Rick, I gotta agree with everyone else.
This new building looks better.
Nice work.


As you think, so will you be.

I think the new building changes the look at the area and is a great addition. Nice work.

I like the new building too, Rick, although the Clever Models cardstock building looks pretty darn good in itself.

Who makes the office building that is attached to the end? Or is it scratchbuilt? I like the roof treatment on that building. Well, both buildings!

Thanks, Al...the office building is a photo laminated to an illustration board "box", a la Lance Mindheim. I grabbed the texture from http://www.cgtextures.com/, glued it to a box, then added some details to spiffy it up. The roof is also a photo texture (from the same site if memory serves).

Thanks, as always, Rick... CG Textures is a great site. I've used their concrete textures before, but never really pursued the buildings or roofs. Some interesting stuff there.

Rick, the new building looks great. I glad that you have had time to work on the railroad in between the snow storms!

This will probably be the last of the Market Street updates; with all of the customers finally in place and the street texture down, the only things left to futz with are the details, some of which I've already added like signs, telephone poles, street lamps, etc. Looking back in my photo file, this section was first started almost two years ago this month with Mark and Bruce lending me their benchwork expertise (I'm a lousy carpenter). Some parting shots:

View looking towards Barrett Shingles:

Rick, your links did not work, but I copied them to view your pics and WOW, you have been busy! That area looks awesome and I can't wait to see it in person. It's been a while since I've visited the HTRR and I can see I am due for an inspection trip. What a treat!

Things went a bit awry and into "lock down" mode as I was attempting to post, so that's why it didn't come through correctly....here's Round Two:

Street level view towards Barrett Shingle:

Looking towards the GE Harrisburg shop and siding:

Corner....CB&I has gotten some fencing, a parking lot, and some details thrown around:

Closer view of CB&I loading area; the cylinder rack is in, but the cylinders themselves have yet to be painted:

Finally, a panoramic shot of the entire area:

There's some ballasting left in the back areas that will necessitate disassembling and cleaning everything one last time; additional details will be added as they pop into my mind. Stilled needed is a valance that will need to dodge the overhead piping and help frame the scene better as well as get a coat of flat black on the fascia as well.

Rick,

I've become quite a fan of industrial railroading, and your scene sure has that gritty industrial area feel to it. Nice job!

Stunning!

Great attention to detail, areas I never would have thought to add the "little things" and it all comes together for a great looking section of the railroad..


Cant wait to see some pics from the next opps session around Market St.
