Richmond Creamery - A few words (and more pics) from Wordless Wednesday #115

I received this note from a blog reader early this morning - 

"Marty,

 One or two words on the blog concerning the latest Wordless Wednesday (115?) model might be in order.  Like what is it, where is it going, etc…"

 The building in the picture in Wordless Wednesday #115 is the Richmond, Vermont creamery. 
The model was built by Rich Cobb. Rich has built several structures for me, including the White River Junction and Randolph stations.
On the layout it's going in the corner at the north end of Everett (which I might rename Richmond - especially when one considers that Rich also included a model of the Richmond depot!). I still have to weather the building and add a few additional details. In fact, I've been working on "planting" the building this weekend.  
Here are a few prototype photos of the building - the color shots on the structure in more recent times are from George Dutka - thanks for sharing these George!

  2. Hi Marty,

    I've been following your blog for some time now, and I'm really enjoying following your progress on the layout. The New England feel really comes through well.

  3. That's a creamery worth to be rail-served! Very neat prototype and the white clapboard addition really brings life to the model. I like when the structure aren't too much doctored to look cute. Rich pinned it down perfectly!
