Hi all,
         I see it's been a while since others have shared their version of "what's in a name" or their chosen avatar.  Thought I'd see what other cool reasons we chose who we are and why.
                                Thanx Thom...

Thank you Dave and Karl for your input, I think that I will paint the rails. I'll let you know how it turns out.    Jeff

B-L-H didn't last very long.  Wal-Mart occupies a portion of the property.  The distinctive shaped office building remains in that function, space leased to tenants.  Decades ago, Boeing built a wind tunnel on a parcel adjoining Industrial Highway (HUEY and V-Stol testing).

Back in the day, Baldwin, General Steel Castings, Belmont Iron, Westinghouse, Sun Ship, and a Phila Electric generating station fronted on aptly named Industrial Highway running from Chester to the Philadelphia airport.  Reading had their Darby Creek facility and roundhouse along with a rolling bridge.  Quite a lot of railfanning was done going back and forth to grandmom's.

I found a package of old Precision Lasercraft self-stick light grey wood shingles.  After a bit of drybrushing, they're good to go. 

Then I constructed the gable ends ('shiplap' for the front and clapboard for the back), including nibbling out the slot for the roof panel's bracing, and glued them into place.

Finally, I glued one of the roof panels.  I'll let that dry thoroughly and then attach the other.

John,


Love that post and beam construction!  (Reminds me of my 1:1 barn.)
