Very nice set of structures in your town, Doug.
Are all of them kits or is there a mix of scratch and kit-building?

There is a mix of kits and scratch builts Fred. The buff colored section house on the end closest to the mine is a scratch build. Next to it is a Banta general store, 3 Campbell structures, 2 scratch builds and then another Banta kit. I still have one small house to add and a lot of sign weathering and detail ect. left to do. Many shacks and outhouses to come. It will get busier. (grin)

Doug,

You’ve been working very hard and being so quiet about it. I like the fact you captured the two joined buildings with that very unusual roof connection.

Nice modeling, Doug, and I love the fact that the structures are researched based.

This teaser might send more members to look at your link:

Taking shape very nicely Doug!
I don't think their is any gold in those hills.
They seem to be rich in rigid foam.

The research photos for the two center scratchbuilt structures were taken from Google images. They can be found by researching St. Elmo, Colorado. The section house on the end was scratched and loosely based on one from Ophir, Colorado as are the two kitbashed Banta structure kits.
The 3 Campbell kits are not prototype based (I don't believe) but I did them a few years ago and until now they have been lonely shelf orphans.
I do most of my researching in books or Google images of the Black Hills of South Dakota, also Arizona, Colorado and the Kaslo & Slocan regions of British Columbia.
If I take a structure image into Photo Shop, I can blow it up until the doors and windows size match similar Grandt Line items, then I take my other measurements right off my monitor screen. I don't try to build an exact duplicate as I'm not a prototype modeller. I'm more interested in capturing the right feel. (and having fun)

Doug, I gotta smile a bit......I was just going to ask you if it was St. Elmo! I visted St. Elmo in 86 (convention was that year I think). We drove up to Hancock and on the way we stopped at St. Elmo....the little general store was open and we purchased post cards of St. Elmo from the lady who was running it.
There were two boxcars in the woods along the road up to Hancock....they were narrow gauge C&S cars and the inside was stenciled Union Pacific (and maybe "& Gulf")
Your rendition of St. Elmo looks great to me! Looking forward to seeing progress.....tom
