I am continuing the tradition of starting out a new month with a commemoration to one of our best who is no longer with us.

Thanks for starting the new month. I always wanted to put a mill pond on my layout but opted for one on the backdrop instead. 
 
I think this FSM gas station would qualify as an old timey building.

I need to work on the wires going in to the cabin's cupola. You can't expect the manufacturers to get everything correct.

Lets see more signs of radio equipment or lettering. Thank you.
