    TY Dan, I had a few wet spots yet when i took these pictures......nothing like the glare of white glue at the base of some weeds LOL
    This is built with some Hydrocal castings taken from molds i made with FSM masters sent to me by Mike Lynch The Basswood is Kappler the window and door castings are grandt line. Corrugated roofing is from Milepost and is treated with a mild acid followed by floquil paints Rust and Grimy black blended to tone down the rust a touch.
    Detail parts are evergreen for the most part although the firebarrel and grate are home made and the bench/ loveseat and tires are salvaged from a 1911 Benz by matchbox (nothin but the finest for our Railroad folk :D.
    Track is temporary only since this piece was made for market.
    It can be used in O On3 On30 and On2.
    If I handlaid On30 track i would limit the folks who could potentially use it. :)
    For more and larger pictures of this piece, go here but dial up folk be warned it take a min or 2 to download these as ther ar much larger.
