Oh yes, the seedy side of the tracks - the industrial side, the side with the less reputable establishments, the side with the clutter and run down buildings. For all those reasons, it is an area that draws a lot of modeling attention. One of our Canadian members (Karl) even uses the term as his on-line user name.

Hopefully we have members who can contribute photos to illustrate what 'the other side of the tracks' looks like.

Thanks to member John Berryhill (jaynjay) for suggesting this months Gallery theme!

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

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

Here, the wrong side of the tracks appears on the Tall Pine RR. Wicked Wanda's, where the little people are always showing up on time.

These two girls are on the wrong side of town.
And the drunk named Larry stumbling down the alley is about to be on the wrong side of a skunk.

Well, I thought I had posted enough pics in the past of my "Bleeker Street" Diorama and that everyone must be tired of it, but someone asked, so...here goes - a few new ones and a few oldies:

Is that the Batmobile in the last shot? Your scenes remind me of my drive to work.

And that's NOT make believe.


It's only make-believe

A lot of those late fifties cars did look rather "batmobilish", didn't they? It's actually an abandoned Mopar product of some kind...a Plymouth, perhaps? It's what Chrysler Corporation called "forward look" styling, introduced around '57.(Too lazy to Google all this, so all facts are subject to revision!)

And Bob, I hope that's not you driving to work in the purple car! *G*
