Fresno light?

Fresno redux?
Doesn't really much matter what we call it.

Rather than have a boring old staging yard, we thought we'd tart it up a touch.
Caboose track, Locomotive escape pocket, 2 stall roundhouse with 2 exterior "garden" tracks.
Lineside buildings will populate the scene as well.
Water and oil column, sand, etc for the inbound roundhouse tracks, etc.
What I find amusing is that it's a simple yard and yet it requires 10 turnouts.
That's more than all the turnouts in Trevor's layout !

New stuff from YMW in time for ST Louis RPM

With the annual RPM in Collinsville weeks away, it's time to tempt you with some of the new items I'll have available at the show.
Once I return from the RPM these items and others will be listed on the website for purchase.
First up;
YMW - 257
Laser cut running boards for Intermountain SFRD reefers
With both styles of hatch platforms                         $8.00 USD

2 new etched parts
Etched airhose brackets
Secure these to the underside of the car and use a "U" of thin wire to clamp the airhose to the bracket, much like the prototype does.                               $3.00 USD

Etched cut lever brackets
For more modern cars, to hang the bottom actuated cut levers    $3.00 USD

We will have a couple of kits ready for sale as well.
This one is ready;

YMW- 114 DT&I ACF built postwar boxcar
The first kit to feature the ACF proprietary "Corrugated End" with the unique vertical row of dimples.                                       $60.00 USD

YMW-115 DL&W rebuilt autocar.
This model is still being finished, but it will be ready in time for the RPM.

The kits include all the things you've come to expect from Yarmouth Model Works.
Custom etchings, custom decals, laser cut running boards, correct trucks, etc.
The patterns for both models were 3D printed and we're very pleased as to how this process is working out for us.
Hope to see you in Collinsville!
