    Nice modification and an unusual project. You don't see many funeral homes on layouts.
    Cheers,

    Nice project and I have actually seen a real 58 Plymouth hearse. But you'll need to add to the fleet of hearses if you ever want to grow the business and be able to offer group rates to your clients.

    they rent the upper rooms for more income to keep the rates down. The idea was to build it like the funeral home in the local town near me. The funeral home had apartments above and the polar was below and they had only one hearse. but that's a good idea though, but I don't think the Coal Yard will sell any of their land next to it.

    I knew a guy in the early 70's who lived above a funeral home. The rent was cheap and the place quiet. The owner of the home wanted someone to keep an eye on the place. Well, my friend last several months after hearing noises down stairs, doors opening and closing and a variety of other super natural happenings.

    He never returned.

    Would that dog food be chuck roast or grade A sirloin dog food.

    Nice to see something outside the normal on the layout. Good job.
