Sanders Flagstop Model

I still have a couple more Sandy RIver Car Shops models to build.
I built this structure back in 2015 and posted photos regarding construction but not many of the finished model. Here are two more...George Dutka

All the weathering was done with Bragdon Powders.

Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. and Museum

Sept. 11 2016
At the end of the 2016 National Narrow Gauge Convention in Maine Don Janes and I stopped at the Narrow Gauge Museum in Portland, Maine for a visit. I had been by here before but during a period when it was closed. It was a treat to see what was on display inside...here is what we saw...George Dutka

There was a lot more than I expected inside to see although photographing the equipment was not the best.



The coaches and combines were open to walk through.

Harrisburg O scale Narrow Gauge meet date change

A new date.
The O scale narrow gauge meet group are hoping things will change by the fall...I noted the date change recently. I would love to attend but unfortunately due to my age I doubt I will be doing any traveling till there is a vaccine for the pandemic...George Dutka

Don Janes and I visited Maine Narrow Gauge museum in Portland, Maine during the 2016 national narrow gauge convention. We were actually on our way home and stopped in to check it out. In these photos Don and I are posing for each other...kind of goofing around on our way back to the parking lot...more photos of the museum to come...George Dutka

Now it is my turn on the rear of the coach.
