I'm really loving all this detail! The floor and roof are great!!! The B&W Pictures look real, if they were taken outdoors, i but they would pass for real!

Thanks!

I have made the smoke stacks and the above roof beams with the stay rods.
I have also started the construction of the roundhouse doors.
They are very intricate in their design, as they are made up entirely of scale dimensional lumber....
1" x 3" for the diagonal planking, and 1" x 8" for the framing.
I make full height doors like the original had when built, as I want to be able to have taller locos inside the roundhouse.

I've trimmed the doors to fit the openings.
The plastic hinges are being drilled for the hinge rod.
A bit tricky to install the hinges to the doors and still get a perfect fit....

I have mounted the hinges on half of the doors.

Graffen are you going to put in the posts between the doors that stopped them from swinging foul of the next track and was used to hook them to stop them swinging closed in the wind?

I might just install those when I have installed the door opening linkages.

Finished!

A couple of years down the way, the grounds keeper will get tired of pulling the weeds, ??... and they will start to overgrow the unused spaces. . . . like under that rusty old boiler?.... Wink :o Wink

You should enter this in a modeling contest somewhere! I guess you can't go for Model Railroader, since they like unpublished material, but I would look around and find somewhere to publish it.
