    Philney Coal & Coke is a scratchbuilt structure modeling a typical coal distributorship in the 1930 - 40s on the east coast.

    Thanks for the kind words fellas.

    Matthyro: It's HO.

    Spitfire: The silos (two frozen orange juice containers) are laminated with basswood scale lumber. The silo bands are made from thin fishing line painted black.

    The trucks are both Jordan Products models.

    Very Impressive Loco. :thumb:

    I have to agree with Andrew, that is NOT a typical building.
    Awesome is more the word I would use.

    Here's to a job well done.

    Nice job on a very unique , interesting structure . It looks like you've given a lot of time and effort to the details . I also like the way you varied the weathering on the board fence .

    Great Work !
