Description:
This structure was originally built as a farmhouse, but was soon after converted to the yard offices for the EBT's yard in Orbisonia, PA. The author describes how he took the photos, converted those photos to HO-scale, and constructed the model from those drawings. The walls were cast in plaster, and he even copied the exact layout of the random stones. A sidebar on how to scratchbuild double-hung windows is included. There are many prototype and model construction photos accompanying this article.
