And on goes the roof, weighted with my scuba diving weights.

I'm currently reading David McCullough's "The Johnstown Flood."  While at the Expo I plan on finding the time to check out sites related to the story. Here are a couple of the buildings I want to take a look-see at. The yeller one is the Wagner-Ritter House, typical of steel worker's homes in the late 1880s. The brown one is an "Oklahoma House", pre-fab housing made in Chicago and used to temporarily shelter flood survivors...kinda the early version of a FEMA trailer.

The mill looks sweet Dave. I like the looks of that mill house in Johnstown too.

Dave, That is a very nice job of modeling. Hopefully there will be a full size O scale version down the road.
