Hello everyone,

I'd like to know the manufacturer of the yard office, my small empire needs a small house which could also be used for a small desk for the general manager of my shortline.

Stay safe

Tim

Entschuldigung für die Verwechslung.

Hi Tim, Germany is on my bucket list of countries I'd like to visit, but I've not been to Germany yet.
I took German Language in High School, but I also get a lot of help from Google :D

Just a minor update as I continue to add a few more finishing touches to the Midland yard office.
Recent additions are the hand rails for the steps and over head light above the door.


Cheers,
Rich S.

Hi Rich,
Just spent this morning wandering through your thread.  A lovely layout and well done.  Really like what you have done with the yard office that your currently working on.

Trouble it is making me think about what could be done, and with a new garage in the offing that is already earmarked to become a railway road ... hmm :)

I'll be following your progress, so keep going :)

Hi Rich

The yard office is a neat little addition; one I've added to both my layouts recently!

Introducing the Long Valley Industrial Railroad

Yesterday (June 19, 2020) was the first time since the COVID-19 lock down that I've been able to visit my local hobby shop. I'm glad this small family owned shop has been able to weather the storm so to speak.

I added another Penn Central caboose to my growing fleet of Penn Central equipment.

This is the short bay window caboose from Bluford Shops, class N12 and does a very good job of capturing the look of the prototype.






Cheers,
Rich S.

Hi Andy, The closest hobby shop to my home is Hobby Express in Cranberry TWP, about a 10 mile drive. Their website is still under Construction, but they do have a Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/hobbyexpressinc/

Here is a video from the Pittsburgh Train Fanatic of the Hobby Express Hobby Shop in Cranberry.



The next closest Hobby Shop is Esther's Hobby Shop in Millvale, about a 22 mile drive.
Bob, the owner of Esther's Hobby Shop made a little video of the shop.



Here is Esther's Web Page.
