Made a start yesterday on the depot at Tallahatchie, adapted from parts of a kit of unknown origin.

I've had to add a skirting board and some extra at the top of the walls to make the building large enough for 1/55th scale. The card roof is to check the height of the eaves and whether the overhang clears passing rail vehicles; the final finish will either be tar-paper or shingles. I'll need to add some framing around the doors and windows as they are a little too small.

Edit: Managed to get a bit more modelling time in the late afternoon, increasing the height of the freight house doorways, and adding door and window frames to the front of the building. This has improved the look quite a bit and will give me a chance to pick the mouldings out in a darker colour; present thinking is buff walls and brown mouldings.
