    Old Family Home

    My wife and I were in Yorkton, Saskatchewan last month doing a clown job. While there, my wife took me around to see the house her grandparents (on her mom's side) lived in after they moved off the farm. She says it hasn't changed much from the time since the days her grandparents lived there. I plan to model this house in honor of them.

    This is the front.

    Here's a picture of a feed company that I took a year ago. It's located in Harmony PA. It looked like an interesting structure to model - some day.....

    Thanks, Chris. I have no idea how long it's been there. Here's the back of the building. That red building in the back is connected to the main structure by a covered walkway.

    By the way Chris. Harmony was a major junction on the Pittsburgh, Harmony, Butler & New Castle Railway, which was an interurban line that ran in the early part of the 20th century.

    Thanks, Chris. I already picked that picture off the internet. I think I've found all I can about the PHB & N.C.on the internet, but I'm always looking for more.
