greetings to all...

Alan...the station is another masterpiece...as usual...

by the way...that "apparatus" with the cables and straight edge brings back memories...some good, some not so good...and that picture with the corner of the fluorescent lamp base/clamp brings back even more memories...spent many an hours hunched under one...but i digress...

nothing new right now on the workbench regarding trains...just something from the past...a "coarse scale" crossing shanty...all paper, cardboard and the usual lot of repurposed things...still need to make a proper crossing signal...

Howard...

Nice work Alan. I've also been working down at the station. I added figures and freight to my Lionel 157 station platform. I had extended the platform area when I rebuilt the yard last Spring. The benches were from a laser cut basswood kit. I had a terrible time getting the legs off of the sheet and broke all but one set. I made replacements from balsa.
I also discovered (well kinda knew already), that O scale does not mean the same thing to all mfr's. I bought figures from Woodland Scenic, RMT, and Bachman. The WS figures are much larger than the other two sets so I will save them for another project. The RMT seated figures are even too small for the benches so I placed them on the rear-facing benches.
Having the figures on the layout adds an element of life. I always enjoy seeing other's well thought out scenes.

I made these cones from a couple of plastic caps from driveway sealer bottles, I went with the old school colors.

The construction workers are cheap figures from China, and are also a different size from the other sets.

This is a view of the hill and tunnel at the Northwest corner of my 10’-by-5’ model railroad. The hill is made of extruded pink foam carved to shape – lightweight and removable – positively located but can just be lifted off the layout. The tunnel’s interior stone walls and portals are urethane castings. Ophir Depot built from a kit by Banta Modelworks. B. Lipnick Supply Company from a kit by Altoona Models. Bridgeport Tool & Die – with skylights - scratch-built based on a structure alongside the tracks of the former New Haven Railroad in Milford, Connecticut. Layout begun 2014 – completed 2019.

Nice station scenes, Bob! Unfortunately, filthy NYC hobos have have taken up residency on my subway platforms. Here’s one guy from this morning who clearly had a little too much to drink last night -

Making a little progress on the warehouse for Boston Fish Pier.  Trying my new gluing rig of a sheet of steel and welders magnets to keep everything square.  I am reusing some background flats from other modeler so I am repainting to Boston brick (flat red Krylon spraypaint).  I also cut out one of the doors to potentially detail the interior or add an animation like a fork truck.
