Hi Miles
Welcome to Railroad-Line Forum.
I am sure you have read the thread in the Craftsman Corner about our group project on building Foss' Landing.
It was a lot of fun and it is a great kit.
Please feel free to add your comments and pictures if possible as you complete the construction.
As many of us have already finished the kit please ask any questions you may have regarding its construction.
Look forward to your input on this forum.

Hi, Miles, and welcome to RR-L.

As John mentioned, we had a great time building Foss' Landing together and adding our own touches to the model along the way. It builds up into a great looking model. You won't regret your purchase.

Here's a link to the Foss' construction thread John mentioned:

Since I'm the "boot" of this group (Joined today 01-25-04) I'll introduce myself. I live in Charlotte, NC. I've been modeling for about 15 years and interested in railroads for about 65. Yes, I'm that old. My interest in railroading was started when I was a young 'un. Lived with relatives about a block and a half from the 4-track mainline NYC in Rochester, NY and we went at least twice a week to see the Empire State Express streak by. At 12, I got a Lionel 027 set for Christmas. I am constructing a small little-known mining & logging outfit that existed in Northern Va 1880-1920. Layout will be 3 10' sections in a U-shape. Research time 25+ years.
Very little paper work and conflicting histories. Most information came from Nat'l Park Svc. (Sorry, no picture).
