I have become involved with a group of shadowy individuals, we call our selves the Junction City N-Scalers. We have been hashing out plans for our club layout that we are planning to begin construction on in August. In the meantime I have been given the task of designing and building the structures on one of the modules. So far I have the elevations done for the depot & the co-op/grain elevator. I hope you can click on them to view a larger version other wise you wont be able to see much.

Just sharing some new pictures of the EL progress. The main station walls are done and the roof has a little more work left. The aqua on the roof is just overspray and will be a faded red when done. So enjoy

This is something else that I am working on, this is the Dominion Building. The prototype is in Vancouver British Columbia, I fell in love with this building about a year ago and wanted to model it. A few major changes that I did were first the obvious color, I like the original but I changed it because it doesn't look right for the feel that I want. Second I changed a few other elements of the building for space reasons. The building is currently in a holding pattern until I learn how to mass-produce windows, I have about 70 left to frame.

This is just a few photos of my current project, it is based on the Bedford Park Station in New York, it was part of the 3rd ave. EL that was torn down in 1973. The prototype has three tracks but due to space constraints I took it down to two. Also the prototype is about 15' from street to bottom of girder clearance. I had to increase this to 26' so if I needed to have a double stack train roll under it.
