Digging through the archives to clear up some hard drive space, and cobbled this together.  Enjoy!

Apparently I need to find a source for public domain music.  The jack booted thugs are going after my dad's scratchy 78s now...

Long time, no see. 
It's nice to see chunks of the old layout surfacing here and there from their new homes.  I wondered if I could impose upon those of you who have obtained structures, scenes, or even engines and rolling stock from me in the past few years to post pictures here of their current locations, and describe any modifications you've made, or how you're now using them.

It might be useful information for others thinking about dismantling things, or otherwise re-purposing all or part of your model railroad.  It will also be a treat for me. :D

Cool idea, Lee!



This picture doesn't do it justice, but I'm not home to take a more current picture.  Anyhow, here is the former WM commissary building repurposed on the Seaboard Central as some sort of railroad office-type structure thingie for the Seaboard System near Aberdeen, North Carolina.

Well, I took a big chunk and built a layout around it...

Here are all the articles on my site of it:

As of two weeks ago, things were running.

The power plant and Westvaco warehouse ended up on the CSX Hanover Sub.  Power plant and coal pit are suited in place where they will stay.  Westvaco warehouse is currently on ex Ma & Pa trackage in Hanover.  Only modifications were to the warehouse, as some of the glue joints did not survive the shipping process.  In real life, there are some metal sided manufacturing buildings here without rail service, so I'm not sure it will stay here.

After a visit to Ed K's layout to retrieve a throttle for an open house, I ended up with this too...

I am not sure what I will do with it.  I used it for a teaching tool during said open house, showing visitors how foam board and plaster can be used for different landscaping techniques.  Eventually I plan on redoing the back side with new landscaping once I figure out what I want to do with it.  If I remember correctly, the area had an elevated rail line.  Was thinking of putting that back in place, or possibly put in a highway with overpass over the road.  And for your pleasure, I'm displaying my Western Maryland equipment in the shots  :D

your building on the CMMMD re-alocated as a furniture factory.
cleaned up the shipping damage and added LED's inside and the entrance little roof to hide the little LED for the front

Glacially.  I've got two old houses I'm trying to finish, an old car that needs more attention than it deserves, and more or less continual urge to eat and pay bills, which requires an enormous amount of time.  I did recently get to visit an old friend, though... and raise a toast...
