Only just caught up with this one after a long absence. Really like the cold store, Jordan, and the story behind the various doors adds verisimilitude.

Just off to look up what "verisimilitude" means.... Shocked Embarassed Laughing

Thanks, Jack. You'll no doubt have noted the better view of the Greenbrier Midland boxcar.

... following posting pictures here before, the general consensus of you Gentlemen was that they are too small for O scale.



Having taken this picture I have to admit you're right. They need replacing with wider, taller structures- probably means less silos, but they'd be more believable. Large plastic soil or drainpipe from B&Q/Wickes etc is a llikely candidate, but WHEN I get around to doing that... don't hold your breath.... Crying or Very sad


Still under construction; but what do you think of these...?


This shows the old pringles tubes alongside...


And starting to look the part, with the Soo Hopper in front for size...

Really nice work Jordan. I remember seeing some of these driving across the northern USA and Canada and they are huge: those do look the part.

Excellent work Jordan - a prairie cathederal if ever there was. Definitely looks like something the mighty Soo Line would serve.

You are also making a good case for O scale.

Thanks
Ken

Embarassed Not sure what case that is; that you need a bit of space, perhaps...??? Confused Embarassed Laughing Laughing

I have printouts of the photos that have now disappeared from the thread - if needed send me an email to chacmool at lineone dot net (No spaces and use appropriate symbols for words)

Yes, my apologies. As this thread was more or less defunct, no comments since 2009, & the layout itself was scrapped in 2010, I had a clear up of photos on Photobucket, & have also deleted some from my files as well. Interest in the layout was renewed recently in one of Jack's Topics on RMweb, hence the revival of it here. I have reinstated photos on this thread where I could.
Looks like I should apply to photos the old philosophy for modelling - Never Throw Anything Away...!!! Rolling Eyes Embarassed Very Happy
