    Portuguese Structures!

    Changing the pace little I bring you three typical structures that can be found in Portuguese railways. The first one it's a small structure in wich railway personnel control the passing of the trains (to check if the road passing is closing correctly)

    This second one is used house where the person that controls this road passing lives, unfortunately, as far as I know it's going to be demolished very soon to make way for two other lines, one of them to be used by the new Ultra-Fast (r) trains. I'm studying the possibility of using this road passing as inspiration of a little diorama for the contest (See thread What do you all think by Shamus)

    Folowing the trak to the south in the next road passing we have a similar structure but this one is abandoned since the road passing was closed. Modernisation has closed a lot of this road passings in the behalf of safety, other's were subtituted by bridges.

    This building in Pensacola, Florida would make an interesting model. I like the signals and the way it curves around the tracks.

    How about....

    .... "The Big Shop" in Stratford Ontario. Long before the famous Stratford Festival, the town was a CNR division point and motive power shop.

    Here's a shot of the interior.

    That`s a great shot Val a scene we will not see again!!

    I was at the McCowan Yards,, again, this time I paid John a visit and took some shots.
    This is one that should be of intrest , a freight van on blocks being used for storage.;) :p
    If you enlarge it you will see there is all sorts of "stuff" around the van!!

    I pass this building every time I drive to the LHS. Finally brought my camera along so I could share it with everyone.

    This shot is an overview.

    And here's a close-up showing the beautifully rusted corrugated panels that caught my eye in the first place.

    There's a lot more detail in the original shot, but I had to downsize it to post. Sooo.... here's a tighter crop on the roof panels for all you rustaholics! :D :D

    Not that I could see. I'm guessing some sort of warehouse, but I don't really know.
