While my focus over the past two years was on building the LAJ layout, my “main” model railroad continues to be the Downtown Spur. Although I haven’t added anything to it in a few years, I have maintained it and operate on it regularly. With the LAJ now done, and a Brooklyn N scale layout on the docket for next year, I decided to double back and do some more work on the spur. Next up is Cuba Tropical Produce on 13th Avenue. If ever there was a structure that screams out, “This is Miami!”, Cuba Tropical is it.
The core was constructed of .060″ sheet styrene. The foundation is from 1×4 PVC “lumber”. Color will be applied via photo laminates. How do you like my sophisticated work bench consisting of a ragged sheet of MDF on a trash can?
