    Nice that the roof is removable, so we can see all the detail.
    The two buildings together make such a nice scene. Some of you best work yet. The old loco is a thing of beauty too.
    Rob,

    Thank you. The scene rather developed over the years. I built the enginehouse about 25 years ago, before I even had a place for it on my layout at the time. It now has a home. I built it for the NMRA Achievement Program; it's completely built board on board, including the board and batten sides and the windows. The only commercial parts are nbw's, downspouts, and the smoke jacks. I got a first in structures at an NMRA regional convention. The car shop was built more quickly with commercial sheetwood and Tichy windows.

    I wish that locomotive ran as good as it looks.

    Mike

      Thanks, Bill. I would probably want to add some interior details. I think an enginehouse like this was mainly for parking locomotives out of the weather and for doing only minor maintenance. Still, a few shelves and tools would look good.
