Bernd, That is a great area. Buffalo to the west and Rochester to the east. Rt 19 runs North & South. NYS thruway smack in the middle...
It takes me back to when I was a little kid. My folks had a Gulf station and one of the first convenience stores for one summer up that way. They went broke and we wound up in Kingston for a while....This was in between railroad jobs on the NYC. My Mother loved to travel and explore. Dad would get reassigned, and we wind up somewhere new, until she waned travel again....But that's another entire chapter.....

Ok, more info. My contacts came through. Harold Russell wrote an article on the Leroy New York structure in the June 2010 Model Railroader. The building was a grain mill or something. I don't have any MR's past 2008. If somebody has this issue I'd like a copy if possible.

Hold the phones guys. That was the wrong issue. More info just got to me. One of my friends came through with flying colors.

The building was/is a small grain elevator. The name of the company was Beamer & Green Produce. The plans are in the September 1972 page 46 & 47 issue of Model Railroader. They were done by Harold Russell Jr.

And there seem to be kits available in HO, S & O scales. http://www.altoonamodelworks.net/Reamer%20&%20Green%20Produce.html

I have that issue of MR. As a matter of fact my MR issues start back in the early 60's to 2008.

Bernd

NOTE: Update. The drawings are in TT scale no less. Looks like I'm going to need to build this one then.

I signed up today for what I though also that you can get what was in an issue. All they give you is the date and who wrote it, but nothing of the article itself. You either have to buy a copy or have someone copy it for you.

Altoona makes great models. Their version is exactly like the real thing!.. Personally, bernd,
I like the one in Bergen for some reason. I think it's the small office in front. Looks like
many of my section houses....

Very interesting industrial scene from WWII Baltimore, with structures that date to the 1890s or so: http://www.shorpy.com/node/18560?size=_original#caption That middle building in particular looks "modelable" :-)

I'm guessing though the gable building was part of a larger complex that has been revised. There's no obvious people entrance. The buildings to either side don't seem to be from the same architecture/facility. (I'd bet there was a yard where the buildings on the right are now.)

Dave, That is a very interesting photograph. For more then reason. April, 1943, the month and year my wife was born!!!! And yes a great model potential prospect. I wonder if the middle section was a freight terminal of some type originally???

This is a new reface on an original 1800s building in Wakefield, RI, A building supply store that was redone
this August. It is on main street. It is exactly refurbished to look as it did when first constructed....This could be easily modeled.. Louis', have you seen this since it was refinished in August. It made the front page of the Narragansett Times'''....
