    Hi folks,
    With the baby due in 80 days, I need space, and cash. I am putting my scratch built 84 lumber on ebay soon. Thought I'd take a bunch of pics on a beautiful day for my scrap book. Hate to part with it, but I'm modeling a different location now anyway. Here's a few pics...

    Where's your 84 lumber complex modeled after? We have them out here in California, notably Dublin, Ca.

    84 lumber got its name from the town of 84, PA where their first store was located. and the zip code for 84, PA is.................... 15330 . You probably thought it would be XXX84. So if the question ever comes up in a trivia game you'll know the answer. Now as to the question why was the town named 84, PA I haven't the foggiest idea. But it was on the former B&O mainline from Pittsburgh to Washington, PA and to Benwood [Wheeling], WV.

    It's a beautiful piece of work and I hope you get what you're looking for. My own experience selling some of my scratchbuilt work was not very pleasant. I regret not putting a reserve on it at least so that I could've kept it from going for so low.
