    Here's Joe on his break outside the Laschinger Brewery. I originally had this structure (not quite finished painting yet) in a very different place on the layout. Trouble is, it looks good wherever I put it, but I think this may well be its final resting place.
    Ever since I started my layout I have given up the typical woman's pastime of re-arranging furniture, in favour of re-arranging whole buildings!!!!

    Nice Val. That LPB looks more like stone cold steve austin to me with that bald head and vest. FRED

    I hear that guys who are losing their hair favour hats... ;) :D

    I am sure this will happen to me soon... My wife has been making comments to that effect :cry: :(

    Nice work on the building, scenery etc. Val! I like the red end on that switcher :thumb:

    He's a lonely looking sod. Is there no one to take a smoke brake with? Even his dog has abbandoned him. Poor Joe! Is he the sole employee?

    That is a nice building though. You sure like those big structures Val, and you do such a good job of them too.

    Nice LPB, you paint 'im?

    Banished to smake alone as an outcast, does that mean you've decided to mdel modern times, or does he just want some fresh air with his smoke? :D :D :D

    I'll bet he's bald under the hat too :)

    Thanks folks! Yes, I painted him myself - it's a lot cheaper that way. Chris is right, he needs a buddy to have a smoke with, which, since this is a Toronto scene, would have to be an Export A.
    It's not modern times Jon, but there's no smoking in the brewery - too much risk of fire. There's a break/lunch room where smoking is allowed, but Joe likes to stand outside and watch the trains.
