Back in 2003, I started the first thread devoted to "Prototype Structures That Cry Out To Be Modeled". When that thread got near 20 pages long, I locked it and opened a follow-up thread titled "Prototype Structures for Modeling, Part 2". My reasoning was that it was becoming difficult for members to page thru the entire thread to find a particular structure that they remembered seeing.
Well, that second thread grew to over 25 pages, so I unlocked the original. Now both threads a huge, and my concerns about the easy of searching for a structure are compounded.
So, it is time to open a third thread devoted to this topic, and to once again lock the first two.
Here are links to those threads for to make it easier for members to find them in the future.
The original "Prototype Structures That Cry Out To Be Modeled": http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4647&whichpage=1
The follow-up thread "Prototype Structures for Modeling, Part 2": http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5840&whichpage=1
I continue to encourage you to take your camera on your travels. As you find a prototype structure that jumps out at you, post the photos here as inspiration for your fellow members.

Came across some slides I took in 1980. This is a NYC station in Ionia, New York. It was on a line called the Peanut Line. The line ran from Canadaguia New York to Niagra Falls, New York. The station was later turned into a private home. It still stands today.

There's a former trolley barn in Somersworth NH that was an auto repair/sales place, and is now being converted to a state liquor store. Looks like the state is doing an 'historically sensitive' job with their renovations.

Found this picture on a Facebook group I belong and thought it might interest some.
Trolley Barn in Trenton, NJ.
It was later converted into a car wash.

One year you forget to paint your shed, and then look what happens!
A great find, Bill.

This would get branded 'cartoonish' if accurately modeled and put on a layout, but here's a shed that until recently had been hidden behind weeds and brush for years.
Found it in Troy, NY before the operating session at the NEB&W this past weekend.

Can't quite make out the name on the front...seems sort of familiar, any wild guesses? I'll buy an "I" :)
