Finally...the "terrace" is finsihed...




Terrace railing and other details being added...




The "terrece" is now under construction...it's corrugated cardboard, chipboard and paper...working on railings and other details...will be about 19 1/2" wide...








finished...except for name plate over entry...





i have always admired the lionel 115 station...but it's too large for my small marx layout...i needed something smaller...scaled down and compressed...to about 7" high, 9" wide and 3" deep...will be on a base about 7" x 12"...not a true scale piece...or an exact copy of the original...

i want to thank chris for sending me the dimensions of his original station...i used them and internet images as a basis for my version...

being built from: chipboard and cereal box cardboard...plus paper and corrugated cardboard...1/4" hardware cloth window mullions...cross-stitch plastic canvas for mullions in two entry arches...

will get two coats of white primer...plus cream and red color scheme...sidewalk gray base...after all details are added it will get several coats of clear gloss spray to look like tin...

i've started on a "terrace" for the station...no pix yet...soon i hope...

toy trains...where it all started for me...over 60 years ago...

my very best regards...

howard...here in hot and humid north florida...
