Your work as always is great to look at. Professor Einstein on the steps is a neat little touch.

Thanks for your interest & posts, James & Tom.

Here are a few of the photos that I took on tour day, between visitors of the new things around the pier.
The R.A.SANTOS was being loaded with some new heavy diesel generators, for shipment across the lakes.
The crane operator "Dutchman" had to be real gentle on his controls, while maneuvering these heavy large generators into the ship's holds.












I even convinced Cpt. Bill, to unmoor the "BILL GILL & Son" barge to swing it around, to get some photographs of their port side.







Thanks again to my modelling buddies, Rob & Lance for helping me get through the 12 hour tour day.

Greg

Greg,

You taking photos of your fantastic layout diorama has two sides, a PRO and a CONN.

The PRO is that we can see what a wonderful modeler you are in addition to a very good
photographer. We all really enjoy those photos.

But there is also a very big CONN, at least for me. When I see those photos and hear about your
layout show it makes me feel real bad that I cannot travel there to see it "in person".

Bob

PS: Forget my CONN, keep the photos coming!!

Thanks! Rich, Bob & Bill, it's always nice to read your comments.

Bob, it would be wonderful to have you visit the pier in person one day!
Even though you probably don't visit Canada much anymore, you would be most welcome at anytime.

Here's another view of the R.A.SANTOS at the pier on tour day.

Found this photo while "surfing"
Can't say I looked through all 73 prior pages to see if it was already posted up. It reminded me strongly of a few of the B&W pics you've posted. With no disrespect to the fabulous work your done thus far. Thought it might have some handy ideas for the dry end of the pier. Does does art imitate life, or life imitate art?

David, that is a really cool photo!
Thanks for posting it!
I never get tired of looking at old photos like that one.
Love that long wooden pier in the background.
That boiler house with the large smoke stack, in front of the C & O Pier 4 building, looks like one that South River Model works offered with their Blackstone Paper mill kit.

Hi everyone, I was looking at some of the photos that I took outdoors of my Magoun pier, and discovered a few more that I had not used before for different reasons.
However by cropping them I was able to get the good parts of the photos away from the not so good parts.
So here are a few never before seen reworked photos of Magoun pier.
