The building looks great, Tom, but I think that the tilt on the smokejacks detracts from the overall appearance.

I'd suggest either cutting off the base at a suitable angle or removing them and inserting an appropriate wedge on the lower side, so that they're truly vertical.

I noticed them after I sealed the weathering. When they were attached they were straight so I am not sure what happened. I plan to fiddle with some to see what caused the tilt and what I can do about it.

You might try using a sheet of roadbed material that is big enough to hold up the engine shed as well.

In model railroading, there are between six and two hundred ways of performing a given task.
Most modellers can get two of them to work.

I think I got the smokestacks straightened out (pun intended). The way they are designed if you are not careful they will slide and tilt as the glue is drying. I roughed up the bottoms with a file and held them against a level until the glue held them in place.

That is what I was thinking.
