Hey Tom,
Maybe you should put some dead fish down there.  I don't think anything could survive from what those folks at Hollis are flushing down the drain!

BTW, your house and train room look beautiful.

I just got caught up on your thread.  You have a beautiful home and the modeling work is first class, too.  I really enjoy keeping up with your layout build - thank you for sharing it with us.

Ah the good old days, the smell of dying fish, runaway algae blooms, the smell of kerosene. Then the EPA comes along and says to clean the place up. But that is in the future. Love the detailing.

Jim,

Thank you and thanks for stopping by. Not sure the EPA helped or hurt our environment.

Bruce,

Thanks, much appreciated. I thought about something dead, maybe a body for the local PO PO. I don't think we can see HO scale fish, unless of course it 's a mass killing.

John,

Thank you for both very kind and generous compliments. The house and modeling are a labor of love. I also appreciate you following the build thread.

Jerry,

The spillage will also make for a nice little scene on it's own. We do have termites here but ones that big. LOL!

Dave,

Dang, that is a lot of some kind of slimy fish. If my fish ingest the waste, I may have a river full of mutant fishies (sic).

I posted this information on the chapel build thread but thought I'd mention it here as well.

I want a small southern church in this area so I decided to go with just the main building and not the addition on the right.

This will also give me a larger area for the cemetery.
