    I modeled these grain elevators from photos of the real thing which I took on our last trip out west. N scale and made out of my favourite material. They will be located at the prairie town of Harris on my layout. Harris is a real town in Saskatchewan.

    Very impressive structures along your RR line, Robin! Now these are REAL cereal boxes, aren't they?

    As in others of your pictures - the superb background adds immensely to the reality of your model scenes.

    I bought the Walthers Sunrise Coop a year ago to put on my layout. Seeing what you have done I just may forgo the plastic and stay with the cardboard based structures. Very nice work Robin.:) :) :)

    Ralph's for fun!

    I've seen prototypic pics of elevators like this from the Candian prairie both in railroad mags and artists mags. You've really captured the look! Very nicely done! Love the vents and the rusty loading chutes!

    Many thanks for all the support and kind words you all give me.
    I enjoy building stuff as you know but never expected what you all say about them. It is my pleasure to share them with you.
