    Does anyone know of any card models of Milwaukee Road engines or equipment for sale or free? Working on a HO shelf layout of the Milwaukee area and doing most of the buildings models in card. Would like to have some card models of engines, etc. for the layout. THANKS - Rich

    This is a current photo of my MILWAUKEE ROAD Shelf Layout. My goal is to do as much of the layout as possible in card models and paper. The backdrop buildings are prints from photos of the Milwaukee skyline. The wall and shelter are by Scalescenes.com. They have great OO/HO and N size card models. The layout is "U" shaped and is over 13' long and 18" wide. I'm still looking for card models of large Oil Storage Tanks, Milwaukee Road engines, MR rolling stock and a Great Lakes Train Car Ferry.

    THANKS - Rich

    I can think of two things you will really need to have on your layout. Something representing Milwaukee Iron (HD) and some Blatz Brewery buildings :)

    Days of my misspent youth. I like what you are doing and where you are going with this. I haope to have my next one this far along come spring. Working on a new roof first.

    Thanks, I sure like the BLATZ idea! If I can't find any buildings, I'm sure that I can find a few BLATZ train cars and some Milwaukee Iron signs. Rich

    Update of Milwaukee Road layout as I continue work on the paper card retaining walls.
    Paper tracks in place to assist in structure placements.
    Now working on the card model of a viaduct for right side of layout.

    Thanks!

    The model I just completed and posted a picture of is from Scalescenes.

    John makes really nice models and they are downloadable
    so you can print out as many sections as needed for your layout or diorama.

    They also come in different brick colors and textures.

    WELCOME ABOARD JOHN!
