Thank you Bernd, Pete, Bill, George and Louis. I appreciate your comments.

Carl, you’re welcome. More specifically, it’s a DecoArt Americana paint.

Thank you Jim, David and Chuck.

Regarding the color, I try to use colors appropriate to my period. I often consult a book I picked up years ago: “Victorian Exterior Decoration: How to Paint Your Nineteenth-Century American House Historically” by Moss and Winkler. I believe there’s a new edition.

Mike besides the building being nice I like the name of your RR better too. It has a better ring to it. The bi-directional name wasn't as good as Penn & NY RR.

I tend to agree, Frank, although they are both prototype names. The New York State part of the layout still has the bidirectional name. It changed to Penn & NY at the state line. Maybe a little pedantic, but reflecting reality in the 1880’s.

I’ll have to get a track plan drawn up some day.

The reason for the name change is that one railroad was chartered in New York state by an act of the NY legislature, and the other in Pennsylvania state by the PA legislature. This was a common mechanism when the planned railroad crossed state lines. Usually the same people were officers and principal shareholders for both legal entities. After the railroad was built, one legal entity would buy, or more commonly lease, the other legal entity and operate the two corporations as a single railroad.
