Brian’s been back in touch with his model railroad dock.
But first, here’s an update from Henry:
Some photos of my double deck layout.
It is in a single car garage, and a drop down bridge spanning the garage door connects the lower levels.
Two removable sections connects the lower and upper levels, forming a folded figure 8 for continuoes running.
The harbor section operates as a branchline.
There is a 4 track hidden staging yard behind the rock face and mirrors against the ceiling provides visuals to stop trains at clearance markers.
The layout has a fully operational signal system with automatic block signals and dispatcher controlled home and starter signals.
A big thanks to Henry, you can see his last post, on his HO platform here.
And now onto Brian, with a correction, which was entirely my fault for the way I linked to his last post:
I would like to clear up a mistake in the last published post.
The photo of the “HO scale Dock” diorama, is not my model, it was borrowed from an unknown source.
I used that photo as a source for four (4) of my scratch built models.
Below are photos of my scratch built buildings of the Tidewater models.
Below, the Boat Repair Dock,
Below, the lighthouse mostly scratch built.
Below, the three scratch built buildings, L-t-r, the Boat repair dock (converted), the Sailmaker and the Restaurant in the background.
Below, same as above.

Below, modified reversed, back to front Boat Repair Dock.
I hope this clears up some confusion as to the diorama not being mine.

Thanks to Brian. Here’s his boat repair dock post where I started the confusion.
It’s an impressive model railroad dock.
