Here's how this building looked in 1941:

|Atlas Plywood in Richford, shortly before it burned to the ground in October 1954.|
|Approach into the CV's Richford Yard|
|Another "only time I've seen a photo of ..." - the HP Hood Creamery in Richford.|
|In Enosburg Falls, that's a coal dealer shed in the right foreground.|
|Enosburg Falls - note how tight this area was. Basically east of Main Street, West of Plesant Street. Feed mill, with a "Wirthmore Feeds" sign atop the roof barely visible to the left.|
|Video features switching the Condensed Milk Plant at Enosburg (the gray building with all the windows). Pulling (above) and setting out new cars (below). Interesting this sequence shows CV milk cars - and B&M cars.|
|I managed to add some initial scenery to the front corner by the entry to the layout area prior to our open house. I'm happy to report that the trees that were carefully packed up by my father close to two years ago survived the move and storage.|
|I placed the cannery in the front entrance area. The structures, such as the barn in the background and the various buildings visible in the previous photo, are stand-ins.|
|The stationary end of the swing gate|
showing the slot the gate slides into.
|Action shot! The end of the swing gate. Note the |
paint scrapes indicating the friction lock.
|Closed position. I soldered the rail to |
some PC board ties on both the gate
and the layout to help keep the rails aligned.
|A set of Fast Tracks twist ties glued to a piece|
of 1/8" plywood to form the lead into the paper mill yard.
|The White River Junction station, ball signal and shack, all built by Rich Cobb, on the old CV Roxbury Sub.|
