    Thanks for posting Bob! I'm pretty sure I'll be getting some of these books.

    I would advise anyone modeling this era check out the American & Canadian houses built by tlanders.

    The Brick-House and Wartime-House sets are very useful.

    I also like the Frame-House set, but that's more of a 1960s thing.

    Are any of you guys interurban/electric traction enthusiasts? I know that's more of a pre-war thing, but there were some hold-outs into the 1950s and 1960s.

    I drove in a lot of freight trains in that era. The one thing I noticed was that you saw the worst part of the town or city.Lots of old buildings ,scrap, and derelict vehicles
