get some traffic signals? Contributions will be accepted at my local address which will be given when any contributions are promised.

Just a few observations I noticed.

One thing I did notice is 2 of them don't have hard hats and none have safety glasses.

And here on the east coast everyone has to wear safety reflective vests now too.

Maybe a flag man should be on site too, along with a boss, where would we be if it wasn't for bosses.

Signs are needed saying WATCH OUT FOR THE TRAINS, one posted on each side minimum size should be 2'x2'.

The gang plank you made should have some kind of support under it on the long section where the wheelbarrow man is.
That is an unsafe work condition, it could collapse from the weight, it needs handrails on the sides too.
USW safety division has been informed.
They might show up with pickets, till it is fixed.

Expect OSHA to show up soon.
They have been informed.

Great job. I like the idea of using the bx wire. And the waterfall looked good. As I did not read through the whole thread yet, ed did forget one thing. In ny and NJ it is mandatory to have few no show mafia jobs. A few lawn chairs with some people drinking beer would work! Nice looking layout.

I purchased some Cat Tails on E-bay a couple of days ago and they came in today. Got them planted along my drainage ditch. You don't get too many for the money and those little suckers are expensive. I could use another pack of 24. They don't go very far.

The look really cool there, I do have one recommendation. If you get more, I'd make them more continuous, they don't normally grow in clumps.

Where did you find those, that's one thing I haven't seen yet?

That looks great, FP. I especially like the reflections in the little drainage creek.

GRJ, I will probably get more and spread them out a little more along the bank. Down here in Louisiana, where everything is wet and for the most part stays wet, Cat Tails do grow in clumps and in big bunches. I'd love to spread them out a little more, with a little more dense planting; however, those puppies are expensive!!
I found them on E-bay, under O scale scenery. The package says they come from Model Rectifier Corporation though.
