    Vital stats are 160' long,45' tall,and 32' deep.

    Everything but the windows on the upper floor is scratchbuilt.

    There will be a lift truck and loading crew in the open doorway to the right.

    Hey PussyCatt,
    That looks quite nice, also once you get a backscene behind it, it will look fantastic. Great bit of building my friend.

    That looks great Catt!
    Looks like a place that could really generate some rail traffic.
    Another idea I had from looking at it, was to make that door on the end of the structure, a covered loading dock for trucks. You couild park a truck or two there, & have figures busily loading, & unloading, & have lots of boxes, drums, pallets, etc., piled all around.
    Keep up the good work, & thanks for sharing those pics!
    Looks like a really super layout!:cool:

    Still not finished ,needs windows/doors, rooftop details,and signage yet.At least it's big enough to warrant that rail siding.She's a whopping N scale 354.5' long( just shy of 24" )

    Matthyro Will always be re-membered

    Its all coming together nicely Catt. It does take time though so keep at it even though having to work gets in the way at times. The GVR has a very promising future. In the not too distant future you will be picking up and delivering the "just in time" methods to the MAT trucking factory. You may notice a cut in the original name because to make a MAT truck sounds like the old MACK trucks.

    Hey Catt!
    Lookin' better all the time!
    Isn't N scale great for depicting "big time" railroading?
    Can't wait to see what she looks like with all the details!
