    Thanks Jerry and Bruce. Version 1 of the windows took a hard left to the recycle can. Pilot error!&nbsp

      Jim- I had the same frustration with my project of the Depot/Office. The C&O Historical Society never even acknowledged my contact.


      Carl, sorry I missed this post.

      The printer is an 'Artemis' by an Indiana company about 35 miles north of me. https://www.seemecnc.com/

      Great people to work with, super support.

            They probably needed a train to haul the kegs on that trip. Who wears a Bow tie on a hunting trip? There are a lot of deer in Northern Indiana and Michigan...sounds a little fishy.












            Train that ran at the border of my yard. Westbound out of Churubusco.


            The photos from the 'deep archives' at the History Center. Looks like I'm out of excuses on this one.

              Hi Jim. Nice windows.

              That's a great lot of photo's you've found, which will certainly assist with your build.

              I always find the research & history side of a build a lot of fun, and really adds to the conversation here on the forum.
              Regards Rob

              Despite the cost of living, it's still popular

              My current build.

                Nice progress Jim, more great work with your printer I see, and a great selection of research pictures found.

                  That 'stick style' trim looks like it would be a great project for a Cricut cutter.

                          Carl and Kevin, thanks for the warning! But I think it might be a lot of fun, too!

                          Carl, I think it might have been 'Yellow'. Nobody under a 100 remembers, and digital cameras were in short supply.

                            Yellow seems to be the color of the year.

                            It looks like there are three colors: the light body color, dark trim, and even darker window sash, red or brown, maybe black.

                              Rob and Lou, Thanks for following. I thought I replied to you guys, but must have not hit the send button. Too many moving parts.

                                The picture that looks like the leaning tower of Pisa, is making me think a light brown might have been the body color. That would have been a very early color photo (late 40's). The crew standing in front, look to be wearing dark blue uniforms. Between the color balance on the scanner, monitor, and age, it's hard to get a handle on it. But it'll be a light brown for the body. Maybe...
