Your ironworks structure looks great! Nice job of weathering too. I'm a bit jealous of your large space! California homes don't have basements. Of course, you need the room for your larger scale trains. My wife and I went to see a beautiful O-gage three rail layout in downtown San Diego's "Old Town" district yesterday. Sadly, it's very likely to be torn down in a week, since they can't find a full time operator for the layout and store. The attendant said 80% of the track, structures, etc. has already been sold off.
I'm glad I got to see it, but sad that I won't be able to show it to my four-year-old grandson, who's already nuts about trains. The layout will be gone before his Christmas time visit.

Thank you traction fan! I appreciate the kind words. Too bad about that layout being torn down.

That's too bad, I saw it two years ago and it was just fantastic.

The next building is the Sub Station in Mineola where the Oyster Bay branch comes off the main.

A few more pictures of the sub station. I gave this the same treatment with tinted joint compound for the mortar joints, and a couple of coats of black wash for weathering. I will add some details and lighting inside in the future.
