Greg, really looking forward to your build of this great model. Bob produced some of the best craftsmans kits, and this one is loosely based on a Dick Elwell structure, as well as a prototype.
Sure looks a great lot of castings. Should be fun
I liked it so much, I did a scratchbuild of it in N scale.

My current build.

Greg, What a way to commemorate your upcoming (forum) anniversary and imminent elevation to Engineer!

This will be yet another great example of how much you contribute to the forums here!
I'll be following along.

Rob, the instructions say "This kit was first conceived as a replacement for the Diesel shop on Dick Elwell's Hoosac Valley Lines. Dick had finished a major revision to his yard by installing a very personalized, seven stall version of SRMW brick roundhouse.
After several folks previewed the roundhouse, it was mentioned that the only thing left to do was replace the aging plastic engine house that had been on his layout for 2 or 3 decades."
You indeed did a masterful job on your N scale scratchbuilt version of this structure.
Thanks for posting the link to that build!
Great to have your interest in this!

Greg

Bill, you have indeed been a great supporter of my work here, and I'm always very appreciative of that, and what you have to say!(especially when it comes in the form of a pun!}
Great to have you with me once again!

Greg

Greg,

That looks like a superb kit, especially in being based on a prototype structure. And itís an appropriate one to get you your promotion to Engineer.

Mike, all of the SRMW kits look superb!
I thought I'd start with this one, since I'm going to need a place to put my engine.

Greg, look forward to following this build. I owned kit, but was too big to fit in my HO rail yard as already had 9 stall roundhouse. I am envious and will have to vicariously build as you once again do a masterful job.
