And if it's any consolation Woodie, it's much the same here in the UK. A few bigger on line stores and box shifters but virtually none of the old "just round the corner" emporiums.
Shame but that's commercial life I guess.
And Steven, I should say that the caboose is looking very good. I do like your roof covering method too.

Hi Doug :wave:



You've been pounding the pavements in 'the smoke' for a few years, right ?

Remember any of these ? :-



'Victors' - Pentonville Road

'Kings Cross Models' - York Way

'Beatties' - High Holborn

'Hobbytime' - West Wickam

'Jones Models' - Turnham Green

'The Signal Cabin' - Orpington



Sigh . . .



???

Well I have been pecking at this thing here and there for days, and have not taken images as much as I should have.  I have added hand rails with bent brass.  I also started working up a braking system based loosely on the C&S bobbers.  Keep in mind that I model before the widespread use of airbrakes, so they will not be present.  Get out your brake club.  I also forgot, L:   all pictures loaded to the "Gallery" must have a "landscape" format, so  turn your screen sideways...

Hi Steven :wave:



The Freerails 'Gallery' will accept either Landscape or Portrait formats, no problem.

The only criteria for 'Gallery' uploads, is that the file-size must be under 0.5 MegaBytes.



I suspect that if your photo was taken on a cellphone ...

... that the phones 'position sensor' has registered what you thought was a Portrait, as a Landscape.



Happens to me on mine fairly often, especially on close-ups.

I just rotate ones like that by 90-deg. using my FREE ! install 'PIXLR Express' app. ...

... and BINGO !  Bob's yer Uncle, no neck strain ! ;)



Darn fine lookin' 'boose you're makin' there Steven.

I didn't mind cranking the neck a few inches starboard, to have a good gander ! :shocked:

I'm with Woodie.  I kind of tend to look at things from an odd angle.

The caboose is looking very good.

I guess I get a little involved.

I email photos, either from my phone or my camera, to myself.

Then I open them in Gimp (an Open Source photo processing application for Linux), do any orientation adjustments (my phone almost always delivers stuff upside down), resize, save under a different name, and then go on from there.

I think there is a version of Gimp for Windows.   I find it does everything I need to do at least as well as PhotoShop, and it is Open Source, which means you don't pay anything for the license. 
I have been 90% Windows free for several years now.  There are still a couple of things for which I need Windows at work, and it is always irritating having to put with Windows when those occasions arise.

There is, it's my go-to image manipulator on Windows.

It can be downloaded at gimp.org
