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.
Finished the display case and stand for my 1953 Pawling station model. The station is now on display in the 2nd Pawling station after the one I modeled burnt down in 1984. The stand was fairly easy to construct the plexiglass display cover was a pain. If I bought one the price would have been $200.00. I saved about $130.00 building it myself. It's not easy material to work with but it's done.
Cole I'm more worried about the 5 & 6 year old's grabbing the figures even though their glued down. When my friends bring their small children to view my layout their into everything. They would be picking up the model auto's for sure.
J the station burn down 11/30/84 but it stopped being a station long before that. Around 1970 it was sold to the Lumelite Plastic Corporation for product storage and a new smaller station was built. This is where the my station model is being displayed now but even that is no longer a station. The old station was the largest on the upper Harlem Division because it was the half way point between North Adams, Mass. where the trains originated and Grand Central Station. Most trains had a 20 minute steam engine water stop there which gave passenger's a chance to get a bite to eat at the station diner. The people who waved at you were my neighbor's parents. They lived in that house.
