Great pictures, everyone. Here's a couple of rural pics that's I've posted here before, but thought new folks might like to see them.

Nice barn Eddie. I like the off angle look of the tractor shed vs the main barn. Maybe they are square and the center opening makes it look that way. Not matter what the cause, it works!

This is a disused viaduct in Monsal Dale in Derbyshire, England we say today.

The nice thing about "rural" is you get to model run down establishments with character like this.

The quiet of a fall morning is broken as a coal train rumbles into a sleepy mountain junction...

Yesterday, while on a country road between Winlock & Adna, Washington, my asked me, 'Why are we stopping in the middle of no-where?' I said to her, 'We just passed a very unusual sighting and I need to return to get a picture of it!' Upon return, my suspicions were confirmed! And here she thought I was talkin' 'bout some bovines standin' out in the middle of their pasture!

As George Peppard used to say, 'I love it when a good plan comes together!' . .and I couldn't pass this one up.

Our van parked by the pasture gate with 'You know Who' inside:

The bovines on their turf:

And the priceless experience:

Gerry & Drew, those are great pictures, but any picture with cowz in it has to be really rural. Allen, did you get the urge for a "Yee Haw"?

Here is a side view of Cartwright's Machine Shop on the F&SM from deep inside the layout. Old #2 is drifting out of the hillside tunnel and startind the decline into Beaver Meadows behind the shop.

While not as dramatic as the cityscapes, George's rural scenes are just as well modeled, and I think his scenery is as well done as his structures.

Rich J.,

No Rich, I didn't! But I did get an N&W AAAAAAAAAH-HAW! I wonder if the gent who owns the trailer really knows what he has there? That would make a dandy home for a layout, Terry! . .Terry? . .Teejay!

Rich, I couldn't agree more!

Here is a shot from the Puget Sound Club layout in Tacoma, WA.

Hi Crew,

Here are a couple of "rural" shots on the class 1 Georgia Railroad.


This is a GaRR passenger train heading west toward Atlanta from Augusta in 1940. The rear car is a Pullman.


A one car "mixed" train heads north toward Washington, Ga. on the Washington branch in 1951. This would make a great "pike-sized" passenger train on a Deep South layout.

Hope you enjoy.

Steve, you KNOW I've got a soft spot for how you utilize space. That Stuckey's scene is a great shot.

Bob: That low-angle feed mill shot is just wonderful.

Actually, everything posted so far is terrific. This should be a good month!

This is the only "rural" picture I could lay my hands on:



....maybe I should try a little harder.
(However, this WOULD make a unique trackside "sign")

Ken,

I snapped that car up on the poles on a rural road in North Carolina, just below the VA border.
