Baxter's photos & prototype
- 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
