    Jimmy, I love that scene! You've done a really nice job with it!

    Is the car ferry scratchbuilt or kit-built?

    How about some more photos of your landing? I'd like to see more of it in detail. :) :cool:

    Casey..... every thing in that scene except the rails and caboose are scratch built from things found in my workshop. the Car ferry is a length of plank shaped on my sanding disc as is the push boat. Based on "Eastern Shore RR in Virginia,Vincent Mariner, my good friend down there,works on the Loco that handles the Cars off the ferry. I will post a photo of it later that I took on avisit to him I am reposting th picture of the scene

    Here is the Push boat or Tug The rivets on the ferry hull are made with cereal box strips indented with a little toothed wheel my wife Had in her sewing kit, (She dont have it no more), the portholes on the boat also came from her ,they are the eyelets used on a belt

    The pushboat ready to move that barge across Chesapeake bay.
    Great mini scene Jimmy. Vincent was kind enough to send me a video tape taken from the cab of the Eastern Shore loco and you have captured the scene nicely

    Fantastic modelling Jimmy! I like your resourcefulness in finding materials - especially the eyelets for portholes! The whole scene looks great!

    cheers
