Not to change a most interesting subject, on the question of this terminus I have in mind, I s aw this on eBay. What would it take to make it look less Continental and more British?
That used to appear at the back of the Hornby 1978 catalogue. It does have a British look to it but similar styles were found abroad. (The first of three pics you showed if you see the writing that you put. These buildings are not easy to get today. They are fairly rare as not many were sold due to them being pretty pricy due to their size and I believe that Hornby only sold them for two years. I seem to recall someone saying that Hornby didn't make them but just sold them. They are fantastic looking buildings if you can find one, and they do look like the style that many of our large town and city stations are. I remeber the buildings that I went in and the style matches that one except the ones I went in did not have a clock towet but some may have! The upper story windows and roof style and the first story windows and doors I often saw during my time on the railways.
