I'm continuing the research for my new layout. The first area of focus is my old neighborhood in Bridgeport referred to as 'the hole'. I'm interested in modeling the businesses serviced in the '40s '50s '60s '70s.

After that, the lower yard, Seaview Ave with Carpenter Steel, North End from the Bridgeport Railroad Station. I'm looking for pictures of West End Lumber (now Rings End) and if possible with rail cars on the property.

I'm currently watching the YouTube videos of Rick Abramson's layout published by New Haven Rails who also has a great layout as well. Both of these cover the area that I am excited about. The area that I called home. Watching trains passing over the road when I was young was an amazing experience.

Having little background in the topic of the nhrr commercial customers in 'the hole', I appreciate any help anyone can provide.
