The Santa Ysabel store still looks almost exactly the same. Here's a recent photo:

I came across this building on a trip to the Ocean State. Built in 1899. Look at the details on this. It was definitely built for a layout...in any scale...and easily customized to fit your theme..

That's an interesting looking building, Ted. If you build it it has to be visible from all sides to get the full effect.

George, the original has bee added to many times. It is actually a triangle/corner sort of of structure. The right hand side with the over hang and a very long lower added extension is the most fascinating part of the structure.. Why don't you take a crack at building a version of it...

Ted, 10 years ago, Bruce (Dutchman) made that challenge after posting a picture here. I took up the challenge and we both did a build of the building. http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8143

It's tempting, but I have too much on my plate right now. (I'm saving copies of the pictures)

Hey Ted. That building looks as if Art Curren scaled up one of his creations and plonked it down full-size on that bit of land. The mix of materials and styles, with zero regard for the original design definitely make it "modelgenic."

Hey Jeff, modelgenic." I said the exact same thing to my wife in the car when we passed by this structure.

I abruptly made a U turn, and she asked "WHAT ARE YOU DOING..." I have to photograph that building, I replied. Luckily, there was a shady spot to park the car across the street.

Here is something for all you random stone lovers.. Your little dream cottage. What a great fun build this would be in balsa foam or plaster...

Hey Ted,
Why don't you upload your pictures of your completed model? I'm Sure you must have already had a jump start on the next challenge with these gems!

Rich and Frank, I have a bunch of DPM pieces I never used. I think I'll bash them together with wood and see if it will resemble the 1899 structure... Should be fun...

Ok, calling this a "structure" is stretching it, but didn't know where else it might get posted since it's sort of one of a kind photo.

We haven't had rain here in awhile, fires along the right of way are a likely possibility. A detail like this might be a solution if you're like me and reached into your layout only to hear a 'CRAck'.
