Thanks for SPF Fife! Yes

I had posted this on the coffee pot but thought when I did I would put it on SPF.

Well here is what I did this week to help out a building I placed on the layout I got for Christmas.. I have a box of stir sticks I got years ago to build othe stuff for the layout. I like them because they are 7.5" long and thinner than popsickle sticks. Cut the ends to square them then broke them up, put them in a old cast iron skillet and lit them up 8 or 9 times with my torch in the shed to burn them. Then I placed some small rocks, some of my home made ballast, then put the burnt sticks around on top. I think it will work.

Wow, that's a grim subject, an engine-house fire aftermath with a toasted steamer in the ruins!  Crying  

GREAT modeling, though!

Cumberland looks great.  Nice work.

Thanks to everyone who is posting.  Its great to have SPF up and running again.

I am trying to set up a place to take photos at the new house.  This is the first attempt.
