Sorry, Karl, my slow pace reference was to my slow pace of getting the layout actually built. Not the stuff that goes on it. That's probably moving too fast. I'm running out of storage room.

Fred, As stated by many members, you have created a completely perfectly crafted fine scale model of the finest caliber. As you know I am a fan of your style of construction. And this masterpiece is one of your best works indeed. But everything on that ensemble is pretty darn good also'..

Fred,
I keep checking back again and again, and it gets better with every look. Now that you've got a handle on this, time to build a whole street full of them!
Both you and Bob have a lot to be proud of, both are IMPRESSIVE!

Thanks, Ted and Rich.

I'll probably hold off on building anymore tenements for a while. I think I've quelled that hunger.

Fred,
Impressive is the only way to describe the tenement build. It looks great around the other buildings.
Everyone would like to have this structure for their own but you went out and made it happen...well done!

Terrell, your tenement is a rousing success and a masterpiece to boot.

Fred,

I simply love that street of houses and shops. If I were you, building structures like these, and creating a layout, Iím not sure Iíd allocate any space to track. Maybe just enough track for railroad structures.

Thanks, Ray, Bob, Dave and Frank !!

Mike, I don't plan on a lot of track. I'm really not into operations and switching. Maybe if I had unlimited space but I have to fit everything into a 12x16" space. So far there's not really much directly railroad related except for this coaling module. I have to work it in.

Terrell, I'm going to tell you my little secret.............

I'm the same way, my model railroad is simply an excuse for me to build structures. I have way
more structures than I have room for on the layout which has been basically completed years
ago. My plan was to make new structures to replace older models but it has not worked out
that way. I just keep making structures.

I guess we all fit into different areas of the hobby, do what pleases YOU.

Bob

Yeah, Bob, that's me 100%.
And I generally do follow that philosophy.

Well that makes 3 of us. My Wrecker's Reef was an excuse to design and build my own structures. It has track and rolling stock that
operate very well. And they too were another excuse to modify to my heart's content. I have nothing that's out of the box.

Real nice seeing that gray masterpiece in context, even if that won't be its settled home. I second those who encourage you to work these structures into a layout. My own model railroad planning recently has been structure-centric, though I'm working in the operations from the beginning so as not to have to shoe-horn them in later. I have a switching railroad that I built and enjoyed, but was disappointed that I didn't leave enough room for structures. In my mind's eye I had envisioned more structure space. It is a balancing act between tracks, streets and structures and I suppose we all have our own definition of what we prefer.

One last 'great job' on the tenement.
