    Calico Mine Ride 'ticket' building replica - at-home project

    This was put together specifically for my father's backyard railroad display, work done by my uncle.

    Here is the real thing, inside Knott's.



    And the replica:





    Turned out pretty good. My dad has some references photos of Disneyland Paris Frontierland structures next potentially. Thanks for looking, just thought some folks here might appreciate this little project.

    I just saw a picture of that location taken Veterans Day, and the building isn't there anymore. Temporary removal, or gone for good? It has been redundent since the Farm went pay one price.

    That is just absolutely incredible. Very nice and well done.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Unfortunately the ticket booth has become the latest victim of Raffi. It was "an eyesore that has no use other than blocking the entrance to the ride".

    Fantastic replica! I'd gladly buy it if it was sold at the Park!
