    Two inches works out to around 14.5 feet in 1:1 scale. I think the prototype center is 14 feet.

    Here is the latest structure built to be added to my layout. Another Taylor-made (Doug Taylor that is.) structure; the Missouri Pacific Depot in Cape Girardeau. I have to add the signs.

    Keith,

    Does that ever bring back memories! In my early years at Trinity Lutheran School, I used to sit by the windows and crane my neck to see the Mopac job run out Independence Street every afternoon.

    Wonderful times.

    Thank you for modeling them.

    Is this the Doug Taylor that models the Pennsylvania & East Broad Top RR?
