Re: Grass Valley Car Repair Shed Model Completed
- David -
Thanks for sharing your car repair shop model, it looks great. I
visited the area several times when I was young and there were
little stubs of narrow gauge rails sticking out from under the
doors. I can remember as a kid peeking through a crack in the North
end door trying to see something in the darkened interior. I was
sure there must be an old narrow gauge steam engine hidden in
there. Of course the building was empty.
Your layout is very impressive. Your Grass Valley depot is very
nice. Is it styrene or wood?

of Osborne Hill (near Union Hill/Cedar Ridge). I have been modeling
the NCNG since the early 70's. I haven't publicize my layout or
modeling except to friends and those that attend my operating sessions.
The Grass Valley depot is wood. The windows and doors are custom
laser cut plywood.
