Looks interesting, Carl. We have an old C&O station near here that has been converted into a museum.

Great to have you all following along James, Michael, Guff, Bob S, Greg, Pete, Bernd, Philip, Jim O., Kevin, Bob H., Burley Jim. Mike S.,Ted, George, Jerry and Paul..

This is another new territory for me, since I don't remember if I've ever built a facility like this before...

There are plenty of depots/stations/offices out there, but I thought this one was "unique" .The different wood elements look like a major challenge.

Hi Carl. Really looking forward to this build.
Fancy you doing a Railroad Building, on a RR forum. Amazing.

I found this, which seems to be a very similar building.
But looks like it's been extended.

Thanks for following along Horton, Rob and Louis.

Fancy you doing a Railroad Building, on a RR forum. Amazing HAHA!

Rob, thanks for posting those pix. Yellow is not one of my favorite colors- but in the interest of prototype standards- I'll have to come up with something....

Hey Carl.

Thanks for letting me know you starting on this 1 bud. Been some time since ive done any modelling or model forum checking.

This is looking to be a great build. Keen to follow along and hopefully get some inspiration to start building again.

Looks like a great structure, Carl!

One thing I noticed - the two story section in your mock-up looks a lot more squat than the drawing. I'm sure you are aware of this - but just in case. I held a ruler up to my computer screen and the picture shows 26mm from the ground to the roof of the one story section and 50mm to the roof of the two story section. On the mock-up these measurements are 26mm and 42mm. Quite a difference which is why my eyes picked it up.

Good to know the approximate price comparison for custom made doors and windows. My whole peninsula area of Tellynott will be based on sketches such as the one you are working off. Many of the windows and doors I will be able to find fairly close in Tichy and Grandt line's catalog, but I'll have to get a few specialty items custom made.

Cheers, Mark.

By the looks of your photo this is going to be an interesting build. Certainly much different from what you would normally see. Good luck on this one, I'm sure that it will be great! I'll have to check in from time to time and see how you are progressing.

Mark- Appreciate you following along.

I checked on your concerns about height, and I think the photo is deceiving you a bit. The roof has a deep overhang, and the shadow is obscuring the top of the wall. The actual measurement to the top of the 2nd story is about 91 mm. Of course I will confirm my numbers again before starting the walls...

Larry- Good to hear from you and thanks for your comment.
Please stop by regularly and I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have....
