That's always a problem for us early rails as what was ordinary often was not photographed. The memories we all have as children and so often tell us what fits and doesn't are just too new so naturally we're not sure. I've seen a couple of photographs of resale and distribution yards and several Sanborn maps showing "stacks of Lumber" so on this I can be reasonably sure.

Your's look fabulous to me.

The uncertainty is a challenge to the early rail modeler, but it makes the discovery of some obscure photograph showing the thing you're looking for that much sweeter when it happens.

Great thrown-together display, Mike. Has the right feel to it.

Thanks, guys!

Bob, youíre right. Itís also easy to project back in time and assume what we see in old photos is true for old old times. Meanwhile, I have found pre-1900 Sanborn maps for the area Iím modeling and they show lumber sheds, so I know they existed but I donít know what they looked like. Piles of lumber show up in lots of photos.

Galen, Iíve actually been very fortunate in locating (stumbling across) photos, but I could always use more.

Frank, thank you. I didnít do any bragging but I did bring home first place in the monthly popular vote.

Mike, I bet the observers checking out your "quick" diorama were drooling over the modeling. Looks great and can't wait to see it with the additional details included down the road! Great job!

Mike,

Thank you. Any drooling that occurred fortunately didnít fall on the model. It would be hard on wood and yellow glue.

Full installation on my layout will probably wait for a couple of wood sheds to be built. Iím working on ideas.

Meanwhile Iím back working on my pair of cabooses. Gonna finish them this time around.

Mike

Mike, you work on your cabooses. Once I finish dropping feeders and 'trimming' benchwork, I too have some crummy work ahead.

Bob, Don't worry. I'm developing my lumberyard slowly as I get ideas. I've known all along one little building was not enough.

Galen, I'll just keep bobber-ing along on my crummy car construction.

Kevin,Thank you for the kind words.

Here's where they stand at present:



I'm currently covering the roof to represent canvas and will move on to lettering and the rest of the details.

Mike
