Turned out nice !

I vote for the Jordan but the bar mills cart could be made right by adding the diagonal braces to the axels. Still a bit large in comparison. As Mike/Frank said wood vs molded plastic. Plastic wins!

I like the Jorden's better but if you ain't got them the Wood ones will be OK. You did an excellent job of building both of them.

Thank you Karl, Philip and Bob for your kind words and comments..

I prefer the Jordans, the only problem being their so delicate, you can't even breathe on them!

I do like all the baggage carts. And the different sizes is maybe that just they were made at different times. Although a lot of railroad items are uniform in design, I'm sure over time there would have been variations.

Anyhow, I do like your work Carl. Whoever buys this model will be a very lucky person.

Very true. A couple years ago I managed to put together a Jordan buckboard for a friend without braking anything and gently placed it in his open hand when delivering it, with the warning "They're pretty delicate'. As if on cue one of the shafts broke.

Jordan wins this round. Either one would look good on a layout.

Carl, you've 'inspired me' with these carts....

Thanks Rob. I think the Bar Mills product was designed for "S" scale, but "could" be used as a large HO scale item.

Bill- Sorry to hear about your Jordan buckboard-I guess we should glue them down somewhere and just leave them alone!!

Jim- You're inspired by the carts ? Gee, I feel pretty good right now.

Chesapeake and Ohio Combination Office and Depot circa 1895













Thanks to everyone who watched and/or commented, compliments, suggestions and criticism. I appreciate the encouragement and support of all forum members. Many challenges were here. I hope I explained my procedures plainly, and passed on some usable tips along the way....Hopefully , others will try more scratch building...

I posted 80+ photos, which do a better job of showing the process than words ever can. There were many sessions of head scratching, and trashed "first attempts".

Depicting a place which no longer exists, and with no actual photos or detailed architectural plans, is a huge obstacle, as many know too well. I followed some of the concepts techniques offered by other excellent scratch builders on the forum. And the research, calculations and problem solving may keep the old bean from becoming atrophied.

This model is for sale, please PM me for details.

Till next time...

Carl, it should be on the national historical list to conserve buildings.
