The Tractor Challenge!

In this thread in the official forums, SimGuruCopeland issued a challenge!   I’d love to see an example of someone doing a bridge with it.  I would think that the entire track would need to be on a foundation to make it work.   Well, it wasn’t exactly a challenge but I took it as one!

Mother Russia Review

When I saw this set I was so excited!  I even more excited when asked to review the set for Platinum Simmers!  (Be warned… there may be an excessive use of exclamation marks in this review!!!)
