Gooduns Val! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Super stuff Val and Paper bear and others..
This is one busy thread. Great. :thumb:
Lots and lots of STUFF
Changing the pace little I bring you three typical structures that can be found in Portuguese railways. The first one it's a small structure in wich railway personnel control the passing of the trains (to check if the road passing is closing correctly)
The pic !
This second one is used house where the person that controls this road passing lives, unfortunately, as far as I know it's going to be demolished very soon to make way for two other lines, one of them to be used by the new Ultra-Fast (r) trains. I'm studying the possibility of using this road passing as inspiration of a little diorama for the contest (See thread What do you all think by Shamus)
Folowing the trak to the south in the next road passing we have a similar structure but this one is abandoned since the road passing was closed. Modernisation has closed a lot of this road passings in the behalf of safety, other's were subtituted by bridges.
Nice photos, also a great one to model.
nelmeida, thanks for the pics,, with the curtains up you would think it was a home from home, pity it`s gone.
Love the different ground levels
This building in Pensacola, Florida would make an interesting model. I like the signals and the way it curves around the tracks.
.... "The Big Shop" in Stratford Ontario. Long before the famous Stratford Festival, the town was a CNR division point and motive power shop.
Here's a shot of the interior.
Val, thats one hell of a nice photo, anybody want to model it?
That`s a great shot Val a scene we will not see again!!
I was at the McCowan Yards,, again, this time I paid John a visit and took some shots.
This is one that should be of intrest , a freight van on blocks being used for storage.
If you enlarge it you will see there is all sorts of "stuff" around the van!!
Wow Chris - now that's very model worthy! Think I might just do that one.
I pass this building every time I drive to the LHS. Finally brought my camera along so I could share it with everyone.
This shot is an overview.
And here's a close-up showing the beautifully rusted corrugated panels that caught my eye in the first place.
There's a lot more detail in the original shot, but I had to downsize it to post. Sooo.... here's a tighter crop on the roof panels for all you rustaholics!
Riding around this morning and I caught this one.
Here's the rest of it.
Now thats what I call Character!!!! Was there any sign telling what this structure used to be? Pat
Not that I could see. I'm guessing some sort of warehouse, but I don't really know.
