Mike the scene came out great and just goes to show it doesn't have to be an overly weathered building to fit in.

Mike, that is a beautiful little mini-scene. That third shot is a beauty and could well be added to this month's Photo Gallery!

BTW, the owner of the store is wondering if the track crew might add some type of bumper to the end of the siding.

Mike, beautiful job capturig the feel of a Southern country store and eatery. And knowing the area well, I think the name "Tellico" certainly is fitting. Danny

Thanks Lynn, this store is supposed to be earning it's keep so I didn't want a falling down look to it.
Bruce the siding is a temp, not sure if I'm going to leave it there but if I do I certainly understand the store owners concern!
Thanks Danny, I got the name off of a government quad map. There really is a Tellico Gap where this RR would have run.

On a hot summer day in August of 1965 we stand on Depot Street in Tellico Gap and watch as one of the last passenger trains to run the Murphy Branch rolls into town. It's not much of a train really, just one of the Southern's last remaining F-7's and a lightweight combine, dubbed the "Carolina Crawler" by the locals for it's average speed of 25 mph. Without a mail contract anymore and a new four-lane highway opening up soon it's days are numbered. But for now we can exchange a friendly wave with the engineer as that venerable old F unit with it's lone combine in tow rattles through the junction at a blazing 10 mph.

A beautiful scene and photo, Mike. The B&W version is my favorite.

Still playing with the camera rather than model building!

Nice pictures Mike. I like the B&W version above. I also like you you added the text on the bottom. Nice touch.
What looks especially good in both versions are the large trees in the background.

This last picture you posted is also very good. I like the warm muted colors you achieved.


As you think, so will you be.

The last picture showing grain operations is exceptional. You've got me focused on something that is happening somewhere in the "real world" today not on a photo of a model.
