This 1/4' to the foot model features in "STRUCTURES - SOME THEORY", where I have outlined how the concept  as developed for this diorama. It started from plans of a very simply plain building and hopefully finished as one with plenty of interest. It was also my first stand alone diorama that I had built. Before this all my structures had been built to be installed into a model railroad. However it was installed in an On3 layout called OLD OPHIR.

Above, "ROGERS" can be seen installed on the layout. Behind it an R.G.S. refrigerator car can be seen passing.

OH DEAR . . . SHOCK, HORROR!

After the diorama had been removed from my old On3 layout, OLD OPHIR, it sat around the layout room in a flat box, until one day a baseboard fell onto it, and the result can be seen above. It languished under a bench for a few years collecting dirt, mouse droppings and dust. Eventually I got around to rebuilding it and the result can be seen below, with a few new details added.
