Good Morning Everyone ,

I will start off with the stone bridge I just completed. Let's see what you have been working on.20200524_06380620200524_06381620200524_06384420200524_06391920200524_063903

I built this model of the Ophir (Colorado) Depot from a kit by Banta Modelworks in 2015. The model sits atop a tunnel and hill at the rear corner of my 10’-by-5’ O gauge layout. I added the cupola, which was not on the actual depot, above the freight section of the building. Ophir was an outpost on the Rio Grande Southern 3-foot narrow-gauge railroad, so the scene includes an On30 locomotive on a non-operative section of narrow-gauge track.

Is the title a typographical error, a misspelling or a suggestion?  John

I am pretty sure it is a typo.  The "U" and "I" are adjacent on the keyboard.  It would make an interesting new topic.  NH Joe

I took it as a suggestion!  So I grabbed the missus and did something biblical!

Melgar,

Beautiful model!

I visited Ophir about 10 years ago. Ophir is one of the towns that is way, way, back in the Colorado mountains.  It is surprising that a railroad could be built to it.  

As I recall, the road between Ophir and Silverton is one of the worst that I have ever driven.  There is a sheer cliff going straight up on one side and a sheer drop off on the other with no guard rails, very winding, and with almost no room for opposing traffic to pass each other.  Your model captures the look of the sheer cliffs extremely well.  

 It is amazing that that people could settle in such places.  Of course, it was all about mining and getting to the mineral wealth.  Ophir is an interesting place to visit if you want to see an authentic Colorado mining town.  The town has a very nice museum depicting its history.   NH Joe

I see the OGR software issue still isn't fixed on photos?

The gate was made from a bunch of old Rusty Stumps factory windows and painted silver. I spent over $100.00 on them back in the day to do my last and final building as shown below. What ever is left, I will sell on ebay. This bldg. will be on the other end of the new layout oval and connect with American Dock as shown above.
