    Fan's of "A Prairie Home Companion" will recognise the name. My friend Walt has always wanted to build something for my layout. He surprised me with this grocery store based on a real store located in scenic Marine-on-Croix, MN. Here's the model he built.

    Walt secretly enlisted my wife's help. She drove out to Marine and photographed the real store as a reference

    Great looking structures, Ralph!:cool:
    It's kinda funny, because I'm sitting here listening to PHC as I type this...(they re-broadcast the Sat night show here on Sun afternoon)
    Got any plans for a "Side Track Tap"?:D ;) :cool:
