    • I have been looking at Colorado Model Structures, they seem to be fairly inexpensive compared to Pola and Piko , I am ordering some soon to see haw they are, but from the videos on their website the are pretty good

      Dennis, Did you build that structure or is it a kit? nice looking building. My RR needs to get on the ball and get some customers so that more rolling stock and locomotives can be acquired. The CFO/CEO/the Checkbook holder has said no more cars until there are buildings and scenery. how did you bribe Marconi and The Chicken man to pony up for the building?or are they just renting the space?

      The building is bashed from 2-3 Pola engine shed kits. It makes a nice but somewhat expensive building as the kits are still a bit $$$. I couldn't bring myself to scribe all those bricks in foam board. Marconi and Rooster are shrewd businessmen. I had to give them the first 6 months of rail service free.

      Looking good Dennis.  Are those pet chickens out front, escapees or statues to be used to clean ones boots before entering the emporium?

      They are making a run for it.

      That brick and stone with green trim has to be a classic industrial look of the 19th and 20th centuries.

      Ah, I like the roof lights; if I can ever have a garden railway that is a thing to keep in mind.

    • With a name like Marconi, I'd a'thot it would've been an Italian place, like Marconi's Macaroni.

    • Tell Marconi to keep his goat cars away from my Emporium as it's ruining business

    • The NK&F is proud to announce two new customers. Track still needs upgrading before trains can roll. Something tells me there will be some strange loads from this building.  Hopefully this will add much needed revenue for the RR.

    • great job Boomer, I think Bens beard is really close, Devon's may be a little full, but I doubt anyone will notice.

    • As promised: the Rotary CY Crew.

      LSC members Ben Hancock, Dave Taylor, John Caughey and Devon Sinsley.

       

      Ben's beard is too long, Devon's is too full but otherwise they are both okay. I think Dave turned out great and John is bang on. If he was not three and a half inches tall you would mistake him for the real person.
