I am building a layout here, I might seem that all I do is build Steam Engines but, their is a modest model railroad being built too.
Here is part one;

This is the current track plan;

For the last two years I have been focused on build two detailed models of 1870's Moguls that are currently hard at work in 1886. The Girls works hard but are well maintained. I am using the wagon top Moguls of the Virginia and Truckee RR as my prototype drawing heavily from Engine number 4 and 13. In build these two engines I have been relying on 3D drawing and printing on a backbone of conventional model making techniques.

Let the fun continue...

assembling the doors and windows wasn't as bad as I feared. It really is going together quickly. I just need to do the roof.

I need to repaint the chimney.

Youíve got some interesting projects going on. Yes, Iím enjoying seeing you making progress.

While I was Finishing my station I found myself asking; Where is this Agent going to live? Then I saw an ad one the bottom of this web page from Ebay featuring this kit;

That would be perfect. And. it was only $10! It came today. The instruction are well done. They give what you need to assemble the building but there's nothing on paint or weathering. The Wood siding is of Good quality. They provide a tar paper roof that I will replace with wood shingles. The windows and doors are Laser cut stock of some sort. Each has 3 pieces and are assembled with a peal and stick method. It does make the window easier to paint. No foundation is supplied. Here are the pieces painted;

When my computer crash I lost my slicer program so I have been new versions of slicer programs. I really like Citubox. It's easy to use, make copies and position the model.
Testing these slicer have given me the opportunity to improve the quality of my prints with the objective of being able to print Passenger car sides and architecture details.
Here's some of my prints. What works for the window mulleins doesn't work for the wall straightness but I'm getting closer.

I hope you enjoyed this.

Thank you for the photo, Bob. That will be nice scene.

The existing scene looks pretty good to my eyes. However, I am looking forward to seeing a pic of once your recently completed depot is set in place.

Bernd, Fusion made it easy. When I drew the domes I made sure their base fully extended into the boiler and then extruded a circle (the size of the boiler) through the base.

Mike, Here's a picture;

The station and a small residence building will go where the two story building is in the picture. This scene is out of normal reach so it will be the first area with full scenery since it has to be done before the foreground goes in.

Bernd Posted - 03/04/2021 : 11:19:18 AM
A quick note. I wasn't sure if it was you that did the 3D printing of a steam engine or not. I see you do have that compound curve for the steam and sand domes.

Thank you guys
Mike it's going next to the water tower/section house on the high line. It well serve as a flag stop. I'll take a picture later.

Michael Hohn Posted - 03/03/2021 : 7:40:14 PM
Wonderful model, Bob. Where are going to put it?
OK Hogger Posted - 03/03/2021 : 6:34:30 PM
That looks really super! 'Ya done good.

railman28 Posted - 03/03/2021 : 6:09:29 PM
Thank you guys. Here's are the finals;

George D Posted - 03/01/2021 : 09:55:39 AM
Your station is looking good, Bob.

Dutchman Posted - 03/01/2021 : 08:50:52 AM
That's a nice little station, Bob. I agree with your assessment of Bar Mills Kits.

Michael Hohn Posted - 03/01/2021 : 05:27:03 AM

Looks fantastic. Perfect choice on the roofing; it looks more northwestern.

railman28 Posted - 03/01/2021 : 12:22:59 AM
Thank you guys, The gears are starting to engage again. Here's a progress shot. It's time for some weather and add details;

I changed the slate tiles provided by Bar Mills with wood shingles from Wild West Models.
