Very nicely Michael. The store looks railroady in that setting.

Great work on the store, Mike. I really like it when modelers go the extra mile and add the interiors to their structures.

Bernd, I can't think of a higher compliment. Thank you.

Glen, thank you. Maybe I'd better nudge the interior higher on the to do list.

Mike, A typical looking general store, that will fit just right anywhere. Sometime the upstairs might be a storeroom, but also could be where the owner and family lives and they might have their own entry, so you could just put curtains in the windows there. And no problem with the first floor door that you moved over, that happens on the prototypes too when the interior gets reworked.

Very nice Mike! A interior would be the icing on the cake but must be judged against how close the building is to the edge of the layout and how easy it is to see.

Håkan,

I have started working again on my machine shop, meanwhile collecting Ideas and images for an interior to the general store. Shelves and counters are not a problem, nor is the chimney and stove. I bought a couple of stove castings many years ago. The main problem will be merchandise on the shelves. Many historic photos show stacks of tin cans, which I will need to scratchbuild in quantity.

I have no specific spot on my layout for the store, but one I have in mind is several feet from the aisle. I definitely would need lighting

Mike

Michael, I just discovered your thread here, and had a look at the work that you have been doing in it.
Everything from rolling stock to structures and even layout construction, it's all very impressive looking!
Please keep up the great work you are doing on all aspects of your layout's construction.
Now that I found your thread here, I will definitely be following along!

Greg,

That's high praise from an accomplished modeler like yourself. I can tell you that hanging out with craftsman such as you and watching detailed models come together has me trying a little harder. Thank you for the kind words.

Mike

Mike:
For tinned goods simply use the appropriate diameter plastic rod and have at it. Scoring at intervals works fine and you can paint, or print-up micro labels if you have the patience.

I saw a dvd with the late Paul Scoles. He simply took electrical wire on which he pulled out the conductive wire. He then cut tins out of the insulation. Simple and looked great after some painting.

I'll probably give this a try. I've been looking on the Internet for ideas and labels.

Håkan,

I'll give your idea a try also. I would never have thought of it.
