      Richard, Thanks for posting the photos of the kit to the group! It's
      easy to see that George's inspiration came from the 3 part article of
      the Lineside lumber & supply company that ran in Model Railroader in
      the May thru July 1960 issues. The prototype was in Sellerville, PA.
      George greatly modified the whole thing but keep the flavor of the MR
      article by keeping the trestle & the red rear covered board by board
      structure with its drive thru openings & single window at each end.
      The white storage building along the track was moved to the oppisite
      side of the real building & now has shingles added to it. The large
      attached office was changed and has the shape & flavor of the tavern
      behind the seafood company in Franklin. All the green color buildings
      were not part of that construction article. George has done an
      excellent job on his new release and this one should sell out quickly.
      The diorama he has created is fantastic. Can't wait to see this
      yellow box...Tom Boyd
