Mario and Ted, thank you for your very nice posts.

Ray, she was available at Shapeways, the site that sells 3-D printed objects for many
designers. I say "was" because the designer has since removed her from sales. There is some kind
of techincal problem with printing her and he is working on a fix.

BTW there are tons of items, figures, furniture, etc. in all model railroad scales available at
Shapeways, some very expensive and some very resonable.

this is the designer and his stuff:

this is the general web site addr:

Moving around to the front area in the bus terminal I want to make a coffee shop. Here's a photo of one in a bus station.




Mine will be MUCH smaller. This is a small town and the station is small. I will make due with what will fit.

In the meantime I used scrap styrene strips and sheets to make this cigarette machine. It is now in the paint-shop.

Just catching up, Bob. That looks great. I took the bus many times to Winnipeg from my home town when I was in high school. Your build and the picture bring back memories of another era.

Not really. I've been busy and any free time I have had of late has been spent mostly outside. You may have seen the videos of Wascana Canyon Railway on You Tube or in Garden Railways magazine. The builder is a friend of mine and fellow club member. This spring he sold his house and moved into a condo with no yard for his G scale. (He also models in smaller scales inside.) I bought his G scale equipment and have been setting it up in my yard. I hope to get back to the sternwheeler again soon.

WOW Bob, I wish I had just 10 percent of the skill you have with plastics: That cigarette machine is incredible.
And the photo also takes me back to my days in the military, traveling by bus to many locations, and having coffee, buying cigarettes, candy, newspapers and magazines. Boy what ever happened to those great spots and days. As mentioned by Jeff, you have brought back fond memories of days gone by...that seem like just yesterday. I remember all the ladies that worked those counters were always so friendly and polite and always made you feel welcomed...

Almost everyone smoked back in 1941 but Charlie dosen't, he is just checking himself in the mirror.

Bob, that cigarette machine looks fabulous!
Even though this photo of it, was taken using smokes & mirrors.

Bob, Your cigarette machine is excellent, and a reflection of the time modeled.

Bob,

I'm really glad you clarified that. I was ready to scream at Charlie before he put the quarter in....

Very nice work, as always. Please keep us in the loop!
