Here is a photo of the Jefferson Barracks station circa 1940's.

I decided to go with a more rustic Army camp station with adobe walls and a center second story wood control tower to blend into my Western Texas desert scenes.  My "Camp Crockett" WW11 Army camp is in final stages of construction.

I'm also looking forward to seeing this when it's done.

Well, some very beautiful, nicely detailed scenes! 

 

But don't forget the old-school charm of the Plasticiville Union Station (this is my original from the early 1960s, missing the side platforms that were discarded before modern glues were available -- wish I'd saved them).  This photo is many years old now; some minor changes and other details were added, but the look is the same.  Not hi-rail!

 

 

Take care, Joe.

OK this is getting spooky. First I copy your yard/engine service area. Then I copy your station without knowing it. Crescent Locomotive works did one for me too; brick with green trim.

 

I'll try to get a few pics of mine tonight...

There are some amazing stations in this thread. Congratulations, especially to those who scratchbuilt stations or integrated them so completely into their scenery.

 

Here's an old Lionel 121 tinplate station that I finished a couple of weeks ago. It's sort of restored, but in non-original colors. I did the walls in texture paint to simulate stucco or rough brick. My layout consists of a loop of Standard Gauge track around an 0 gauge layout, so any Standard Gauge buildings and accessories must go in the corners. As you can see, the layout is still a work in progress and I need to put in a parking lot, a backdrop, and some other things around the station.

Here's a closer look at it, before I moved it into the corner.

All you guys have some really nice station. My station was a after thought when I was building the table. Since I made a small town, that's how I put the station together. I just recently added another platform that I lit with two LED.

From all the submitted station photos I like this most for several reasons...

there is a lot of action, all platforms are populated with figures...

plenty of tinplate structures next to multiple parallel tracks...

real vintage ambient, impressive
