It started as this: (PLEASE be patient I have 9 more Pics)
Laschinger Brewery USA.
It all started at the local pubs when Ole Ralph made a trip to Canada and tasted the great Cream Ale offered by the Laschinger Brewery in Toronto. Bringing back a truck load the local LPB's went wild for the taste. They notified the owner, Lady Val, of the company and requested that shipments be made regularly to their establishments. Lady Val, thinking upon this, decided to place a brewery in the USA. She then purchased the Ben Thare & Dunit Co. as it had the perfect location and a spur track to ship by rail and also trucking. But work on the old building was in dire need and Lady Val insisted it be done from the roof down.
The roofers were put to work and before this was completed the sand blasters began work on the building to bring back to a new appearance. As the blasters were hard at it the sign painter moved in to redo signs on the old building. Lady Val plans to have this needed business up and going in just a few weeks and the city of Thurmond should prosper also as it will employ many of the LPB's if they can stay sober long enough.
Below are the progress shots of the all new (almost) Laschinger Brewery USA:
Excellent work and great photography. The left side of the building face, is that a casting or was it part of the kit? Also liked the story line that goes with it.
Bill, the left side is simply the back side of the kit, I used most of the stuff from the kit. The back side is plain styrene as it will not show on the layout.
Very interesting Jim. The roof workers sure look busy. I am sure Lady Val will welcome the finacial gains from this new brewery. Actually the gains will be better than expected because the revenue is in US funds and will be well spent on her railroad.
Anything to keep the LPBs happy EH!
