Re: Locomotive Sand KUID

I should probably switch the sand houses to use something on the DLS for ease of use; any preferences?

Re: Promontory Stuff

Looks good, Norm :)
At some point in time, I'll replace those cars also, but I've kinda run out of time. I'm going to need to start in on the next project soon ('The Building of the V&T') ......
