Hi

Thats a nice bit of modeling your doing there.

I'm glad to see you have added a toilet block, your waiting room hopefuly should not smell like our local station waiting room. Ha ha!

Nice work

I like the moderness of it al.

Cheers Alan

I know what you are saying i think some people get confused to what a waiting room is used for :lol:

To be honest 90% of this station work was carried out by West Coast Miniatures :oops: (link below)

http://westcoastminiatures.webs.com/

All i am doing is adding posters waiting/station room interiores,signage ect...but i am very pleased with the outcome 8)

Thanks to you all for your comments i will add some photos of the main completed station soon :wink:

many thanks

Most of you will be fimilar with my garden railway (Heatherburn) and Potters lane that are posted on here. I also make model buildings to order and im currently working on some more for Darrens NSE layout. I have already finished two small waiting rooms and im now working on the platform three building. Here's a sneeky preview of Daz,s new buildings..

First the two waiting rooms...

Image

Next here is the platform three building under construction. First the foamex shell...

Image

Part of the roof has been cut and glazed to allow light through..

Image

The shell was then sprayed grey....

Image

The front wall is made from clear acrylic sheet. Once the doors are cut out they are covered with signwriters vinyl NSE red naturaly !

Image
Image
These doors will be for the toilets...
Image
The door for the parcels office is also done the same way..
Image
Image
At the end of the parcels office is a roller shutter door...
Image
Here's a few pics of the building so far with the brickwork now added and the NSE livery applied..
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Attention will now turn to the waiting room at the other end of the building. I will post some more pics when the building is complete. :wink:

I see a few fellow modellers here are using this FOAMEX stuff for buildings etc. And this has got me to thinking of my buildings for Knaresborough and especially the viaduct. So a few silly questions first.

1, Where do you get this foamex from?
2, What size shets does it come in?
3, What do you use for bonding it together?
4, The big question is cost?

But by the look of what can be done with it it seems my best option. Just one other small question can you get different thicknesses of it.

But Daz the buildings you are making look great and I just hope that my attempts look as good.

Thanks

Glenn.
