Hi fellow modelers,

As some of you know, I am modeling the DL&W in the Port Morris,NJ area in the 1952-53 era in HO. For years, fellow lister Mike DelVecchio used to call my pike the Delaware, Lackawanna and Lumber since it had no scenery:) I have finally started the scenery using Styrofoam sheets laminated together to form the contours. In order to work on the landscape contours at Lake Hopatcong, I needed to mock-up some scale models of the station building, the pedestrian walkway, elevator towers and Landing Road overbridge.

Thanks to Paul Tupaczewski's help with some current-day photos and actual dimension of the station building and Landing Road bridge, I was able to do some VERY rough mock-ups using scraps of the Styrofoam and scaling from various photos in the Morning Sun books and photos purchased from Bob Pennisi.

If anyone out there has actual drawings of any of the Hopatcong buildings or structures, I would appreciate hearing from you off-line. Any constructive comments on the mock-ups are also appreciated!
