Ah, Marshall Fields & Frango mints.....NICE! But, for that intersection, there should be at least one vehicle in sight for every pedestrian!  :?

Roger great memories of Marshal Fields in Chicago. The Walnut room was a must every Christmas with my grandmother and the trains on a different floor, all Lionel of course. Thank you.

DKS, I'll freely confess to imitation being the sincerest form of flattery here.    When I did the shop project, I remembered that one of yours, positioned my shop worker taking a break by the door, on the graveyard shift in Winslow.   But I never got a decent shot of it until tonight...still learning.

Actually I moved them for the photo--lots of cabs and  CTA busses.  Happy that several of you have the same memories as me.  I used to take my sons to eat under the tree in the Walnut Room and the last few years we have taken our granddaughter.
Best regards,

Roger

Time to invent the centerbeam lumber car and fork lift.

Friday evening commute home.  Time to "highball" to the bar car.

My mom used to take me downtown Chi in the '50s to shop, and I remember that clock. One minor quibble -- the folks look a little underdressed for a Windy City December.

I seem to recall a story in MR about someone who was building layout scenes based on a few of O. Winston Link's amazing photographs.  Knowing Kalmbach, it's a good bet it that the layout was in (H)orribly (O)versized scale.  Impressive nonetheless, primarily due to the talents of the photographer. 

According to the MR archives, it was in the 2015 Model Railroad Planning issue.

Simple, he pulled thru from the back and already knocked them off :D

That's a great idea, but there's more to add.   

I've seen that happen.  And the truck driver either pulling out or backing in will have traffic backed up in both directions as he tries to extricate himself, sometimes with citizens helping to block traffic to get him out....

I see a lot more of that stuff happen with 'navigation aids' that aren't truck route sensitive, a 53-footer got stuck on an intersection in my historic neighborhood and it took all the neighbors to stop traffic, back everybody up, and help him get out of there.

Be interesting to see what happens when OTR rigs are driverless, and no doubt relying on Google to plot their routes. Try helping a robot truck get out of a jammed-up situation!!!

This White Tower night shot is one of my favorite ESM Facebook cover photos that @wm3798 took on his original Laurel Valley and is a good "storytelling" photo.
