If you have an interest in modelling urban industrial railroading, as I do, maybe grab a coke and watch some of this video of the Florida East Coast and CSX in Miami, Florida. 39 minutes long, there's lots of trains and all kinds of interesting trackside stuff to see in this video. I found this video through Lance Mindheim's excellent blog, but the link below should take you directly to the video. You can link to Lance's blog here through the sidebar.
Got a vacant space on your layout? How about giving something like this a try...A vacant lot, an old 26 foot trailer, roll-up door (well, what's left of one) with panels in two different shades of colour, no license plate, 2 or 3 broken out tail-lights, no tread on the tires, rusty frame, not to mention the junk laying around inside...could be a winner. This scene is located about 100 feet from the Sarnia VIA station.
Meanwhile, as for the JSSX layout, this next photo was intended to feature an industry building that I've recently gotten back to kitbashing. I guess I never realized just how "busy" the area around my workbench truly looks.
Here's the (slightly out of focus - sorry) view of that same new building in place on the GTW line of the layout, with two boxcars spotted and a Schneider Transport trailer at the truck dock.
