It looks excellent, Bob!

Nope, I didn't know what it was from the rear either!!  I may have not recognized it from the front.    Of course, I have only see one actual Menards store in my life.  The one in Warren, Ohio when I was with #1 Son Paul!!  I'm a online Menards patron.  Lowes and Home Depot have the market cornered here in Western Pennsylvania.

Mike, cracks me up everytime I see Menards addiction meetings member! As far as Menards here in the East and West coast, we are in Freebie land as opposed to 11% land in the Midwest! LOL

Bro, it works this way. When your on a small budget and you can get rolling stock for $20.00 or less its easy to become addicted! Then you see how they can become a layout like Dad's it sucks you in even more! So don't worry just because I am way over here on the left I am just like you! Addicted! LOL

Mike, you are so right.  It was just over an hour's drive to Warren, O!  That is a fairly new store and the one nearest Paul is even newer.  

Play Trains, I have never been able to figure out how to get the 11% via online ordering.  They say it can be done, but I'm too backward to figure it out!    My only issue is I am only interested in items that look plausible for a 1950s era layout.  That rules out a lot of their items.  Of course the same can be said for any manufacturer's product line.

Mark : if you need help with the 11% rebate, let me know.  It's a little confusing  if you've  never done it.

Thank you Bob!  Yes, I was confused a while back and gave up.  I'll look at it again and let you know if I have trouble.  

Mark, the last time I went to Menards it was a 16 hour drive. The wife and I were going to see her parents and the Menards just happen to be 40 minutes past there house. Of course I had to make that drive to get me some Menards products! LOL

Mike, That was a great diversion from visiting Mrs G's parents!!  I agree, you had to make that trip!  I'll see whether my knee recovery is up to an hour trip to the Warren MEnard's in December!!  

BTW, what are the requirements to become a Menards addiction Meeting member!

Nope, I'm looking at the building to the left of the water tower at the TOP of the page. (There are 2 water towers in this photo). Not the engine house in the back ground, but the building just to the left of the TOP water tower. Must be setting about 6" to the left of the TOP water tower on the layout.

Can you post picture ?

Not seeing the building they are talking about.  I do see what appears to be a tan MTH switchtower to the left of the watertower.  Had me excited, still hoping for a large, weathered, coal loading facility building......

Here they are guys, all but the Valvoline tankcar. Great colors for the Christmas  season I would say. Also the new Menards 2019-2020 catalog  is out ,20191023_112306

At least in my area- the M&M's hoppers are FLYING off the shelves.

I imagine we will see them on many Christmas layouts!?!

I'd encourage the Menards design team to consider more "candy" themes for future products!
