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

Cannot say enough about these new pix. Since y first visit to the F&SM last summer Iíve become something of a zealot about it. Iím going back this year...just waiting for the open house dates.


Earlier someone asked if George owns the building. I donít want to tread on personal ground, here, but Iíve been thinking a lot about what can be done now to begin planning for the layoutís preservation. Thoughts?

Jimmy bought the molds and the casting making equipment is my understanding. As to thoughts on the layouts preservation - does anyone have pull with the Government.  It would make a wonderful Historic Preservation Site.  It certainly is a work of art.


George is making lots of changes to the layout in his retirement.  I have talked to him about doing another photo shoot in a year or two when he is ready. 


Tom thanks for sharing your newly found pictures.

Dave,

I have a couple hundred more or so.

I believe George does own the building but I understand some in Peabody a applying pressure to buy the entire block along with the F&SM building.
