Back To My Town Creations

A few of the other members of PNLTC have recently been creating widely-known chain stores for train shows. After seeing how much it added to the layouts, I was inspired to build this. My objectives were to build a store that 1: is widely known throughout North America, 2: has a distinctive look, and 3: is reasonably small. The first two requirements are fundamental to the purpose, and the third is because I didn't want to tackle a large building right now. This particular store fits all 3 perfectly. Although the sticker that I made for the sign completes the look, this is a store that any American will immediately recognize even if the façade has a plain white square in its place.
