Think I got it right now!

Last night I had to finish up on a build I had started before Summer kicked in, but now need the room on the work bench for the Munsters house I am building and reworking.

This litter Bugger is XC cabin which was on the NYCs 8 mile or so long lake Mahopac / Goldens bridge branch where it cross there Putnam division.

As you can see I gave it few shots at getting it right and I think I am there now, and seing as I only had two photos to build from and one person to talk to who had seen it in person I think it's got the right feel, no?

Great job! Always need small buildings on a railroad.

Thanks gang!

Cole a agree with you 100% as the small buildings to me are a important detain all on there own!

I did misprint something though, as I had 3 photos I used to build XC cabin from which I did not post up.
The unposted third shoot was a view of the other window side of the cabin where the downspout is.

Thanks folks!
Cole I could not agree more that it's the small buildings that add a lot of detail to the overall area of our RRs also!

They give a greater sense of size/ scale to the trains and other larger structures.

Where on the branch was this located?

In my younger days, I worked passenger and freight on the Harlem line.
When Conrail was still around, we'd switch "84 Lumber" right at Golden's Bridge...

JA, I gather is was on the “Putt” division, up north somewhere...


That’s cool! I worked for a railroad that had a similar building at a junction called “DM”. It was a connection between the Erie Buffalo and Southwestern branch and the Erie Dunkirk branch.


It was a switch tender’s shack. I often thought of building a full size replica of it and using as a garden shed. The original shack was burned years ago, but a friend of mine has the station sign off of it...
