Cut it off at the top of the platform and "pour" a ground level concrete pad for it to sit on. Changes the appearance considerably. You can find a modern attached covered platform and do the same thing. Put one on each end of the station for a larger appearing structure.
Don't forget portable steps so passengers can get on and off of the cars.
Also you can cover all of the exterior walls with brick paper for a very nice and unique look.
I'm working on that very thing right now. I should have the base platforms for one station and two passenger shelters shortly. Let me know if you are interested.
BTW, the Plasticville Collectors Association just had a sale on a whole batch of stuff from a storage locker. Really great prices. I got most of a small town for just under a hundred bucks. Lots of bashing material there.
Now, if I only had a place to put it all.
