    Here's two more structures. They are part of the Anderson's Peanuts elevator/storage facility in Troy, AL. Sorry for the pole being in the way. Note the high fill for the track.

    This dam would look good on a layout. The waterfall would be the tricky part. The railroad runs along the edge of this lake (not in the picture, but it would be on the right side).

    Big Four Depot Lafayette, Ind.

    Built in 1902 (Lake Erie and Western Railroad), moved during Railroad Relocation in 1994. It now houses AMTRAK, and the local bus company. It was not being used for passenger services before it was relocated, as the only AMTRAK ran down the middle of 5th St., and it was on 2nd St., by the river. So it was a good move for the old gal.

    This shot has a bankectomy, to rid the photo of a less than historic building that just didn't seem to fit in.

    trackside building

    Who doesn't have space for this small concrete block trackside building? Not sure what it's used for - possibly a defect detector as it's out in the middle of nowhere. A more modern steel box has been added behind the original structure.

    I like to drive down the back alleys in the industrial parts of town getting reference shots like this one.

    More back alley details. This is the kind of add-on structure that is easy to make and customizes any kit.

    What would an alley be without an overflowing dumpster?

    Finally, a corner fruit store. What I love about this is the fact that the brick has been painted over, and the corny home-made looking sign.

    Ok, one more. Couldn't resist a close-up view of the sign. I've got to make one of these!
