Bob, this little coffee shop is brewing up to be another winner, in this already cool bus depot!

Bill, Pete, and Greg, Thanks for your comments. I've spend an hour or so at my lathe and turned
parts from resin. A coffee urn, stacks of dishes, and a couple of ashtrays for the waiting room.
While looking for something else last night I found an old Blair Lines laser kit for a Greyhound
Bus sign that I did not even know I had. I painted and assembled it and now have it sitting in place
temporarily.

Great job on those cigars! And the Greyhound sign, what a fortuitous find!

Bob, this is coming together nicely. I love the "arborite" counter in the coffee shop.

I'm just getting caught up Bob. Your detailing is crazy! I'm really enjoying watching you put the interior of the terminal together. I'm amazed at what you do. That waiting area scene with the phones is fantastic!

Ray, Jeff, Mark, and Ted, thanks for your comments.

Here's the LITTLE coffee shop as it now stands. I have yet to make the magazine and newspaper display racks.

That should do the trick! Looks great -- are those cut-outs in the last shot for windows? Meaning: is this the view we'll see from building exterior?

Cheers,

Dallas,
Yes, they match the two windows in the front of the building. I had not really planned it
that way but it happened.

Here's a couple of quick shots so you can see how the elements are placed for the interior I
have done so far.

Bob, it's all looking really incredible!
I love the counter top Coca-Cola soda dispenser.
You have certainly captured the look & feel of a Bus stop from that time period.

Hey Bob! I thought of something you could put on that bare wall between the ticket booth and the snack counter.
How about a coin operated scale, or some gumball machines.
Or the ultimate would be a map of North America showing all of the Greyhound bus routes & destinations.
Just thinking out loud.
