Streeters and Clear Brook Progress

Not a great deal of progress in the basement this week, but I did manage to get the feed mill (the "Clear Brook portion of the Streeters and Clear Brook kit) basically assembled and installed on its foundation. There's a metal sheathed warehouse addition that's not shown - it's currently in the paint booth drying!

Although I like the basic lines of this kit I find it, like most "craftsman" kits are really too overly compressed to justify rail service. At least this one doesn't have a lot of weird additions and oddball architectural elements - meaning that I may use it in town as a feed and farm supply store - it will just receives supplies via the team track and not a dedicated siding.
