    The design is based on Nu-Line Structures tip-up warehouse but at a slightly lower price of (so far) $1.00.

    Will post more pics as progress progresses.:D

    Coooooooool.

    One thing that is just so great about N scale...look at all that spare real estate. That is going to be a superb scene, Catt. Can't wait for updates.:)

    Very neat! Its a huge building, just like such warehoues are, but it doesn't overwhelm the scene! Hmmmmm, this N scale of which you speak is verrrry interesting. :)

    Nuther pic,showing some progress.The base you see is the same plastic the building is made from.When done the base will measure 40" long by about 12" deep (at least that is the plan. :D By the way I now have $2.00 invested in this project.

    You have been busy Catt. Looks great. Lots of room for those rigs to turn around and back to the doors. Tell us more about the tractor trailer and the other trailer please.

    No rail connection as you say Catt but how many of those trailers end up being moved across the country by trains. There also could be a cross docking facility nearby to load goods onto a train.
    The setting looks good and gives the GVR a BUSY appearance.

    Robin,I think that the trailers will be the chalenge in this project.They are going to be made from 3/4" square pine cut to the appropiate lengths (28',40' &48') the wheelsets will be small diameter dowling(unprocessed cardboard :D )

    Excellent job on the warehouse! What kind of plastic did you use for it? It must be cheep, if it has only cost $2.00 so far! I need a few warehouses like that on my layout.

    Hi Catt!
    Well, you just keep churnin' 'em out! :D :eek: :D
    You capture the look of the modern industry so well...particularly in the scale-size mass of these structures.
    I live just a couple of miles from a modern industrial area known as the Bluegrass Industrial Park, (served by the NS) & any of the structures you've built for the GVR would fit right in with all those massive plants & wharehouses!
    You've done an excellent job there!
    :cool: :cool: :cool:

    most of us n scaler would like to know what kind of plastic you use we all who model in n scale knows how hard it is to find what we want and when we do find it is is to high in price so we spend the money on that pice of rollong stock thats been calling our name for months "not picking on other scales but i worked in hoalso and things are more to come bye in bigger scales at a lower cost"

    Scooby,I'm a member of the Riverbend Model Railroad club in Hudsonville.I've been getting the plastic from one of the guys there who reportedly bought a skid full of the stuff.It is aproximately 15" wide x 40" long and is about .060" thick. Biggest drawback is that it is black.

    Charlie,any chance you could get me some pics of some of the buildings in the Bluegrass Industrial park?

    By the way folks thanks for all the nice words.
