This thread will follow the construction of the Crystal Palace on my Cosmopolitan Railway layout.

I recently bought 4 kits of a Heljan station canopy on the cheap second hand, with the idea to turn them into some sort of Crystal Palace (a building that I find very fascinating).

So construction work has recently begun on this building, which will occupy the corners in the layout. The building will be build as low relief around the corner. I might place mirrors behind it to make it seem larger, but I am not sure about that yet.

According to Genovevan history, the building was build for the 1873 Genovevan Industrial Exhibition in Danopol. The building soon got the nickname Crystal Palace after its London counterpart, a name the local government was keen on promoting, in the hope of drawing more tourist to Danopol

Looks an interesting bash. what is the story behind the railway?

I've been away for a long time, so if it is on another thread, just point me there.
