This explains why some really stupid university students think the Underground Railroad really was under ground.

The main structure of the Missoula Coal and Transfer Company is mostly done.  I need to build the bucket hoist structure yet.

It's ( too tall | too short | just right ).

Goldilocks thinks it looks terrific - well done!

Finished a couple of buildings then spent 16 days passing a kidney stone.  Kidney stone was easier than posting right-side up photos--and, yes I'm over the pain-killer fog before posting photos.

Here's the World Wide Wickets Building.









And one up-side down.



Last Fall I was at the Decatur, IL train show and a dealer had a box of odds and ends in which I found a Bergen National Laser Sugar Beet Warehouse new, factory sealed for $19.99!!  It's a $100+ kit.

Amazing laser engraved bricks and 3-part lacy windows.  instructions said the clerestory would be very difficult and it was.  My only mod was to add a lot of bracing under the very thin roofing which would have had wavy sags if not braced. Definitely not shake the box but it provided many enjoyable evenings.





Finally at the same show a fellow had an HO Walthers White Towers in his junk box.  I am always looking at HO structures to see how it might be converted to N scale.  This one had a lot of glue stains and looks like it was painted with a broom.  I will post its N scale rebirth soon.

Best regards,

Roger

Interesting to note that 'Class of 77' had no clue how under ground railroads worked..

Hey, Roger! It was nice to see you at the show, tho' you certainly weren't feeling the best (understatement of the year). Great to hear that you're OK now.

The factory and sugar beet building are outstanding. Structures are now on the short-range radar for the layout down here and I'm starting to accumulate, but there's bunch of scenery to tackle first.

Otto,  The siding is Evergreen V-groove.  I painted it light tan and then drew on individual boards with a black Sharpie. This was followed by airbrushing a very dilute mixture of grimy black and roof brown.  Finally I used Pan Pastels for a little more depth.

SIXTEEN days????!!!!  Holy suffering Batman!  I'm glad (and probably you too!) it's over.  Great building there!
