Scratch built RR station

I'm scratch building the RR station in Pawling, NY, my hometown. It's a none functional station that will sit on top of my helix. I'm not even sure what scale it is. S, O or in between?

Great looking station. I do not have the patience to kitbash something that big.
Love your HorseShoe Diner. When I saw your title I thought it better have a bay window
on the track side. It does, good job.

Your right Mopac lots of patience. This is a photo of the station diner back in the day when there were only oil lamps.

I did not know it was based on a real station. Very cool.

I had 2 choices - to buy a S scale box car and cut it in half or make one. Looking at the S scale box car prices I decided on the latter. It turned out better then I thought.
