Thanks for the compliments Bob, Tom and George.

It's been a productive week. I built the 5 gates and completed the fencing and gate posts. I built a styrene fixture to hold the parts for the gate posts during assembly. However I just assembled the gates over the drawing. The area under the ramp would be difficult to dirt-in after I added the fencing, so I took care of that.

Next up is to complete the dirt on the base and then install the gates and the gate post stiffiners. I've ordered the cattle for the pen and have horses and cowboys already.

As the end comes in sight, the excitement and fun builds.

Thanks to all for the kind words.
Janbouli - A scratch built stock pen in N-scale will be quite the adventure. I'd love to see it.
Thanks, Jim. It's all done with art markers. That's why it looks like art.
George, I appreciate your compliment.
Tom, gates and doors are great fun to make. Especially when they come out as intended.
GPdemayo, Thanks,
Mark, Thank you.

The stock pen has been a labor of love, and except for a few details is finished.
The last photo is on my Cimarron module. We just did the land forms behind it today using Bragdon materials.
