It may be surprising to maritime modelers that some of the grander ship models are made for the model railroad community. S.S. Lorrie Ann is a full sized ore hauler for an HO layout.

That's an awesome build in large 1/87. One advantage of the scale is the abundance of crew figures available for it!

Yep, large scale commercial vessels ARE awesome. Kudos to our friends in the model RR community!
