For quite some time, I've been trying to come up some some ideas fro a railroad station "in town" for the North Coast Railroad. I'd been thinking of something with a tower of some sort, but always had a fondness for the FSM kit #235 Small Town Station.
I stumbled across a few photos of old Scale Model Miniatures (SMM) kits specifically, the Rubbles Station and Stone Station, thinking "Damn, I wish I could Kit mingle those two under one roof!"

The SMM kits are now marketed by DR Ben's Scale Consortium (www.debenllc.com) I've been playing Email tag with the owner, Rich Bendever about the idea.
Through Rich, I discovered the roof angles of both structures are the same, and both kits share the same roof trusses as well. NICE!

So, along with a few spare parts to add a few features not part of the standard kits, we struck a deal tonight. and my kits are on the way. CANT WAIT !

So this will be my construction thread for the combination station featuring both kits under one copper ribbed roof.

Wish me luck!

Glad you bumped this up. Now I can follow the build.

While I was looking through the posts and idea for build a station came to me. Have to suppress it for now or it'll turn into another started but never finished projects. Have enough of them now.

Your station looks beautiful in the context of your layout.

David J Buchholz Posted - 12/23/2018 : 09:20:48 AM
I had the Rubbles Depot out the other day. It has been languishing in a cabinet while other bench and trackwork progresses. It gave me the opportunity to take a quick pic for posting. The roof will be extended to the left to cover the entire platform and n additional round window added over the freight building.

The structure will be located to the lower right of the town buildings where the track cuts across the base of the town

Actually finished the "main" bench work for the layout. Reversing loop under the steps on hold till the new furnace is installed. So the station is just on the back burner until later in construction.

Hi David:

Very well done.

David J Buchholz Posted - 03/30/2018 : 4:56:19 PM
Ok, it's been a while since I moved forward on this project. Fear not. It has not been forgotten. It has simply been set aside while progress is being made on the layout as a whole. Ill come back to it again soon

Not an easy solution, David, but a good one. Nice neat soldering.


The neatness comes from using extremely thin solder made for printed circuit boards, not at all what you'll find at Home Depot. Likely that I bought it twenty years ago at Radio Shack or an electronics supply house.

This is modeling at it's finest. What a joy to follow.
David J Buchholz Posted - 11/22/2017 : 09:40:54 AM
Ok so I lied about getting back to this in October. It is Thanksgiving and I have actually looked into the layout room again. Considering the nature of the dormers on the roof.

gotta love the "long-roofs"
David J Buchholz Posted - 09/16/2017 : 1:48:39 PM
About Oct 1 I will get back to this project. For me, model railroading is not a summer sport.

Hi David, What car are you "tinkering " with ??

Cheers Tom

Haven't posed in a while because Model railroading is a cold weather hobby or me. now that it is spring, headed to Summer it's time to swear at automobile issues and repairs for the next several months.

To be continued next fall.
