I am absolutely enthralled with this. First thread I go to to see progress. "Stunning" does not due it justice.
I note a Kelly Miller window card. Perhaps your a closet CMBer and we will see a parade winding by the terminal in the future??

Frank, thanks very much! It's a great joy for me, reading that you like checking out my Magoun pier thread!

Those Kelly Miller Bros. posters that you noticed, are a memento from the 1990's.
When I booked them to come and visit our little town, more than a year in advance of the actual show date.
It turned out to be a wonderful experience for me, residents came out to watch the elephants help in raising the tents!
And the show was spectacular, I loved seeing the smiles on everybody's faces.
And... I sold enough tickets to fill the tent twice, for 2 separate shows. Raising a bunch of needed money for our local park board in the process.
They stopped coming to Canada soon after that. I was told it became to difficult to get the animals across the boarder.
With all of the proper papers & vaccinations that were needed to cross.
I'm glad I got them here to our little town at least once though.
My only regret was my daughters were away at summer camp when the circus came to town.
So they missed all of that fun. :(

I think a circus coming too Magoun pier by rail, and then being loaded on the SANTOS ( or the other way around) would be a wonderful scene to model someday in the future indeed!
Keep a look out, for the coming soon posters.

Many shows used to go to Cuba by ship before Castro. I understand Ringling would book a winter show (not the complete 100 car show) and travel by ship. Don't know if it was an arena show or under canvas. having cages and equipment being loaded would be interesting.

All the best to all employees at the terminal

Frank, I have the book "The Circus moves by rail" and in it are some photo's showing a circus using a rail ferry to get over too P.E.I.
Prince Edward island.

Thanks Mark!

Hi everyone, I thought I'd take a few more photo's before I return Magoun pier back to my crowded workshop.
Just to show you some of the things I finished before the tour.
First up the ivy that I continued on the sidewall of Testard Mathematical Instruments.





And also the ditch between the tracks and the stone retaining walls, that I filled up with bulrushes.




I will pour a little Magic Water into this ditch, when I eventually get to the lake water all around the pier.
Here is a view of this same section looking the opposite way.





I was able to light up most of the structures, except for Mallerich's Magic Shop & Nilsson Sailmakers.
I still need to do some work on those structures.
Here are a couple of night photo's showing how the lights that I have working look.












Thanks for looking!

Greg

Greg, great scenes, great photos. I particularly like the way the track runs through the scene between the buildings. Captures the look of urban rail lines. Overgrown along the margins of the right of way. I'm taking notes.
