For all you maritime modelers I've always thought this Alaskan fish cannery had potential. The little line goes from the dock to the cannery and I guess that's about it.

Thanks Frank!
What interesting photos! The structures seemed built to fit the track plan.


It's only make-believe

Your 1st photo was scratch built by Danny head right on this forum. http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=29351&whichpage=1&SearchTerms=beer



And your last picture was made into a kit by Randy Pepperock of Downtown Deco

Well the scratch built one is a work of art but the kit is not as charming as real life. It's too high and I think that's what destroyed the proportions. Judging by the man in the door way.

Does anyone know where that second photo is located that Ray posted above. All it says is "old store front in small town Michigan". I would like to know which town.

Kilmanagh Michigan. Search that name on Flickr and you will find a lot of pictures of that store.

Don't know why I have this or where I got it. Same place, different view.
