Its Done! kinda

The windows and doors for the other side finally decided to show up.  I also added the glazing and the shades in the windows.  The only thing not yet done is the steps on the passenger platform and the front of the depot.  I cant decide what to do for the front steps.  Here is some photos of the depot, but this is the front which hasn't been shown until now.

Depot Progress #3

The depot is about 95% done.  The windows for the other side should show up on Monday or Tuesday.  After they are painted and in place I will spray with a good coat of dullcote.  Then I can install the glazing and window shades.  I have a little work to do on the chimney and a few other roof details and finally  the steps off of the passenger platform and the main entry way.  In total only about two to three hours left and it is done.  Then its on to the Farmers Co-op / Grain Elevator.

Hotel Sign

This is just a basic sign that I found while on vacation in Jackson Hole Wyoming.  I simply love these old signs.

Beginings of the Depot

Yesterday the wood I ordered decided to show up, so I went ahead and started construction of the depot.  So far everything is going smoothly.  This is the first scratch built building I have done using wood and so far I really like it.  When I start doing my module for the club most of the buildings will be wood, so I can't wait to start those.  The walls to the main waiting area is all that is up as of yet, I hope to have the freight house up soon.  Please enjoy the very pictures of the depot is it's infancy.

City of Hudson overview

I have posted pictures of some of these buildings before, but I have not shown them together.  Also the large red brick building is one that I have not had on here before.  It is the Steven's Hotel, the yellow one to the right of it is Stern Storage.  I just wanted to show how I hope to have these all come together in the future.  I have started doing some work on the Dominion Bldg. until some things I ordered show up for the little station for the club layout.
