Good morning! It's cold here - Wayne Olson called me from a AZ desert park to tell me it was 78 degrees there.   I told him it was 81 and I was in the gazebo grilling steaks.  I think spring fever is setting in.  :-[  I hope everyone has a great day.

Wow, John, cheez. Shades of John Allen. Looks great. Phenomenal.

Can't agree more.  Amazing stuff John.  I can't wait to see what you come up with as I am sure it will be spectacular.


Bruce


Thank you, I never know how it is going to come out but I have a plan. There is a lot of work/ "fun" before we will see how it turns out. ;)

Wow - thank you for the kind words. It was reading the book on John Allen's life that got me into the hobby so many years ago - so there has to be an influence.

John,
        I don't get to visit this site as much as I'd like with my new job, but when I do it's really refreshing to see what all has been posted.  It's nice to see all the wonderful pictures you've enhanced with the track level videos from Franks camera.  I'd enjoyed running the trains for everyone those days when George allowed intimate photography of his wonderful layout.

You've done an excellent job with making these video frames a sight to remember.  George is an awesome example of what one can do with a little talent and imagination.  You, yourself are a talented modeler and have imagination with posting these incredible pictures of perhaps the most talented modeler since John Allen.

I just love and can't believe the detail George has mastered in every scene.  He is truly an artist's artist.  Look forward to each next pic you develope.  Thank you Frank for allowing me to develop the original footage for this pictorial. 
                                                        Thanx Thom....


Thom


Great to hear from you.  George's talent is a great inspiration to all of us.  We all had a great time taking these pictures and it is my pleasure to post them.  Thank you for all of your help. At some point I will post some of the pictures of your smiling face along with the rest of the gang that was there helping. Take care my friend.

The original rock bunker model was built by Gil Frietag and I photographed it at the Houston Narrow Gauge convention.  George used Gil's model as an inspiration for his kit. 


I have a thread in the layouts section of the forum if you want to take a look.

STROMBOLI'S soon to be replaced.   The name is familiar but I am unsure which structure it is and where it is/was on layout.

Stromboli's is the grey concrete building in the middle of the picture above.  If you go up a few picture on the page in the thread you will see parts of the  name on the side of the building. It's behind Johnny's.

John,


Just got caught up on this thread.  It is yet another amazing build from your workbench. Thanks for sharing this with us and for posting all the photos.


Jerry


Thank you for following along.  I'm really enjoying this build. These old wood buildings are really fun to build - I see more in my future. I have some scratch build projects on the drawing board.
