      Mike,

      Boy, that station came out great. That is a great way to shape the platform to the track curvature.

        Thanks Rick, Pat and Bruce. Pat no I use math just like everyone else. I put the full rafter on the end and a tail at the edge of the wall. The rest are laid out on 2' centers.

          Mike,

          The station looks great.

          I have the Nenana Depot from AMB and they do not supply rafter tails with the kit.

          However the real station has them and I will have to add them from scratch.

          I think I may give Pat's method a try since the station is large and there are many rafter tails.

          Is 2' between rafters the common distance?

            Thanks John, back in the 50's and earlier building were mostly framed on 16" center, all floor, walls and roofs. For modeling proposes I use 2' center because it is easier to lay things out. I don't think that difference between 16"o.c. and 24"o.c. shows up very well in HO scale.
