This is a small street scene from "Friendship Falls" - a six foot N Scale "balloon" module I built with help from members of my train club - hence the name Friendship Falls.  This type of module is called a "balloon" because it is basically a round loop of track that sits at the end of a long string of straight modules in order to send a train back in the opposite direction.  The track path is basically the shape of a balloon.  I built the four word buildings in the center of this image.  The one on the left is a laser-cut kit and now often travels to my club's annual model train show as part of my drive-in module.    The building on the far right was built board-by-board with scale lumber (it's supposed to look rustic - as though some boards were replaced over time).  I made this building when my son Anthony was very young and named it "Tony's Grocery and Supply Co." in his honor.
