1953 scratch built Pawling RR station update

Now that the golf season is over for me I did some work on my scratch built 1953 Pawling RR Station. This post I've added some waiting passengers. The project is almost complete. My next post will have photos of the full interior - waiting room, restroom, station master office, railroad REA office, diner, diner kitchen, upstairs apartment and Agway all furnished.

Thanks mopac. Pawling had the largest station on the New York Central upper Harlem, NY division because it was the half way point between New York City and North Adams, MA where the trains originated.

Fabulous job on the station, George. Is it HO scale?

Thanks Joe & tj. Although my layout is HO scale the station is O scale. I originally was going to display it on top of my helix but now because I also did the station's interior I've decided not to. It's going to be a separate display in my train room.

I don't know, George. The scale is much too big for your HO setup. I think you should give the station away to a new, happy, willing home. It just so happens ... I have a little O layout!



Until then, ENJOY. Very nice work!

TJ

Thanks Magic it came out well. Back to my HO layout now until golf season rolls around again.
