Cracking set up. I've seen this close up and it's very, very good.

Unfortunately I ran out of time to pop back and chat, I only gave the table a cursory glance on the way to grab a coffee. :?

I'll apologise I  saw the game from behind the green building and the undertakers. From that angle the cattle seemed at odds with the table. In fact I think I said they looked Naff. I was wrong they definitely look the part when seen from that side of the train.

Mark.

I seem to always get this oddly mixed feeling of sereneness and dread when viewing Serenity Flats - clearly a sad day for some folks what with the hearse carrying a load. 

And, congratulations, I see you've properly based up your track. 

Cattle drive?  What cattle drive?  I see cattle in stock pens awaiting shipment east to the slaughter houses.  And that likely means a lively time tonight when those drovers, freshly paid, get to spending their money.  Hope there are enough lawmen in town to maintain order.

Everything you would expect in a cow town.

Great setup.

Hi Dave it was great to finally see Serenety in the flesh on Saturday, as I said at the time you have made a good job on the mdf builings, improving them beyond recognition in a lot of cases.
I was really dissapointed that i forgot my camera, yours was one of the stand out games in my opinion.
Cheers

Hi, yes indeed they are ERTL Longhorn (took a while to track them down on ebay) and Herefords (usually easier to find). Did a little bit of work on them , painting in eyes , a wash and a highlight if required, easy enough..
