They might be located in the yard area of a railroad, sit behind a factory or other commercial establishment, or reside in someone's backyard. While not the largest structures on a layout, they well might be the most numerous. They are the little shacks, sheds and shanties that are the topic of this month's Photo Gallery.

These little structures are fun to make, and are a great subject for your first scratchbuilding venture. Even if most of your structures are well maintained, you can fulfill your 'grungy' urges on these little guys. One thing is for sure. No matter how cramped you are for space, there is always room for a little shed, shack, or shanty.

It has been six years since we have devoted a Gallery Theme to these little structures, so hopefully we have collected many pictures in the interim.

As usual, both model and prototype photos are welcome.

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.

I lead a club shed building project. The sheds were placed on the layout to mark the ends of each block. I built this diorama to show the three designs used. One is made of styrene, one wood and one card stock.

And, that was a great looking diorama George. You'd never know what one was card, styrene or wood unless they followed your build in the "Startin' from Scratch thread".
I still have those patterns you made up, they make great trackside structures throughout the layout.
