Didn't VA Car and Foundry (Canfield/McGlone) do a kit for that P&R car?

Dave,

You might well be right. The prototype is a little later than the period I model so I never picked one up.

Hi Mike,

When checking my Facebook feed this morning, someone posted a link to this postcard of Ricketts in one of the groups I belong to. Just in case you haven't seen this one, before.

Chuck,

Thank you for bringing my attention to it. I had only seen this photo in print. The postcard has a much higher resolution.

I completed the company store.









The third photo will be the observer's view hen it is on the layout. Yes, the front will face away but I still felt the need to build a complete model.

Nice work Mike.

The white balance on your camera may have been confused, the wall color appears different in every other shot.

What is the actual paint color of the clapboard?

Thank you Larry and Carl.

Carl, yes, my phone was constantly shifting colors as I took the photos. The last photo comes closest to the actual color. The color of the clapboard is called Fawn. Its a craft acrylic. You didnt ask about the trim but Ill add that its Pewter.

Looks really good, Mike. I can hear very faint singing ..."I owe my soul to the company store..."
