Stay up and be the first to meet the Sun I guess, except you'd beat me to it by default based on location ;)

Speaking of buildings, if needing even more information, there exists a large series of small books called "Images of America" which presents many photos of small towns and historic events, often showing the architecture of the area the book covers. If you know what town you're looking for, or at least the state it's in, you can order a book or two about the area from the publishing company directly:

Or save some money and buy from amazon.com:

I looked at the HAER buildings. From what I can tell, they are certainly a good source, but many of the buildings appear to be of Victorian era styles. For someone modeling the civil war era, those plans would be great.

James: In the words of the C&W song - "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" , the bars will always be closed & the sun up here long before you - it's practically next week here already !. Thanks for the Arcadia link.

Woodie: Bet you get some funny looks arriving at a campsite with that stuck on the side of your RV. For really wacky RV's, check out RV photos from New Zealand.

The point really is, they didn't want any blade runners as it turns out.

Time you lot Knuckled down to some proper modelling.

(I'm assuming that 'Knuckle' is the correct term in US speak).

Yessir, we knuckle under your command.
I promise to continue with fitting R/C + battery + SMPS into a very tiny loco's cab.

Here is the single/double switch (puzzle switch) photo that should have been included in my original post but delayed by computer problems.





Photo by me in Poland 2011. The main 'Diagonal' road that cuts across & connects to all the Yard tracks & to the Through Main.

This type of Yard layout very typical of Poland, Germany, France, Italy; less used in Spain & almost never in the UK. UK Yards are 'fans' of parallel roads.
