    My latest creation is the Burchell Industries factory located on my MATrr.
    Previously this old building was the George Bailey's Produce Company but closed years ago when Mr. Bailey passed on.
    As part of the interchange agreement between Ed Burchell's Iron Ridge Railroad and my MATrr, Ed came to Maberly for an informal meeting. At that time, he saw this old vacant building and finding it at a bargain price, he purchased it and renamed it Burchell Industries.
    So far there have been a nunber of deliveries to and shipments from the factory but nobody seems to know what is being produced here. Time will tell
    The immediate neighbour is the Edwards Machine shop and across the tracks to the front are Templars Tombstones and Catt's Cannery. Across the tracks behind is the Anderson Coke Plant.

    This model is based on a picture of a Fine Scale Miniatures kit produced by George Sellios
    Ed Burchell is NARA member #25

    I have a suggestion Robin, I seem to remember a negotiation between the Iron Ridge and the MAT when it comes to Travis Recreational & Construction Vehicles. I think this building would make an awesome expansion of the cabinet company that brings in woods, glass, accessories, stains, and varnishes and supplies Travis with their custom cabinetry. In fact with an expansion like this, and an interchange already in place between our two railroads Burchell Industries could double it's product output, shipping out custom cabinets via Hamilton Port to other parts of the US and Canada.

    Sounds good to me Ed. I remember something along those lines.
    So now the mystery is solved and we know the ins and outs of the Burchell Industries plant.
    Thanks to everyone else for your support. This whole scratchbuilding process is giving me a great deal of enjoyment.
    Couldn't do without it now.
  17. That's a good looking model, Robin.

    A couple of years ago I scratchbuilt a structure based on a photo of a Campbell kit. I know the challenges presented when trying to work like that. You did an excellent job with an even more complex structure than the one I did. :) :cool:
