It's very good! I was going to say that maybe there was too much gravel at the shoreline, as a natural lake that size doesn't really have a beach like that with rocks and pebbles.

If you imagine it as an artificial lake, former 'gravel pit' maybe turned into nature reserve? It actually looks quite real. Certainly better than any of my first attempts!

@Simmer2 This is very impressive. Is there any chance of a 'minimal' version with the edge of the lot being closer to the edge of the roundhouse? I do love your lots, but purely for reasons of flexibility; combining this with other rail lots  and networks (which are by nature rather on the large side for obvious reasons, realistic turns etc.) The smallest lot makes for the greater flexibility.

Please do not see this as a complaint in any way. I enjoy all your work and will download immediately (and probably without reading the description)

@MissVanleider When you see the total picture you will understand the reason behind the size of the lot once completed.

Shaving a couple of tiles will not really make a difference anyways, the roundhouse building is massive, for a reason *;)

@Simmer2Question,  What kind of hoppers are those? They don't look like any American Prototype I've seen?

Also now that Vester released his GEVO engines as props, why not have 2 or more locomotives on a train? :P

@DavidDHetzel The upper ones are quad tanks closed hoppers. They carry caustic powder chemicals. Quite common.:yes:

The lower section is a small parking yard, used to place wagons while the locomotives are being repaired.

@Simmer2 ah, must be a european thing. Most i've seen either have ribbed or curved sides like these two.

@Tyberius06 Thanks for the shout and that is some great work on your part as well. And not just the interchange either, that's quite the massive complex of rail lines and yards back there! It would be really cool to see a mosaic shot of it all once your finished.

Here's another Costco with a makeshift tire center.

A distribution center re-lot and a new SUPER distribution center.

Maaan, where were you when I started the IRM? *cries othogonally to the grid*

But seriously, not only are these great lots as usual, but I also like how you used ancient techniques - such as shoving two buildings together or adding Maxis storefront props - to great effect.

They also go to show how much the lot can contribute to the overall appearance because if we're frank, both Costco BATs do show their age. I even have the Costco distribution one on my IRM candidate list but have to admit that I pushed it further down because I thought the quality isn't quite up to the same standard as the other BATs I've been using. Now that I see it on your lot, I find myself thinking "Hey, it looks fine", and wondering if I even looked at the same BAT. o.O
