With its shorter days and days off, this time of the year tempts the modelmaker to start new projects. I try to resist temptation by beginning the new year with fewer unfinished projects on my desk.

One that has gone unfinished for too long is my model of a Central of Vermont boxcar, actually a modified BTS laser kit of a PRR 28' boxcar. Today it went through the paint shop.



Next step: Art Griffin decals.

The book I have has plans for the Wallace NY station. Same type. Apparently the Wallace station drawings were done for the book and had not been published elsewhere.

Thanks Michael. I'm going to have to dig through my magazines. I'm sure it's buried somewhere, just haven't looked yet. If I can't find it I'll let you know. Thanks.

Bernd,

I used plans in a Kalmbach book published several decades ago, now out of print. I assume the plans are a reprint. I'll track down the book and look for clues where you could find them, or else I will get a set to you somehow.

Nice job on that depot Michael.

Oh, BTW, thanks for the close up of the station.

My recollection, and the photo here confirms, that the padoga part of the roof was done in metal. https://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek/27956025569/in/photostream/

How did you accomplish the curve in the roof?


Carl,

Thank you. The roof is built up with rafters, etc. like the prototype. I built a jig to glue up multiple pieces of stripwood at different angles for each rafter, then sanded them to shape. I think I used overlapping pieces of stripwood, six or so in all. I made about twenty of them.

It was about 25 years ago.

Thanks, Frank. However, the depot is mine but the covered bridge is the fine work of Bill Gill. He described its construction in the October RMC, if memory serves me correctly.

Nice station and covered bridge Mike.
Michael Hohn Posted - 12/11/2019 : 08:10:42 AM
Here are a couple shots of my depot. When I built it I had no clear photo of the roof. There appeared to be two different types and I knew shingles made no sense on the overhangs so I did metal. Photos Iíve seen subsequently confirmed my choice.





I was building it for a contest and therefore did an interior; the furniture is elsewhere. This was one of the structures I did for my MMR.

Michael,

Ah yes Scott Lawrence. I've been to his site a few times. Nice link and great pictures. I can see where that roof line might cause some problems in the winter with snow melt and then freezing again. I'm sure that took a toll on the roof.

Bernd
Michael Hohn Posted - 12/10/2019 : 10:27:09 PM
Bernd, this site has many photos of these depots, both as built originally and in later years: https://scotlawrence.github.io/pagoda/index.html
Knowing what weather is like in upstate NY, I imagine the almost horizontal roof portions became a maintenance nightmare. Iíve seen photos where a flat roof inclined at a small angle was built over the curved portions. I think the roofs were truncated as you mentioned.

Dave, that sounds like a good plan. Without the pagoda roof the station has a generic old-time look.

James, I think my approach will be a little different but not much. I think changing routes will be a two stage procedure of throwing the points and flipping the toggle. Where the turnout is located I canít do anything under the layout.

Mike

Mike, the wye I've got planned for the last phase of my B&M Eastern Route will have automatic polarity switching for both DC and DCC: My push-pull rod mechanisms use slide switches to latch and switch frog polarity. It's easy to substitute a 3PDT slide switch for the normal SPDT. I'll use the extra poles to connect the tail track to the proper side of the wye.
