That is mighty fine looking work Mike'.. All three projects look excellent'.. Also nice to see structures in a good state of police instead of over weathered and dilapidated conditions...

[i]You are already bringing back fond memories of my lumber yard build for me



Mike,

I looked at the calendar and the date when you started your lumberyard thread (July 24th). I was at a blues guitar workshop that week but one evening that week I drew up plans for my lumberyard building. So we started our models almost simultaneously. Funny coincidence but I have enjoyed the company.

Thank you for the kind words.

Mike

Mike, I stumbled on your thread after you started your caboose project. So, I had to go back in time. Those are really nice cars. Just like all of your work. Thanks for posting the updates.

Yesterday was a meeting of the NMRA division in our area. Wanting to take my lumber yard building to the meeting for the "Bring'n'Brag" I constructed a temporary display with walls, gate, track, piles of lumber, and a scratchbuilt flat car:








It looks a little stark in the photos, but once planted on my layout I will add details such as weeds, more lumber piles, details on the structure including door handles, a wagon in the yard area, and perhaps one or more additional buildings.

Mike

I like your lumber yard Mike. I especially like how you have the lumber stored appropriate for the era you model.

Good job, I look forward to the final version.

I've been thinking about a combo coal and lumber yard. Did they have lumber racks in the 1890s?

I apologize if me responding here is inappropriate but I Did make the comment provoking Dave's question so; I have not seen lumber racks (like Atlas' lumber yard) in use before the 1940's. Maybe a little earlier, buy not much and certainly not before the turn.

Thank you, everybody!

Bob, I'm not sure what is appropriate for my era other than photos I've seen showing tall stacks of lumber in the open air.

Dave, I agree with Bob that the Atlas lumber rack is representative of post 1900. The February 2010 RMC has postcard photos of lumber yards in the Midwest around 1908-12. They show some two-story lumber sheds; too late for me however. Sanborn maps from the 1890's of the Auburn NY area I am modeling shows rows of "lumber sheds" which I suspect were humble single story affairs.

Andre, I suspect it will be a little while before it's all planted on my layout. We'll see.

Carl, I appreciate your looking in.

Dave, I have a lot of models to emulate here on the Forums. Also, I've learned that the camera is merciless in picking up the imprecise and the poorly-constructed.

Bill and Ted, I confess some elements already existed before this past weekend, such as the flat car, a couple of lumber piles and the base with track, although I did rework some of the scenery.

Mike
