Chain link fences are a fixture of the American landscape. It seems to be the standard for providing business and industrial security. From a modelers perspective, a few commercial have been offered over the years. I have seen fences built from vale material for women’s attire. They are a bit fragile which might not be an issue on certain locations on your layout.
Bill Yancey decided to develop his own approach using brass etched fence material and cast brass posts. He contracted with Plano and Valley Brass and Bronze to make the parts.
Here is the fence the Bill developed and installed at an industrial site on his layout.
A closer look shows the simplicity of fence. The posts include an extension for anchoring barbed wire.
The signs are eyecatching drawing your attention to the fence.
Scott Spears built this fence in his freight yard. Bill’s fence could be used to create a version of what we see above.
Here is a question for you to consider:
Would you like to purchase this product if it comes to the market? A company is currently considering the production of kits for the fence. Don’t contact Bill. He isn’t offering this. Voice you interest please.
If the fence kit is that good then absolutely I would.

Beautiful fence work! I model the 1950’s and do not believe chainlink fences were common then. Am I wrong? Otherwise I would buy and build these beautiful fences. Thanks, Owen
Anchor Fence Post Company developed chain link fence in 1891. This fencing has been in use for over 100 years.
Thanks, Gene. I knew they were around just not widespread. I plan to adjust my picture-viewing eye to look for examples in 50’s rail scenes. We are used to seeing shiny silver fencing today but I wonder if they more often used wire and posts that rusted back in the fifties? In the meantime, put me down as interested in purchasing this product if he develops it. Owen
I would be interested in getting some. It looks really nice. Put me down as a yes.
One small caveat… I model in HO scale so some adjustment in the size of the fencing material will be needed. Owen
I suspect that is a non starter for the manufacturer.
It looks great. I’d be interested.
That fence looks very realistic. I would definitely be interested in buying some (some being about 10 feet).
Very, very interested! Hopefully different heights would be offered.
Hi! I would be interested in purchasing. Thanks Harold Storm firstname.lastname@example.org

Yes, I’d be interested in buying the fencing for some projects.
Looks really nice. I need to check my prototype for fences, I don’t recall any but sure think one would look great. In a couple places.
Yes, I would also be interested in the fencing!
I would be interested in 1:48 scale fencing wwith or without barbed wire, including standard gates.
I would purchase a couple of feet.
Great article. A detail often overlooked by the builder but impressive to the modler as an observer
Thanks for sharing

Quarter scale fencing looks really goo,—I’m interested! Please notify
