Hi everyone,for those of you that have been following my last couple of builds,know that I've been paying tribute to certain members here at RRline forums,that help make this place great!
And I thought it would be kinda cool,if I could put all of those tribute builds into one place.
And what I've come up with is a place called "Magoun Pier" Named after our friend from Michigan, Pete Magoun(Orionvp17)
Pete has always been a great help & very encouraging to me,especially when it comes to building my ship models.
So I thought I would name this pier after Pete,to thank him for that support given.
This also happens to be the place where my layout dreams will finally start to come true.
I can think of no better place to start,then where rails meet the water.
This first section of my layout will also be made portable.Infact if I wasn't naming this pier after Pete,I think Port Able would have made a fun name.
This portable section of my layout beginings will roughly measure 3'feet by 6'feet.
But enough of that stuff,I want to show you the Magoun Pier terminal building now.
It's basically made up from 3 Walthers Municipal pier warehouse kits combined together.
I wanted something to compete in size with the R.A.SANTOS which will be tied up too Magoun Pier.
This terminal building measures 12"inches wide by 43" long so it does the job.
posting this now to allow for editing.

Very well done, Greg. Looks like the old saying applies to dioramas as well as layouts: they are never finished.

Darn good time Greg. Well that puts it in another light.

You captured the feel of a very dark night broken by the wonderful lighting. Well Done!

YES, I think about him very often, he simply faded away. I tried to contact him several times to no avail.

Great looking night scene, Greg.

Bill, Jerry & Pete, thank for your post and nice comments!
Bill, Mistress Zelda sees more work ahead for me still to do.
Jerry & Bill, I'm glad you guys enjoyed the photos!

Good stuff, Greg! Bravo!

Great night scene for sure!!

Greg, Great stuff!
In the first shot it's "Eenie meenie, chili beanie, the spirits are about to speak".
In the second shot they've either spoken or Mistress Zelda went home for the night
not wanting to compete with the work at Nlisson Sailmakers.

Thanks! Bob & Mark.
Bob, I miss our old friend Dallas being on the forums, I hope all is well with him.
Mark, that's the vanishing tiger!

Looks wonderful, Greg!
Love the way there is a head in the first shot and a tail in the second. The sign looks great lit from the bottom.

Hi everyone, well I have finally gotten around to hooking up the lights to Mallerich's Magic Shop.
One of the problems I experienced when moving Magoun pier outdoor to photograph was the structure is so close to the edge of this layout that I was always afraid of breaking off the billboard on it's roof.
So I made the billboard removable, and as a result of that I had to remove the lighting from the top of the billboard to instead being now located on the roof shining up at it.
This is how it now looks at night, also notice Mistress Zelda's glowing crystal ball through the upper window.
The next and last building I still have to light on Magoun pier, is the Nilsson Sailmakers factory, so I'm working on that one next.

Jerrman, thank you for your very very kind words!
I recognize your name from another model railroad forum that you have also posted on there.
I'm glad that you enjoyed going through this entire Magoun pier thread, and I hope it inspires you or anyone else that enjoys waterfront scenes to try and incorporate one, big or small into your layouts.
