Some prototype photos

Since I’m rebuilding, let’s start with some prototype photos to give new visitors an idea of what I’m trying to capture in S scale.

Thanks to noted railway photographer Robert Sandusky, I can share this picture of the Lynn Valley water tank:

Three pictures from the Keith Sirman collection show some activity in Port Rowan:

My thanks to these three gentlemen for sharing their photos with me.

I took this photo of tobacco kilns, which are ubiquitous in the area. I’ll add some of these near St. Williams:

I also took some photos of a steel girder bridge and a trestle in the Lynn Valley. Both are modelled on the layout:
