      7/8 building projects

      This year I decided to build some 7/8 structures for my layout.

      All of these on the table are awaiting paint and final detailing.

      Station, freight shed, oil tank, water tower, pump house, covered bridge and some sheds.

      I started a machine shop and engine house recently.

      As you finish these and place in locations, I hope you add to this thread with individual pictures.  Looks like really quality work.  Thanks for sharing.

      I'm sorry, which museum did you say was going to display these?   Beautiful, beautiful work, and I, too, look forward to  seeing them in place!

      Thanks Guys!

      Winter has set in up here, so they will not be out until next May, probably.

      Since I converted my layout over to 7/8 scale, I too can't wait to run some trains.

      6" of snow on the layout last weekend. Mostly melted now.

      Spokane set a record for an October snowfall last week!

      Since none of our trees had shed their leaves, the weight of the snow brought some of the branches down on my house.
