    Links to Illinois History have changed since this was written, here is the new link to their build your own main street models, which BTW are really good!

    as far as the flats from Trainboard... he used Photobucket to host them... and there is no download... if you want them right-click on the picture and select open in new tab... that will take you to Photobucket and there once the thing finally loads after all the adverts and click-bait links... right-click on the picture and select COPY ... then open up Paint or Gimp and paste and crop the pix then save!! ( What a pain!!!) I don't know if having an account will give you a download link or not... not gonna join just to find out!

    I hadn't bothered with going to photobucket as I simply took screen captures as they were good enough in resolution to use in HO scale as flats. Printed the ones I wanted on good paper and glued to foam board, some to cardstock. Wish other states would do what Illinois did. There are some high quality photos of buildings in Dayton that are easily made into flats too; simply google for them.

    Have fun modeling, Swamp Daddy

    Hi everyone, I found some more free paper buildings on this site; click the flag for the English version. Most available in N-scale too.
    Interesting railway station at:
    https://wediul.de/_modellbau/wg-bahnhof.htm

    Links to many other free buildings on that page.

    Have fun modeling, Swamp Daddy :yesyes:
