Francis J. Leavy & Sons Coal Co.
Built with Evergreen styrene, Plastruct roofing, PVC Tubing and Grandt Line windows and doors. The Decals were made with CorelDraw and printed on an Alps MD1000 printer. The signs were printed on photo paper with a HP inkjet. The coal conveyor is scratch built with Grandt Line wheels and the billboard was a scan of an ink blotter and edited in Coral PhotoPaint. The coal truck is a custom painted Ertl 1/43 1937 Ford semi tractor fitted with a Berkshire Valley dump body.

The late Frank Leavy is the father of my close friends Mike Leavy and his brothers Glenn and Art. Frank must have been one of the last domestic coal customers as heated their family home with coal until 1967.

I built the model for use on a Flower City Tinplate Trackers module.

like how you finished off the top to reflect the period you are modeling.

Richard, a client sent me a picture of your coal silo and wants one built like it. I do not like to just copy someone else work. Can you send me any original photos etc that I can use to build my version of it. it is a great looking piece.
