At the local narrow gauge convention, I bought a Detail associates kit for the "Foothill station".

The kit is sold out since many years, so I guess it could be hard to find another one....

It is a mixed media, but mostly wood, kit with plastic windows and doors.

The building is made for two levels of terrain which I will use to serve two railroads.

A standard gauge railroad on the upper level, and a HOn3 narrow gauge on the lower.

A bit like John Allen did with Corsa on the G&D.

So, here are some pics of the build:

I made fake nail heads on the walls with a Trumpeter rivet wheel.

The various posts were a bit fiddly to line up against each other.....

 

The roofs shingled and test fitted:

Next step was the windows and doors. And painting it.

I used Humbrol enamels for all of the painting.

The windows were glassed with slide covers as I find them much realistic.

The almost finished kit as it stands now:

the nailheads can just be seen here....

Just a bit more to do, as connecting the lights and lay the tracks in front of the station. some ground cover would be nice as well..

;)

A "vintage" pic of the station:

It will represent the station in my freelanced version of Minturn Colorado.
