    We started a "cool links" thread over in the Real Thing Canada, but that's kind of specific. So, here's a new thread for all railroads, prototype and model. C'mon everyone - time to dust off those bookmarks and put them up here for all to enjoy! :) :)

    Some guidelines for posting.
    1) Links should relate to model or prototype railroad.
    2) No links to products, ebay items, etc.
    3) Please give a brief description of the link you're posting. (That way when we get 100's of them - people will be able to pick and choose.)

    Have fun!

    I have a few as well:

    Library of Congress Historical American Building Survey. Lots of photo's searchable by keyword or location. Some even have plans and elevations. A scratchbuilder's reference paradise!!!

    Roadside Art. Some very cool retro signs.

    Toronto Ghost Signs Keeping with the sign motif - these are fading signs painted on the walls around Toronto. Also kind of useful for building reference.

    10 Commandments of Yard Design Self explanatory!

    Hank's Truck Pictures. Did you know there are "fallen flags" in the trucking biz as well? This site has lots of pix from all over North America.

    D&RG Bridges. More fun for scratchbuilders. Lots of photos and diagrams here.

    Cinema Treasures. Amazing collection of movie theatre photo's categorized by style. Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Beaux Arts, Classical, etc etc.

    And, how about some cool models?

    Avtex Rayon Plant. Amazing scratchbuilt complex, with over 400 lights!!!

    Free Heavan Harbor Terminal. A gorgeous N-scale harbour layout that has to be seen to be believed!
