Do the Challenge rules allow such pettifoggery?  My bank balance is putting me at an unmanageable disadvantage. Wallbang Misngth

Here is the lower roof.  The top edge is the overhang for the front of the building.

Okay, I see how it's coming together now, although that Halloween tail-end observation car is causing me some confusion. 
At first, I thought it to be a full-length car, but the angle of the photo almost makes it look like a more modern large-scale version of Walthers' "Piker", an HO scale single-trucked heavyweight observation car.

A snazzy-looking paint job for sure, though! Thumbsup Thumbsup

Wayne:  It's a G Scale Eggliner:

No - I didn't pay that much for it   Smile   Smile

They are made for large scale railroads with tight curves.  They run great on my 96" diameter (4' Radius) curves Smile

Thanks everyone for the kind remarks  Goldth

The Eggliner is 2 observation car ends mounted on a truck from a GPx. My wife has 2 of them.
