            Way back when I first envisioned this depot, it would have been one of my first buildings on the layout. I used an antiquated 3D modeling program to create a couple renderings of what I had in mind:








            However, at the time I decided that I should wait until had some more experience with structures, before attempting something as relatively complex as the depot. I'm glad I waited, because I know a lot more about what I'm doing now, than I did then. I will be using different materials than I had originally planned to use.

            Today I put together a crude foam core mockup of the depot and placed it on the layout, to help me get a feel for how it will look and fit into the town. The center part of the building will be two stories. Both that section, and the west wing, will have peaked roofs covered with Spanish tiles. I decided to add an east wing which will be an open, shaded waiting area. This will have a flat roof supported by arches. Here are some photos from various angles:
















            What do you think?

              I think you are an extremely talented and gifted 'craftsman'...

              And that is a great web site you have there as well. Thanks for sharing all that modeling

              information. Great photographs and very interesting..[^]

                    I think it's a great addition to the layout. Can't wait to see it.

                      Ray,

                      Looking forward to the depot construction! How do you make the fancy cuts in the foam board look so perfect and hold the 90 degree edge from the face? Checked out your airbrush work and WOW!!!!!

                        From a prototype perspective, I bet they'd want to have station platforms. But given your space, that's probably not practical. Are you going to do this in stone or stucco?

                          Thanks, everyone! And Mario, thanks for the comments about my website and art.

                          Guff, the cuts in the foam core mockup are actually far from perfect and not always a 90 degree edge. The imperfections just don't show up well in photos. If I'm really careful I can get it a little more accurate but for a rough mockup there's no need.

                          Dave, I'm thinking that the bottom of the walls will be stone blocks, like a wainscote, and the upper part of the walls will be random or rubble stone.

                            Great subject and design for your depot, Ray. I'm looking forward to see your build of it.

                              Looks great Ray,

                              You should get you a 3D printer.
