How about a pickup truck?

The pickup truck was part of a dollhouse brand, brought from Hobby Lobby a few years back by my father. It also came with a tractor, but I have no idea where that went.

The farmhouse was free, a member was giving away all sorts of structures at the modular railroad club I belong to. It has a very Germanic-like feel to it.  

The barn is a Bachmann Plasticville, it's previous owner weathered it. I brought it for five dollars at a estate sale. I still gotta get some cows and fencing for it all.

Show me a barn or other structure used for farming, please.

A mind forever wandering from the East to the West, and then back again. Two worlds, miles apart, so different, yet alike.

Here's a few of the boys in Elfrida, cleanin' up the Durabond, in preparation of installing a new shanty for the crossing watchman...

Meanwhile, the crew in South Cayuga was doing similar work there, but had to call in the heavy equipment...

Here's the finished product in Elfrida...

...and the one at South Cayuga looks pretty-much the same...

Filling both requests, here is a barn, and next door there are some little people doing something.

....Show me any depot, station or signal tower, please.

The station at Lowbanks was, I believe, built from AHM's kit for Rico Station.  I switched around the walls somewhat, then painted it in the "company paint scheme"...

I'd guess that its origins are still recognisable, though, but it fits into the limited space available and appears to be well-patronised.

Wayne

If anyone out there has used this same kit, please show it to us.

Another kit bashed station, please.

The main station in Dunnville is not much of a kitbash, but the doors windows are from two Walther's Waterfront Warehouse kits....

...while the rest of it was built from .060" sheet styrene.
