Miscellaneous shots of Brandon Business District

Brandon is named for my nephew Brandon Kamm.

Most cities on model railroads have businesses and industries served by the railroad and little else.
In Brandon there is a downtown district (between Howell's Whiskey and Kneipp Klipboards,
which has no rail service. I believe this areahelp to give the feeling of the railroad being
"beyond the basement". A drug store (below, yellow storefront), a Pool Hall (below, brown storefront),
a post office (below, grey storefront) and even an empty building (below, green storefront).

The main street (and one of the few streets) in Brandon is
busy with shoppers as a train passes by.

A couple appears to have just left the post office.

Looking from Cook's Scrap, it appears someone is
either leaving or arriving in Brandon.

It looks like Brandon may be in the Cafe having lunch.

It appears the bank & Trust Company is very busy.

Many thanks to Ken Ellison for the photos from this session.
