    I can’t shake the feeling that the front of the left one are jaws hanging open 😂

    Algonquin Rd

    Agreed. I’m still figuring out the front end, I think I might make the grille stick out a tad.

    Intersection

    From the album: City of Algonquin

    This is my favorite pic of it. you can see the completed new waterfront area, the main intersection, some townhouses, the 3 story buildings on the corner, and some of the dept shops. Looks nice and busy with the vehicles (even if I forget to take the cop cars off the sidewalks lol), just need to add in some minifigs!

    Overview

    From the album: City of Algonquin

    Overview of the layout. Remember this is supposed to be only a small piece of Algonquin, not the whole shebang.

    Government Rd

    From the album: City of Algonquin

    Inspired by a local town, after the intersection Main St turns to Government Road, and curves to pass behind the dept shops. there's a short rocky cliff, at the top of which there will be an expansion eventually, and there are a bunch of construction workers standing around where I need to fix said cliff... lol. Behind the department shops you can see a 6x6 brush truck and Squad 2, waiting for new lighting after their clear lights were pilfered for other projects.

    Looking down Algonquin road, the department shops are visible along with the WIP 7-wide Truck 1.

    Modular Row

    From the album: City of Algonquin

    This is the downtown part, with some modular style 3-story buildings, including Algonquin Fire Department Station 1, which has all the wrong rigs in it lol

    Main St

    From the album: City of Algonquin

    View from the edge of the layout looking down Main Street, which turns in to Government Rd after the intersection. A chapel and small townhouses are to the left, with a row of modular style buildings to the right. Ideally most of them would get replaced with more detailed buildings, either sets or just better ones I make. We'll see.

    MARS Station

    From the album: City of Algonquin

    This is one of MARS (Medical Assistance and Rescue Service) stations, it houses one BLS and one ALS medic. The supervisor is parked out front here, successfully blocking both bays lol. I'll have to make a MARS album and post more pics of this eventually.
  11. Just a few things to touch up, and then besides the expansion I’ll have the “finished” city I’ve wanted for so long! I’m thinking I’ll turn the red 3 story building into a hospital, instead of filling the space next to it with another building I’ll put an ambulance area or something there. Then I have to finish off the area where I have construction, and it’s pretty much done. I’ll post pics in a new album in the gallery in a few hours.

      Besides the pile in the back. I am a big fan! Nice job! can't wait to see some emergency scenes!

      Haha, that's kind of the junk yard atm. That'll need to get cleaned up, and I might take advantage of that empty space and put a little unrelated scene thing for making incidents.

  12. Shoulda done this months ago, but I just thought of it now 😂

  13. My city has fallen into a state of disrepair over the last couple months... 

    IMG_2480.thumb.JPG.c2d385b415c7990f6c733bc85edf6992.JPG

    Of course as seen in my last status update, the wrecked house and boathouse have been taken out (although now they're just sitting in the road lol), but I have to do some cleanup. the 32 stud wide raised expansion on the end is supposed to be very lush and green private property, I'm thinking with a 2 track and cabin, but first I need to pitch the hunk of a table I have and build one that actually lines up with the top of the short cliff. Before I lost inspiration, I had just almost finished a huge re-landscaping project, I had the whole thing torn up while I added 2 plate tall tiled curbs and sidewalks. As a result I had to put in raised green plates across the whole layout, I've never done that before on a city, but thank goodness I had enough 6x8 green plates. I bought 60 or something years ago for a minifig scaled football field I was building, I got half of it done, never finished it and took it apart. I kick myself for not taking pics, it was pretty cool with all the lines and whatnot. 

    Anyways, I do have plans for it and I'm getting some extra time on my hands so it might start coming together. At least with the water front almost done it's mostly a matter of cleanup and I can start doing stuff in the main part and worry about the expansion later. 

    @Rylie Davis this is mostly to show ya a pic of my half urban half rural layout, lol. Station 1, which is my single bay urban firehouse, is at the bottom of the pic, you can just see the MARS EMS station on the bottom left, and to the middle right is the dept shops. That and the bridge ease the transition over to the rural backroad. I'd like to have a bit more rural to it, but that's why I'm adding the raised expansion.

      Looks like progress is being made! Glad we could help inspire you to work on it 🙂

  14. Nah. If it looks that bad, take the push bumper off them all IMO
  15. The mirrors! And shorten the bumper at least a plate, especially since you don't have any kind of a push bar.
  16. Skip the bumper stickers IMO. Just needs to be updated with the changes the other Josh made!
  17. I'm not sure if they're the same size as the plates with rails you used on the track, but you might be able to use flex tube 🤔

    SBPT Bus Front

    They work great on the monorail, but not here. It's worth giving it another try IMO
  19. Very cool, although curves will be a problem 😂
  20. Awesome work, the colors go well on this one and I really like the yellow platform thingys 👍

    SBPT Bus Front

    Good looking bus, but these colors aren't really doing it for me. It could use something a little more flashy and bus-like IMO.
