    I built an Ash Creek Lumber Co. MoW / RIP shack with plans from T. F.

    I plan on giving it to a friend to put on his layout. Now I'll have a reason to bring my 'modern' McCloud boxcars out of storage. He is modelling a free lanced modern theme. (he buys what ever is new!!!)

    Besides, I don't think that those big sixty foot McCloud cars would even be able to negotiate the right of way of the Ash Creek.

    :eek: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :cool:

    That's a great looking shack. I really like that siding and roofing.

    Looking good Drew, could use one of those on my little eNpire:thumb: :thumb: :thumb: Is the corrugated sides scratch our commercial?

    I've been shack attacked!!

    thanks every one:) :) :)

    I guess a flag pole would work as a lightening attracter, but this pole ain't grounded:( :( , so I could be in trouble.

    The siding is comercial Campbells #804, HO scale. Not sure if is available in N scale.

    (wait 'till you see the next one!:cool: :cool: :cool: ;) ;) ;)

    Since the roof and the walls are made from metal, the current of a lightning would probably flow that way - sort of a Faraday cage. But oh Boy - what a noise that would make when you were in that hut! :D :D :D

    Drew, this is really a very neat model. Great weathering, too! :cool:

    Great looking shack Drew. Love that chimney and the rust weathering it caused to the roof.
