Here’s a few photos of some models I made when I was about 14 years old.. Entirely scratch-built. Mainly out of wooden stir sticks. I had made them for our Lionel train layout.

I hope you all enjoy these!

very cool, it brings back memories of driving across Alberta and Saskatchewan as a child and seeing all the grain elevators. The old wood elevators seem to be dying out though which is sad.
