Lee, 

I live in Central NC. This week my schedule is already full so I won't be able to make it. 

Best, 

John

You cannot have a model of the Linville Depot without their signature flower boxes. Here they are in O scale with scale dirt and flowers.


Not sure what flowers these are. JTT models calls them “O scale Roses.” My wife informs me you cannot grow roses in flower boxes. Mr Chris Ford was hoping for pansies……. so maybe. Or perhaps these are carnations?? Anyway they are flowers and are in flower boxes.


I think it was quite classy of the ET& WNC to put flower boxes on their rustic Depot in Linville. These little details did require 13 individual parts, for each box, to construct including their supports.


Thanks for looking. Dr. Tom

Lee,

I called yesterday and did not get an answer. I then looked on the website and sent an email. I have not heard anything back yet. The items I am wanting to donate are pictures including one of the Boone Depot.

Best,

John,
Were you able to contact the restaurant?
I went by yesterday and they were slammed.
They are interested in purchasing a G scale train set and they need some advise.
What would be a good buy on the upgraded Bachman and say 3 cars still in the box?
When I say upgraded, we're talking the one with the metal valve system, chuffing sound, lights, etc.
Thanks,
Lee

Neat!! The #9 rounding the bend at the store is a classic rural East Tennessee shot. Very nice.  Dr Tom

Hey Brian, sorry about that. I'll check and see what the issue is...you should have immediately gone to the download.

I'll get with you off-list with the download link.

Thanks for sticking with me while I navigate the technology whitewater rapids!  :)

Anyone else that runs into this problem...please email me and I'll get you the download. Thanks!

Once again, my apologies!

Hi Chris,
I think your website download process may have an issue. I just paid $19.95 for the aerial photos but was not "redirected to the download page".

I sent you an email from my yahoo account about this but thought I would try you here too.
