Model House, 1994, fifth grade

10 x 14.25 x 7.25 inches

 

I spent the whole third grade school year working on my model railroad, and by summer break I felt discouraged because my trains were not working out as I had intended.  After building eight trains that year I felt like I could make no more progress and yet the trains left much to be desired.  That summer I shifted my attention to more fertile ground, the city where the trains would run rather than the trains themselves.  I soon decided I didnít need trains at all and spent the next three years making model buildings for a town.  The house pictured above, photographed February 6 1994, is unfortunately the only building from my town that still exists.

 

This photo shows the train station and two smaller buildings along the railroad track in my model town, November 1993.
