Karl,
Nice job, as usual. Is the concrete loading dock a casting? Do you remember who made that industrial chimney?

Bruce,

I think I have the same chimney. Mine is a resin chimney. It didn't have a tag on it when I bought it at a local train show.

Since we are talking about them, have you seen the Victorian Smokestack by Sylvan? I forgot all about them. And, they come to the Springfield show:

Chuck,
I have built one of their small structure kits (two car handcar shed), and I love their 55 gal drum castings, etc. But, I did not know that they had the Victorian Chimney casting. I will have to get me one. (I did manage to get the same "look" with the Crow River chimney & my base casting.)

Hi All:

Thnaks for the compliments. Bruce, the loading dock is balsa covered with durhams water putty and painted. The stack is resin but I forgot who the Mfg. is. It's not the same one Chuck pictured. Mine doesn't have the concrete base.

Karl,

Sorry, I didn't mean to mislead. I do have the same one you have from your pictures, though. I just offered an alternative to Bruce, just in case the one you pictured could not be identified. Great model, by the way!

Bruce I have one of the sylvan chimneys and a word of caution when I bought mine the store had 4 or five in the bin and the one I got was the only one which was reasonably straight the others were curved and bend probably stored or shipped somewhere hot. Pat

Hi Chuck.

I have long been a fan of yours. Glad to see you using these forums.

The tank car is heart-stopping (don't know if that is such a good expression). Absolutely beautiful work.

Thanks all. Mic, you have been a mentor to me for many years through your articles. I eagerly scan the Forum for any post of yours!

If you ever get the time to post photos of your Stambaugh Garage, there is a topic called “Fill er up” over in the Model railroad construction forum that would be a perfect place to put them! That building and your Pillar Point diorama really shook up the hobby!

I am finding these Forums to be super inspirational! So much great work to see, so little time to look!

Thanks again,
Chuck D

Hi Chuck.

Good to hear your 'voice.' Stambaugh is still around safe and secure in a plastic case. I am very excited about this particular forum – Scratching. I finally mastered posting photos only to have sub-freezing weather thwart my photographic goals. Spring has almost sprung so it won't be long before I can get some real sun to light the subjects. I shall be watching closely for your stuff as well.

Mic

Here are a couple of buildings that are located on our club layout that I scratch built.

The Riverview Motel is all styrene with Grandt Line windows and doors.




The Brindza Mine tipple is styrene on wood pilings.

Mic, Chuck,

I am looking forward to seeing more of your great models here in the forum. I sure am happy that many excellent modelers are now here. Joe Crea recently joined the Yorke_Kits Yahoo group. I would love to see some new pics of the Stambaugh garage, Pillar Point and Chuck's machine shop and other terrific models. Isn't this hobby just great!!!!!

Frank Bernard

PS - Mic, have you been working with Roger M. on his version of the Stambaugh garage that he is bringing out as a kit?
