Structure Era
Posted by CSXFanAlso on Tuesday, November 20, 2001 4:50 PM
Just a quick question regarding Walther's Cornerstone Series Medusa Cement Structure. I originally was going to model a current era railroad, but have decided to go with a 50s-60s era instead. Would the structure in question fit in with this era? Would it possibly be a newer structure? Thanks in advance!

The structure you mention would fit well in a 50's - 60's era layout, or a more recent one.

Matt:Yes it would be ok to use that building in the60s era. on my past layout I used a pike stuff engine house the era was mid 60s.It was the newest engine house on my railroad.you see the old round house was torn down to make room.The Medusa cement looks like a new type of structure that begin popping up around the mid-60s.sadly,it might be a little to modern for the 50s.But,I am not to sure.I hope this helps you in some way.On my pike stuff building that's when they started to show up in the mid 60s.
