Nice looking flagstop shelter.

A photo of the protoype is here: http://newtownline.wikia.com/wiki/Huntingdon_Valley_Station
I believe there was an article on this flagstop in the April 1979 RMC.

I need to apologize for my lack of attention to the Maine Highlands thread. I haven't been doing a whole lot but the main reason I haven't posted anything is I was having all kinds of problems with downloading photos to my old computer. Well I have solved that problem by getting a new one. Of course this one has Windows 10 and that is a whole different story. Now to see what happens when I upload a picture since I can't find a simple way to resize pictures.
Anyway, this is a quick shot of my latest project - the Blairstown General Store kit.






Seems I guessed correctly on resizing!

Hopefully, I will be getting you more progress reports on a timely basis.

Dave

By the way, it's a glorious day - baseball season has arrived.

More photos of the general store -





Kind of screwed the next one up.












Now to find a neat place for it on the layout.

Next kit is a Laser Art Structures Backwoods Junction Station. It's based on the 2 foot narrow guage Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington Railway Wiscasset, Maine station. I've decided the small station I made before just wasn't going to cut it. I think this one will fit the planned scene much better.

As always any comments or suggestions are welcome.

Dave

Nothing to report, well there is, just not right now. I just want to get the thread back to the top. I plan on taking pictures and posting this weekend. I do have a question. How would I get video from my phone up to the forum?

Hi Dave, some nice developments. I've always loved the look of the whitewashed general store adorned with signs. Looks great.

As for the flag stop, I echo Dan's comments...either a raised platform or you could scratchbuild a small foundation...although flagstops in general are most likely small structures just resting on the ground...or the raised platform.

Okay. I think I have refreshed my memory on posting and resizing pictures. We will see soon enough.

The first 2 are of the completed (more or less) general store scene.




Seems the roofers have to get to work.



The next 3 are of Woodland Scenics Chip & Dales barrel factory. I know I'll probably get some flak about using pre-built structures but at my age I find increasingly difficult to build kits.
The layout will probably be a half and half split between kits and pre-built structures.















I will try to pay more attention to posting
stuff.

Dave

Dave,

Not a thing wrong with pre-built models.

Thank you for posting new pictures.

Mike
