BobbyD, thanks so much for the information.  Although was hoping it might be a 40-footer.  Have to see if I can find one, maybe.

Ron, I don't recall a scale 40' plastic model with end doors. Good luck with your search!

Here are a few close ups from my layout.IMG_5491IMG_5454IMG_5459IMG_5870

I love your scenes! So few layouts give you the feel of a real place populated by people doing things. All your photos speak of a place where we'd all like to live!

They are fantastic. Fit right in to your era. Your layout is amazing Lee as are  your modeling skills.

 Thanks very much! I'd taken that for another forum where people were asking to see power/phone/telegraph poles on layouts. It also partially shows the 'new and improved' Stoney Creek Road to the right...

FYI, those are HO scale track spikes as lineman steps on the nearest pole. The transformer was scratch built with styrene, as I'd yet to find a good pre-war-era pole transformer kit/casting in O scale.

Oops!  I didn't know there was a limit.  Thanks for letting me know TedW.  Well, that's all the closeups I have of this layout, which was in OGR #220.  It has moved on to another home who I hope is getting as much pleasure running it as I did building it.  Thanks so much for all the "likes".  My  current layout is still a work in progress, so it will be at least 3 months (maybe 3 years) until  I will have some new photos to post.  Trumptrain, the poles look great!  Are you planning on adding wires to them?  When I painted my poles, I put a subtle dab of black every here and there to represent the creosote still left after the poles have aged.  You can see one in my last photo.  So many great pictures on here.  Good job, everyone!

Finally ... retired ... time to play with trains.

MdMikey - thanks for the compliment about my poles.  Thanks too for the tip about painting a dash of black here and there on the poles.... great idea!  Eventually I will attach wire to the poles, however, not any time too soon. 

I really enjoy your photos!!

Cheers and Happy Railroading,

Here are some pics I took last night of the Red Lion Train Station Model Railroaders' layout.  If you are at York you should go see them tonight from 6 - 9 pm. Nice layout.
