Trapped In Modeler's Limbo

I can't start on the Lakeside Inn until my Grandt Line doors and windows arrive - waiting on my supplier to get them all in stock.  It's been three weeks since I've worked on anything, and it's driving me nuts!  The impatience got the best of me tonight.

A few weeks ago, I purchased a book of standard drawings from the Missabe Railroad Historical Society, offering official structural drawings of assorted railroad structures.

One of the drawings is for a small hand car (aka "speeder") shed.

I have just the spot for one, and building it should keep me occupied for a couple of weeks.  Let the construction begin!  Here are the 6"x8" sills, topped with 2"x6" floor joists, just like the drawing shows.


  1. I've been looking for a book like this I think.
    It wouldn't happen to have drawings for the Knife River depot in there would it?

  2. Nope, no depots... Lots of other neat stuff though?
