Great pics to model, keep them coming.:thumb:
This one is from our friend, Locobreath -
Another Interesting Photo from LB
Here is another shot I think the members would enjoy. It was taken on the west side of Chicago right on a right of way freight embankment. I call it "Plain Vanilla Building with Bagpipes. (only kidding).
Haven't posted much as I have been trying to decide what I wanted to model. Made the decision that I would do the old Southern Rwy route between Alexandria VA through Orange VA and Charlottesville.
Found a great cluster of building on VA Rte 20 between Orange and C'ville at Montpelier Station. Montpelier was originally a plantation owned by Pre James Madison and in 1904 was bout by Wm. DuPont who built the station and siding for him and his guests to use. A siding was built to accomodate their Pullman cars. Across the street was a General Store and two homes w/attached structures. A short distance down the road is a freedman's (former slave) cabin that is being restored. The depot and residences a separeted by the road and a bridge crosses the now NS line to enter the estate itself.
I will reduce the shots of this group and post them later today.
Will try the depot shot:
Another group of a very few of the buildings I'll be doing. Took more than 130 shoots and have each building from multiple angles so I should be able to scale them pretty well. One reason I am keen on this "clustered" location is I am working w/a 30' x 33" layout and it will all fit!.
Wish me luck!
The baggage shed and spur for the Dupont estate.
More of Montpelier Station
The current visitor center which until recently was a general store with gas pumps.
