And putting in a dead end station.
And this is what will go in instead.
The back scenery will be changed.
From the other side.
Got to go,,,, work to do you know :thumb:
Ooh, that's a nice looking building Chris! Can you tell us more about it?
Hi Val , re that building,, Can you believe, I picked it up for $10 at a junk stand!!!!!!!. At last years Christmas show.
It was yellow and yuck looking
I gave it the Chris Walker look, and a paint job
And wwwwwoooooooo .
A Neat looking station.:thumb:
What A Neat Station!
That looks great! Is the rail line on the right going to continue as an expansion?
I will try for that impression Steve.
But after years of having continuos ruinning I am enjoying the end to end , makes me stop more and see the big photograph possibilitys
Chris, could this be the POLA kit of the Rico station? (Rico station on the RGS it is for sure.)
If yes, then you made a little (??? ) gem out of it, because the original kit is molded in a garish ochre yellow with a dark blue roof (yuck!)
And if no, then it's still great how you painted and weathered it! :thumb:
Hi Ron,, Underneath the station the name is QUICK.
made in west Germany.
The colour you describe matched it perfectly, it was sad
Here is a closer look at the little Darling
QUICK was for some time the German by-name of the (I think Danish) firm POLA. So in Germany the kits were sold under the brand QUICK. But now POLA belongs to FALLER, another famous German model manufacturer. Not only the railroads have fallen flags - mergers are just as common in the modeling business!
I checked the home page of FALLER, and it seems that they dropped the HO and N scale line. This is somewhat a pity, because POLA had quite a lot of interesting American prototype structures (i.e. the famous Chama coaling tower).
I also have the Rico station kit and I will place it on my layout. Picture will follow as soon as I have built and installed it.
