Super diorama Ian. Very Happy

As, for most of the time, absolutely nothing happens on the FCPyF it could be rebuilt in this format and the freight car swapped when nobody's looking, especially as most freights run overnight.

Me too! I particularly like the look and proportions of the old depot.

Question is, did the cake taste good? Laughing

Thanks Gents

I little bit of how I built the depot. I needed a small one as the whole thing is only 8 inch square. The depot is a PeterPig 15mm Resin 30. Station (Western/ACW). Which looked about right but need a little work. I guess you could also do it in other scales.

which when it came was a little under scale more 3mm than 3.5mm. Also been a resin cast it was a little off centre. The idea I came up was it had 3 phase building 1st the small Freight/LCL lock-up 2nd phase passenger depot, with loading bank added to Freight Shed 3rd bay window lookout on main side of depot. Basically I smoothed the walls off & made a cut in roof line between freight shed & passenger depot.
