    Hi all, as some of you know I've been building a train room for the past month so I have'nt done a lick of modeling or photo's. Now that the room is done I'm back at it!
    This is a scratched frieght house I've salvaged from my switching layout. I am going to add a gantry crane at the rear. It's good to have a bottle of CA glue in my hand again. ;) :D

    Fantastic model, t! (that pun was not intentional! :D )
    The open dock, open doors, & views of the interior are a super-detailers dream!
    Lots of freight, lots of people, lots of activity...it would look great right across the tracks from a depot witrh an open passenger platform!
    And btw...the pun I made at the top reminds me...ut would look great with some model T's & A's (my goodness, I'm just full of them today! :D ) parked outside...

    t - that looks just great! Scratchbuilt you say? That's a real fine piece of work. I've been looking balefully at my future train room today. Full of boxes, trunks, busted furniture and such. Sure wish I was at the point you're at! Congratulations friend!

    cheers
    :D Val

    t,
    That's a great building! The picture looks like you clipped it out of a real trackside photo. Very realistic! Welcome back to the fun part! :D

    Hi Ima, just not much to see in there. Picture an empty room 9'x17' with a concrete floor and a door and there you have it :D. But it's mine!...it's all mine!
