Mike, I have been scrolling through your 44 pages of documentation. I have to say that I am amazed at just how you have truely captured the feel of the area that you are modeling. I love that "branch" and have often wanted to maodel it myself.

As a side note, I just finished (tonight) a scratchbuild of and old store over the mountain from you in Sevierville, Tn.

Well I just realized I started this thread four years ago! Not counting future stagings yards (if I ever get that far) we are only talking fourteen square feet of scenery and I still got about 7 square feet to go .
I just keep repeating:

Mike my definition of this hobby.

If your having fun it's a hobby,If your not having fun it's a job.

I figure you must be having fun because you just keep right on doing "it" right.

Looks like a great project Mike. Your preliminary fitting looks real good together. The flatcars look great also, in fact passed by some empty ones yesterday in Pascagoula and thought of yours, compared them in my head (I was driving)and thought 'Hey, they look almost as good as Mike's":-)

I had an old crew car by Dimi-Trains that I had built when I got back into modeling as an adult. If I were to do this today I would change a couple of things but as my first car kit ever and my skills being even crappier back in 1979 than they are today I'm happy with it. Anyway I decided to make a storage shed out of it as I model the mid 60's and wooden cars were toast by then. When I was a kid we lived about three blocks from a small FEC yard and they had an old boxcar sitting between the tracks with a door in the end of it and figured that would be a good way to site this one. I think their's was a double wooden door but I used a roll-up as I had one on hand.

Very nice Mike.I think I have an old boxcar or two (slightly newer style) that would work for me.I think that roll up door is purrfect.

Oh ,I still think that is one of the nicest Pikestuff engine sheds I've seen.I will definately be painting mine when I get that far.
