Some of you guys are on the right track for sure.  ha ha.  Pun intended.   ;)





It really isn't spooky...just old and forgotten...but making a come-back.   ;)

I'm sticking with my guess of a trolley/street car. (
Depending on where you live as to what they were called)

Why, Rose Lake Park, of course! :)  Maybe Rose Lake Park is one of those early 20th century parks where people took a train/trolley to get there?

Something wonderful is happening.  Come join me and a few friends (Wagi, JPAlmighT, Bullethead, WolfTenor, citytrader, and BeyondDrewTV) on a journey through the years as we chronicle the life of a traditional amusement park called Rose Lake Park from its beginnings as a trolley park before the turn of the century up through today.

Citytrader will be helping reconstruct the 1890's from personal memory...

There are more details in the trolley station than I realized when I had the park map...  I like that you did the underside of the roof on the station (something I tend to forget or ignore)... and I like the clever light post embedded in the cable pole. 

This is certain to become the next biggest thing since Kaleidoscope Piers and I'm beyond thrilled to be a part of it.

So happy I lied about my age on the application, Wagi would've had a heyday :P

OOOO! This is going to be exciting and fun. You all have different styles so the mix here will be fantastic.
And I can't help but giggle at the thought of what kind of cray-cray will be unleashed when you let my buddy Bullethead loose and unsupervised on this park. :)

I'd jump in for a swim, but for some reason I just don't seem to trust those swans... they seem... I don't know... judgemental...

Yes, the bridge is totaly great and I see forward to the building in the back. The landscaping in that picture is so beautiful, espacially the hill side in the back.
This project seems to become special. It´s such a nice thing to see a Community project from all thoose inspiring Creators.
I will really enjoy to follow the development of Rose Lake Park here on the boards of shyguysworld and not over YouTube&Co...it reminds me a little bit of the old times...

Until now everything looks fantastic, realistic and with the details on the right spots. The foliage looks very nice as well and generates a mystic vibe along the railtrack.
Hopefully we get some more pictures soon!

Mabel over at the Plancovania Historical Society just contacted me about an old photo she found that she thinks might relate to our little project.

If it weren't for the recognizable PC clouds I would've thought that was a real vintage postcard/photo.

Well, I'm totally supervised, restrained, and heavily medicated.  As such, ironically enough, I'm merely the voice of reason, a technical adviser.  Occasionally they let me build a small detail to hide in a corner somewhere, so long as it doesn't detract from the masterworks all around it.

Seriously, I feel like somebody who got called up from the C league to play in the majors.

Oh please!   :sleeping:

Without Bullethead's superior knowledge and help supervising and keeping us in line you'd think this park was powered completely by extra-large rubber bands, and the drinking water came from an open well located downhill from the outhouses...   :confused:

The current part of the series is rather primitive and doesn't yet take advantage of his other superior skills - heck any idiot can place hundreds of trees around the park...which seems to be the job they gave me, come to think of it...    :mellow:
