    Hi Errol,
    I hope you don't mind, but your scratchbuilt workshop reminded me so much of eastern Ky, that I thought I would try & show you what I meant...
    Here's a picture of a freight station in Cornwell, Ky, on a C&O branchline around 1933...

    ...and here's a picture of your wonderful, classy structure...
    For give me but I couldn't resist playing around with the photo, & "weathering" it a little bit...hope you don't mind...
    It just reminded me of a little piece of Appalachia, a place very dear to me...

    Awwwwwww Charlie, Thats just the ticket! thanks for posting it.
    Got any more???????

    The more I handled my N gauge structures the more I felt inclined to make more. (I'm easily sidetracked :) ).
    I feel a lot more comfortable making N structures than HO ones.

    The structures in your photos just has me drooling again. All I have to do is "imagineer" the dimensions and get stuck in (probably using cardstock this time). But don't hold your breath waiting to see my effort on it :) )

    Thanks again Charlie.

    You made a better job of my photo than I did! :) . (I'm gonna tell Shamus on you!). :)

    We may make a hillbilly outa him yet, Tyson!
    (especially if we can get him to try the liquor! :D )
    Ok Errol, how's this?...;) ;) ;)
    I was digging around, & came across this old photo of Callen's Feed...looks like maybe the early 1900's...a bit faded, but just goes to show that a sound structure will out-last the ravages of time...
