There seems to be absolutely ZERO anything information-wise about the building or its operations except the simple knowledge that it did exist. Short of going to the Library of Congress, does anyone have photos or any relevant information for modeling? I'm hoping to start an N scale layout featuring the key buildings at Locus Summit,and I'd love to include this building in the foreground...

Do you have access to the Flags Diamonds & Statues issue on Locust Summit from way back? I don't remember everything in it, however if modeling that it is definitely worth reviewing

I’ll have to go through my archives, I’ve got a bunch of issues but not catalogued yet. Good chance I don’t even have that one either but I’ll go hunting for it if I can find what issue itnis

The cover had a lot of black on it, and I believe a picture of one of the electric steeple cabs they had there. It does go pretty far back. My main stash is stored, but I will see if I can grab it next time I get to the "warehouse."

I have that one, but the only “picture” is of a birds eye view of the entire complex. The drawn version is there too which is almost of equal quality

Got the issue today after a looong impatient wait. The photos show a much smaller building than I expected, so I assume that the building was either updated later or not built at all at that time. No help there, BUT the photos in that issue are absolutely breathtaking, and will be a huge help regardless. Still need to figure out how Jim hertzog found a way to build a reasonable mock up of it...
