On Saturday Don Janes and I participated in the HOMES layout tour. One of the stops was at the Mt. Albert Scale Lumber Co. We did not know what to expect but it was well worth the visit. Entering the shop which is now in Stoney Creek, Ont. a nice display of finished O scale kit offerings are on display. We are greeted as we enter by one of the staff who gives us a quick speech on the kits and the scale lumber warehouse just through the first door. A tour of the wood working shop was about to begin so on through the next set of doors to the shop.
