The week we will move southward from Pinecrest to North Park. These two towns interweave.


The first industry we will look at is DeVillbiss Rail Service (above).
This industry is located in the middle of the north end of North Part
There is a main shop complex (above, left) and a storage building (above, right).
This industry is named for Sue Line Crew member Charlie DeVillbiss.
The LED lighting has been done by Sue Line Crew members
Dillon Stokes and David Colvin.


Once again, the map is designed and drawn by Sue Line Crew member Charlie DeVillbiss.

Last week we saw Dixon Clean-Out,
Crews Recycled Auto Parts (C.R.A.P.) and
Sherwin Williams Paint.


One of the unique features of North Park is that
most of the town is actually just east to the area modeled-
it is on the backdrop!
Here we see several buildings with are flats (above) that are against the backdrop, but
add a great deal of depth to the scene.
This work was done by Sue Line Crew member David Colvin.



The next industry we see the I.C. Sparks building (above).
The sign and the "welder" have been added by Sue Line Crew member David Colvin.
This industry is not served by the Sue Line railroad.


Again we see the flats adding depth to the scene (above).

Moving to the south, on the north end of the east side of North Park,
we next see Garland Gun Works (above).
This industry is still under construction.
It is named for Sue Line Crew member Danny Garland
who is a retired probation officer.

Next we see the Mason- Arizona Chemical Works (above).
It is located in the middle of the north end of North Park, south of DeVillbiss Rail Service.
This industry is named for the late model railroader-
Bob Mason of Dallas, Texas.
It was a gift from the late modeler, also from Dallas, Texas,
Cliff Robinson.


To the east of Mason- Arizona Chemical Is Busey Technology (above).
The industry is named for Sue Line Crew member Jason Busey who is a medical technology specialist.


Adain we see the extra depth added to a scene
with the addition of flats on the backdrop (above).




Here we see another effect-
All of these buildings (above) in North Park are on the photo backdrop.


As we continue south, we see a combination of photo backdrop and flats (above).


The flat (above, blue building) IS served by the railroad.
It is Bob's Meat Balls and is named for associate Sue Line Crew member Bob Wilson
who produces gourmet meatballs and is a restaurant owner in South Carolina



Continuing with the backdrop, flat and now 3 dimensional structures is Brangham Industries (above).
Note that the warehouse is No. 9 to give the feeling of a larger industry and
the water tower is marked for North Park (NPK).
This industry is named for Sue Line Crew member Lionel Brangham.


To add to the scene, LED's have been added to the photo backdrop (above).
This work was done by Sue Line Crew member Craig Pearson.



Just west of Brangham Industries on the south end of the spur is the
Marshall and East Texas (M&ET) Freight Transfer office (above).


Slightly west of Marshall and East Texas Freight Transfer is
Robinson Storage (above).
This industry is also a gift from the late modeler
Cliff Robinson of Dallas, Texas.




At the southern end of North Park is G & P Grain.
This industry is named for my parents who were known as
Granny and Pap- therefore the G & P.


Again we see an industry on the photo backdrop (above).


The south end of North Park is marked by a clump of trees (above).

There is one more effect in North Park.
It is the industry of Kicksum Glass.
There is no physical structure on the layout, merely
a spur for the industry.


An overview of North Park looking to the south east.
Notice that there is a man who is "out standing in his field" and
a local switcher (above).
