Building Pix

Home Up Out on the Rails Modeling Projects RxR Radio

As the building structures are planned, purchased and built and prior to their placement on the physical layout, we'll show them here. Where the structures have not been built, I'm showing a catalog picture.  Once built, I'm currently using my Olympia camera at its minimum focal length and a portrait setting to take these pictures. I want to get closer, so I have a ViCAM Video camera, from Vista Imaging, in order to get instant digital images.  It has a super close-up lens, so I'll be able to get right down on the track.  This camera is planned to provide online videos and stills for this website. 10/24/99
