 This kit was already built before I decided to start detailing it( dont do this lol) and did require some dissasembly during the work

  Here are a few pics of the project to date 

I’m moving onto the 2nd floor construction next

Original Post

Wainscoting is wood panels or milled bead board installed on the walls from the floor to some height usually 3 to 4 feet up the wall with a horizontal chair rail type molding at the top and baseboard molding at floor level.   Looks from the photos like you found something depicting bead board ?

Really nice job, makes me want to take my Rico station out and do some remodeling in the future, of course mine too is 90% assembled, bummer...  Great colors for that structure

Thank you Gentlemen for the clarification

  I would call it panelling lol Good to know the correct terms   

  I have been using Evergreen Plastic sheeting and Plastruct for materials     

  The wainscoting is O scale 3 1/4” car siding as well as the roof soffits that I ripped to 1” strips on my mini table saw

  Stocked up on some more plastic supplies and glue today at the local train shop 


Thank you Joe!

   I have done some modifications to my modifications lol

  1st floor was flimsy due to the thin styrene sheet I used so I strengthened with some 1” x 1/4” strips laminated with the panel design to pose as a pony wall around the perimeter     

 I also painted the interior walls the same colour as the first floor module

  I decided to make it easy to pull the floors out to detail for sanity sake   

  Here are some pics

 I will be installing another room for a bath tub sink and water closet if I can find some detail parts

   The ground floor still requires a ticket office built as well

  Coach Joe - I will be indeed be detailing the freight shed side as well

  I just thought I would cut my teeth on the easy part first lol

  Here are a few pics
