About four years ago, we devoted a Photo Gallery Theme to "Brick, Block, Stucco & Stone".

http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=28896&whichpage=1

In it we saw some great modeling of foundations, chimneys, masonry walls, etc., and were also treated to a great collection of prototype pictures illustrating the art of the mason.

Well, let's see what the four intervening years have brought our way. So post your pictures (model or prototype) that feature the use of any masonry product.

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.

Tunnel portal, retaining wall, cut stone building, brick buildings - there is plenty of masonry showing in this photo from Tom Oxnard's B&M (HO) layout.

This station is based on the prototype in Kent, Ohio. It's all styrene and I only built the front half so it would fit between the track and the backdrop on the club layout.

I guess I'll submit this block wall that the prisoner's had to fix due to a washout on the L&R.

That is a great mini-scene, Louis.

Hi All,

Here are three examples of HO scale masonry. The first is from my old layout.

I also found this old photo of a tank diorama I made last year. 1/35. Not railroad, but definitely masonry, made out of stucco chunks and Elmer's; painted, black-washed and hi-lighted with chalk.

My first attempt at carving a masonry wall. The wall was poured with a powdered drywall compound called Durabond. Wish I had paid more attention to the bond.

A lovely station with great curves on a curve on my friend, Ron Newby's (Elwoodblues) layout.



Our train has pulled in for a stop. The location is known as Mosquito Flats. Yes, the sign is awaiting placement!

Here's a drugstore made of real stone on my In-ko-pah Railroad:




And here are a stone building, and a brick building, both made from "Sintra" brand PVC foam board. The brick building is not quite finished yet, and both structures still lack interior detailing:

Here's a recently constructed stone wall, in front of a historic brick church in Austin, NV. The stone wall is "dry stacked", meaning there is no mortar:




This view of the side of the church shows the original stone and mortar work used on the lower level, as well as the fine brickwork:

One moment, it's a calm quiet scene in front of the old Parrish shoe factory.




The next moment, It's a wild car crushing stampede headed for the brick yards,just down the street!!
