As we did last summer, I will once again run a series of 'half-month' themes in July and August. I will also continue with the pattern of last year by having the first half of the month cover something dealing with 'structures' and the second half cover something dealing with 'rolling stock'.

So, the theme for the first half of July 2009 will the "The Urban Jungle". Any photos, either model or prototype, depicting a urban/city scene is welcome. Remember, this theme will only run thru July 15th.

For those who like to plan ahead, and perhaps snap a few new pictures in advance, the theme for "Late July" will be "Gondolas and Flatcars".

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Thanks for starting us out with that great prototype photo, Dave.

Here is the Sunshine Bakery on John Rahenkamp's C,L & W.

Great theme Bruce. I happen to think that urban modelling is the hardest thing to pull off effectively. There are some real masters of it on this forum, so I am really looking forward to seeing some of the work. Perhaps it might inspire me to complete my urban scene?

Simon, I sure hope that this theme catches on.

Lou, thanks for posting that picture of Main Street.

Here is another from John Rahenkamp's layout.

Nice job on "Highlands Station". I have one of those half-built myself, I need to figure out a place to put it on the layout (it really won't fit as a RR Station, I need to figure out another use for the structure.)

Well being a country boy, I think this little back alley mini diorama is the only urban scene I've ever done.

Nice work so far, everyone.

Here's some loaner power cruising down Main Street in Adobe Flat, headed for Puppy's Pet Products.

I took this shot of Bruce Ernatt's BM&E freelanced HO layout.

Bruce, I especially like the last shot you posted. I love these brick industrial canyons carved by rail through town suburbs. Peter, you inspired this archaeological metaphore.

Me too. That being said, this "Louis & Edelstein Corporation" is a behemoth.
