Wow Its almost been a month since I post anything on this thread.
I have done a little more work this week. I needed to build a store room and a wooden walk way. Sorry I don't have more pic's of the storeroom. But it is built just like the main building and I used the same flooring from the store on the floor and walls.

When I did the wooden walkway I went back to the resin casting I used in the in the small depot. I cut the casting to fit the edge of the building...
I then used the reinforcing casting underneath to tie all the the shape together. I used balsa wood along the back because it not visible. The reinforcing casting has the wood grain on it to match the top..

I started working around the turntable. I had to cut a new piece of 3/4" ply to widen the area around it. So that was cut and glued in place with gorilla glue. I then added the rounded fascia to the curved section.

Well I have been looking into the type engine house I wanted to build. I have had several sets of plans and just could not decide. One day I was looking across the internet and found Anvil Mountain Models. They have several laser cut kits. They had an Engine house on one of their website that I thought was pretty interesting. So I contacted Lowell and asked him if he ever laser cut his kits in a larger size. He said that he had a guy that he had cut several kits in the 1:20.3 scale. I asked him about the engine house and he said he could. So I ordered it. I had the kit in about 2 weeks.

Here is what it looked like clamped together..
