    The model was built by Jim Allen. He also took the photos.

    Close up: This is a GCLaser wood kit, in Z scale! When I saw the prints, I was ammazed at how good this looked...Kudos to the kit manufacturer, the builder, and photographer. The car is a Microtrains, the power pole is scratchbuilt from brass, and NBW castings for the insulators, and the wheatfield is "grass mat" from Busch.

    Wow!!!!! Great detail at any scale, but "Z"? Hard to believe the structure, but the photos show the detail exquisitely, a testimony to both modelmaking and photography.:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:
