Håkan, as with all Mike's threads, that one was filled with great modeling tips. Unfortunately, Mike passed away before he could complete the build. However, there is much to be learned by looking at the steps that he had completed. Here is a link to that thread: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=17259&whichpage=1

Back in January 1976, George made 2000 issues of his Timber Coal Tower No. 145 at just $36.95. What a deal that was. Hard to believe I built this little beauty 37 years ago.

Here is another coal company- George did several- this one is Bartholow Coal from 2006, JS-9. I think I did a build thread on this.

Hello Karl A. - those are absolutely great shots from Kevin's work of Duffy's coal yard. After getting my hands on one of those kits back in August, I am currently building Duffy's myself. Again, great, great shots.

Thanks to sharing all these great builds to all of you. This thread deserves a sticky note.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for starting a thread like this. It sure whet my appetite as a late comer to this hobby and as a FSM fan. I really have to stop drooling now. So anyone has a FSM kit they would like to depart? Just kidding.

Excellent workmanship everyone.

Elliott, I'm very sorry to hear that. I'm glad that it hasn't stopped you from continuing your modeling. Next time we are on the west coast, I'll take you up on the offer for coffee and donuts.

Amazing pictures of amazing talent! I love Fox Run, and hope to see Swackhammers and Chippy Hollow soon. My personal favorite is Elijah Roth. I have it, but am still practicing on Campbells kits. Maybe we'll see some FSM builds at the Expo next week.

Maybe we can cover them all. It's like collecting baseball cards but a lot more fun. I have a lot of the older ones, but some are gone or I have bad pics. Here is Butcher's Way that I named after my friend Gerry Leone.

WOW! What an awesome thread. My favourite part of model railroading is building craftsman structures. They don't get much better than FSM kits. I have built a few. And fortunately I have a closet full of more yellow boxes to get done. My two favourite kits are Pile Driver and Elijah Roths. Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure. This thread is very inspirational.

Well O.K. A few more views of Elijah's....







I don't have a layout yet. These are packed away in boxes. It was great to dig them out and take a look at them again. Brings back some great modelling memories......
