    Thanks. Yeah, the Märklin VW bus is nice but it’s not laid out the way the LIRR VW buses where so I had to go with a static model.

    Matt,

    The building on the right with the fire escapes is a Micro Structures Gilmore Hotel with additional floors added to it so that its is a five story building instead of a three story one, the taller building to its left I bought on eBay many years ago and don't have the seller's info any more. The two row houses in the front are the sold out TownBuilder System East End Townhouses, which I shortened in length and modified the width to fit my layout.

    Ah! That's why they looked familiar, yet different.. Well done!

    Matt,

    Yes, they are on the upper city level I’m currently working on.

    I took a break from the layout tonight and worked on framing part of the last wall in my hobby room. I plan on having the room finished by the Fall of 2021.

    Enjoy,

    Finished framing in my window and breaker box closet, and installed an accordion door on the breaker box closet. Next I'll start running the electric for the wall outlets.

    Enjoy!
