Hussar Grain Elevators - 1957

I just received this photo from Dick Clark, taken in 1957. You can see 2 Alberta Wheat Pools, an Alberta Pacific, Pioneer and one other. I remember seeing Hussar with an elevator row years ago.... but it looked quite different from this!

Thanks again Dick!

Finally... an N Scale Cardstock Elevator

After about 9 hours of work.... I finally designed up an N-Scale elevator of the now demolished Morinville, Alberta United Grain Growers elevator. I have it next to a Alberta Wheat Pool from Stirling Alberta to show the difference in size!

All in all, I think it turned out pretty good... but I will admit I hate doing hip roof elevators... they can never seem to fit together perfectly!
