Tom!! You nailed it! They look really great, especially the tunnel approach/exit inside.
Very nice craftsmanship!

Thanks for the kind comments ...

The portals I refer to as Harold's will go on the outside track of the layout. Between the two I want to build a snow shed that you can look in through the side. Any good pictures out there?

Here are plans for an "N" scale shed, you could resize to your scale. And some pictures to see.

Louis, thank you for posting the sheds pictures. I'm just about to redo some of my Sn3 trackwork and there are two places where the rock comes very close to the track and where this kind of shed will help to make a great and interesting scene.

Thanks, Tom. I won't even have the room for the wooden rear, at least in one of the two locations. I think I will adapt the design of the third of Louis' pictures.

Thank you for the last pic, Louis. It looks like it should be a pleasant and not too difficult scratchbuild project. Besides it's quite unlikely that the kit as designed by Hunterline would exactly fit the room I have.

Apparently the vertical posts seem to be 12 x 12, Pat.
