Here's one for your collection deemery it's late 1800's early 1900's.
I live 3 miles away from it so naturally when I saw the kit I got it and am going to start it this winter.

I have the kit and I plan to build it as a part of the first scenery/diorama on my layout.

Onewolf here is a picture from 1964. I know the local railroad historian and he is going to dig up some more pics for me (he has over half a million just from the Sayer area).

Doug,

You mean you haven't started the kit yet? Better yet, you haven't finished it? ;D ;D

Well here we go! I have never done anything like this on a forum.


Here is John H Murray's coal tipple, LHS (Sayre Hobby is taking pictures as I build it) Murray's is a local landmark in the valley.

This is coming along nicely.  I have seen the Laser3 display model, (as well as the prototype), and it is certainly an impressive structure.

And a few more. Waiting for barn red wash now! Instruction book has shoots, pulleys, chains and doors all 28 of them next in line. I don't know about you guys but I figure some of them would get wiped out in the fitting process of a 22" x 2 1/2" building deck and tracks on top of the bins. (Bull China-shop thing)
