What an eye-catcher Frank's Station is , it looks perfect in that setting.

Robert,
I had the privilege to visit your layout a couple (three?) years ago.  You have accomplished so much since I visited, and this latest expansion is shaping up to be awesome!  I love the "up front" location you have chosen for that beautiful station Frank built.  I am looking forward to more photos of the latest expansion!

Jerry

Thanks for the praise..

You need to make another trip loads of new buildings and scenes

I think it will look awesome there!!

Robert,

Just got back on the forum and noticed you posted some more pictures of your layout and the station. I recognized the location right away. Thank you for putting it such a wonderful place. Now I want to see it in person, but I'm going to have to wait. Keep posting more pictures as you work on the scene. The relationship of the station and hotel are perfect. Seeing the station makes me want to start on the next one - for my layout. I made enough parts for three. yours, mine and my neighbor's. I am working on Chester where my station will go and have a couple of builds to complete the town.  I'll post some pics once I get started on station #2. In the meantime, keep up the beautiful work. I hope everyone enjoys the building.

Happy New Year to you and your family.

All the best,

Frank / Erieman

Frank

As I promised if would have a awesome spot!!!

Also for all to know the hotel has a special meaning to me.

It is in honor of my father Art Seckler who passed away in April of this year.

I had a rough time w/ his passing and did not model for 2 months or so!!

When I finally got back into modeling ,I decided I wanted my first model to be in my fathers memory.

He and my mother loved B & B so Art's Hotel

So this for him!!

Rest in Peace DAD!!!

Robert,

Very sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. I lost mine in the summer of 2011 and think of him every day!

The location for the station seems the perfect spot. Art's Place is fantastic looking and the perfect location fit as well.

If you hate plan A, you are certainly not going to like plan B!

Nice pics Robert. Of course, I'm partial to the station  ;) ;) ;) More pictures please. An overview would be nice. Keep up the nice work.

Robert,

In the last photo, the vehicle bridge (green) - who makes that bridge?  And what color did you use for the green?  You've really captured the essence of a vehicle bridge nicely!
