I was thinking of Jaime when I posted that picture. I paid slightly more than $16 for mine.

This weeks structure is the South Manchester Depot. In his book George said that this was the second structure to be added to the Franklin & South Manchester.  Here is a picture of the book - Dave Frary took the pictures.  George told me when we were there that he had a few copies left, if you didn't get to buy a copy give him a call.  My first copy is well worn, so I bought a second copy from George and had him sign it.  Here is a picture of the front cover.

Jaime

Thanks Jaime.  I was sorting pictures last night and came across the structure in Franklin you said was one of your favorites. I'm starting out this thread with the structures I wished George would have picked for a kit.  I think yours should be coming up soon.

After rereading my last post, I think I could go for a couple years at one a week with structures I wish George would have made into a kit.
