close-up of a burned-out commercial zone, inspired by the South Bronx.
These buildings are all easily available, but look amazing with the proper paint and signs.
The fictitious South Jersey Terminal RR
The warehouse in the background is from Downtown Deco, the "Arrow" sign is scratch built.
A double track el viewed from a trackside window.
My new R17s roll over the Plastruct el in a scene reminiscent of the Bronx IRT. I didn't have the heart to graffiti on the cars, though.
R17s again. The foreground building here is a DIY plaster casting. The street which the el traverses is a bit too narrow for NYC, though not for Chicago.
Life-Like R-17s run over the plastruct el. A wide assortment of buildings are visible, including a Bachman skyscraper in the corner. This scene looks like Long Island City on the Flushing Line near Queensboro Plaza.
Looking up from under the el.
The back of the row houses, complete with weeds and junk.
The building has been rotated on the site for a different view.
This is an SS limited Resin casting of an old Msgnuson Models Building. There used to be a grocery store on this site, but I upgraded!
Athearn RDCs on branch line service
Former freight house, now an outlet store
M1 car on display in Philly. The graffiti was hand drawn, and some test third rail is also visible.
The back of the buildings in Philly with two new buildings in back.
This building was cast from parts from an IHC mansion. The awning was scratchbuilt to resemble those on every NYC corner.
From far away, its hard to tell that there are no tracks below this switcher. We are above the tunnel in Philly.
Gondola parked next to junkyard (on other side)
