Thanks for the nice comments fellas.

Meanwhile, Larry fired up the engine to provide enough power to move the big log loader a few miles down track.

Just read through this Tom.

Some very nice storytelling and modeling. Sorry I missed part one.

You have my attention now.

Thanks. Lost the earlier photos when photobucket changed.

I had read on another site that photobucket realized they lost a lot with their business decision and now may be allowing folks to repost their older pictures. I will have to check this out.

We are back in business! This summer my old railroad shed gave up the ghost and became termite city.





We tore it down and prepared for a new mini train house.


The Amish/Mennonites from the area in Kentucky in which I work built a new train house that was sledded into a position.



We have finished off the interior with heating and cooling, track lighting, sheet rock walls painted a light blue sky color, small fridge for thirsty railroaders, and flooring.

Today was move-in day and the On30 mini layouts fit nicely. Both the Kentucky winter logging outfit and the Haitian sugar train layout have new digs.







In a couple of weeks I will be back to modeling at the workbench and hope to continue with more railroad themed creations.

Thatís a fantastic looking train shed. And your layouts look beautiful in their new home.

Weíre having a kitchen added to our old house and when siding was removed . . . Surprise! About 6í of sill was virtually gone thanks to termites. Itís probably been that way for decades.

Yeah,Those critters can do a lot of damage.When the workmen tore down my shed they found that the workbench itself had termites in it.So I could not really use it again. Might infect the new building.My old shed was built about 40 years ago.It and all the little squirming critters are now gone.:D]

Tom that new shed is fantastic! Care to let us know the cost? Also what is the size? Is there a second floor or loft?

Hi Tyson.
Thanks for the interest. The Amish built and delivered this for $6,700. As you can see its bare bones on the inside.


We added dry wall, flooring, lighting and AC for about $2500 more.

The building is 24'X 12'. One third is my wife's garden shed and 2/3 for choo choos.

Doc Tom

P.S. I did come with a loft and a work table.
