Next stop on the tour is the repair yard in Tomah and surrounding buildings. First thing you see when pulling in to town is these two trackside sheds.



then you come across this yard gang digging a trench.



old creamery building.



this is a flattend out DPM kit, Tomah café.

Across the street from the café is the Tomah lumber yard. It is a Campbells creamery kit, cut down and made into a lumber yard.



Here is the station which is a kit made by Depots by John, he makes primarily Milw. Rd. kits.



next to the lumber yard is the Tomah Co-op Elevator, it is a GC laser kit with an office added to the front.

The Milwaukee Road never threw nothing away, they were the original HOARDERS. Here is the scrap yard in the Tomah yard using a Monroe Models kit.
