Hi Rich,

The benchwork behind the depot will be extended, but it will be easier to finish the rest of Jefferson (general store, two houses, a small sawmill and the school) first, while I can still reach it more easily. There's also a telegraph line and a double out-house, but again I'd rather reach over those as little as possible so they'll wait a bit.

Cheers,
Jeff.

Jeff, she's beautiful, I really like the sloped ground work. I think it's a good idea not to restrict reach before you have to too.

Jeff, your Jefferson station looks like it's been literally lifted from the pages of history, and placed on your layout.
Great Job!

Rich, I appreciate your compliments. I cheated and used a pen light for the elevator interior.

Dave Clark...Thank you!

I pulled out the razor saw and sliced up the walls to my structure tonight:

I have noticed that the walls that I cut off had the brickwork wrapping around the end so I'll either have to carve the bricks back in or cover the now blank styrene somehow.

I took off two small strips on the top and bottom of the short end walls to make them match up with the tall end wall. I just have to splice them together now.

Now I was considering just covering the three dock doors with the brick sheet overlay but it's a bit too thick to look right. I can cut and remove that section and replace it with the brick sheet. I'm leaning toward that solution.

Jeff, that's a wonderful looking station. Adding the interior has really finished it off.

Glen, your cuts have come up really good. Re losing the brick detail on the edge. With the DPM kits you have to sand off most of the edge brick detail anyhow due to the draft angles.
I always have to re-carve the bricks on the edge.

Here's how my front two walls have come up now they are glued. A small amount of styrene was used to finish them off before I start painting.

Jeff, Fantastic job on Jefferson station. I like how all the building and scenery colors work together. Very realistic.

Glen, you did a neat job of cutting. Did you consider just covering the doors with brick to suggest they had been bricked up?

Mike
