New Truck for the W&Q

I have done a bit of work to my Winn-Dixi bread truck that I posted about back in on January 5th of this year. I used a billboard advertisment that I colour copied to a size that would fit on the side of my truck. I then added the smaller logo to the doors. I think it looks a lot better now....George Dutka

The Details

The milk cans are from Berkshire Valley as are many of the other details used in this scene.
I was going through my photos the other day and came across these two detailed photos of my W&Q freight house. Don't think I have shown you these before...just getting back into modeling mode following the summer and fall at the lake...still lots of photos from the NNGC to post...George Dutka

The screen door is a plastic offering, I believe from Grandt Line. I like modeling my doors as part way open as it seems to add more interest to the structure.

Turner's Dairy Car - Wiscasset, Maine

Open for business this old Maine two footer had a nice display inside, Sept. 2016.
One of the display's I visited was the Turner dairy car near the old ROW in Wiscasset, Maine. It was open with a nice display all through the NNGC. A nice looking car...George Dutka

A really nice looking car.

One wall of the display.
One can also shop and get some seafood at the same location.

Gone but not Forgotten

The rails are gone but the ties still remain on the SR&RL in this undated photo...but not forgotten by us Maine modelers. This is one of the photos I purchased from a nice collection Mark Harris was offering this spring at Schomberg, Ont. Since then I picked up another dozen or so at the NNGC which I will share with you once I scan them onto my computer.
