I think I bought this for 'stock', just because it seemed like a good item to have to hide background items. Anyway.... one sprue less the gate, painted and with three planks removed, which is easy if you say it quickly, but there is a fair amount of thinning to do. Dropped on with a bit of UHU and done. I like trains behind fences; I don't do it enough. The problem is they become less photographable.
