    Took a little trip this weekend up to Kincardine on the shore of Lake Huron. On the way home we passed this wonderful old feed mill in the town of Clifford - and it's still in operation.

    One more detail shot - this time we're back to the left side, which is where I parked.

    Very cool. Reminds me of a place in New York state near Buffalo. The name of the town is South Dayton. It is on the old Erie's Buffalo & South Western branch. If you have ever seen a movie called "Trains, Planes and Automobiles" with Steve Martin and John Candy, there is a scene where they get on a train called ConTrain at a town called Stubville. That is actually the South Dayton station. Across the tracks is a great mill very similar to this one. It is very cool. When should we expect to see one completed in HO? I smell another award Val!!

    Thanks guys. Robin, unfortunately I won't have room for a structure like this on my layout until I do a major expansion. It could be a nice standalone for a contest entry though. Sometimes a gal gets tired of everything always being so urban!

    :D Val
