    Hello everyone,

    This model is a scratch built version of the Campbell Brett's Brewery kit.

    I used Northeastern clapboard, Grandt Line windows and cast the walls for the boiler house from glued together Chooch walls (to get the height needed). I made a latex mold of the Chooch walls and then cast the walls in hydrocal.

    Also, I'm not a big fan of false-front buildings so I sketched out a small 2-story addition and built it for the right side of the building.

    Hi Chris,

    Well, unfortunately, I have to build them all from Jordan kits. I have built over 150 of them to put on my dioramas.

    Karl, I look at all your threads and find I have no words. I am absolutely speechless. (Mighty strange for me) I have only one question: is there ANYTHING you can't do?

    Hi Chris,

    My fictional railroad was named Eagle Canyon. I had custom decals made and I made my own dry transfers to letter locomotives and rolling stock.

    You're right on the time frame......1930's, all steam and mostly wooden freight cars. I built several swayback cars and wooden cabooses but ended up using them mostly for props in my photos since the layout plans gave way to dozens of structures. Here's a shot of an ex D&SL 2-6-6-0 deadheading past Buffalo Creek station and tower.

    Cheers,

    Karl Osolinski

    Hi Lynn,

    Thanks, glad you are enjoying the photos.

    Boy, I could fill volumes with the stuff I can't do. I remember when I got my first job in photography about 1961. My boss told me the secret to being a successful photographer was "only show your good stuff and throw out the rest".....

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks to all you fellas, I'm glad you're enjoying the photos.

    I'm not sure what I like better....building the models or photographing them. I just flat love camera equipment. I still have the Argus C3 that my Pop gave me in 1955 and it still works fine.

    At the moment, I'm scratch-building a model of the McClosky's Market from the F&SM.

    Here's a shot of a diminutive 10-wheeler passing by the DiGeorgio Furniture Co., with an old sway-back box car and tiny wooden caboose in tow.

    The other shot is an old sepia toned photo that the ECRR used for a promo shot......it needed new business!!

    Please tell me your building a layout for all this. If I didnt know any better i'd think i was looking at pictures of the Gorre or the Franklin and South Manchester.
