I’ve really struggled this year trying to decide what to build. I love the category Dave chose as it lends itself to things I want to build and there’s the rub: too many things. My first thought was a coal dock but it would be too big. The one I want to build would have to be 10 feet or longer and I simply don’t have the room for that inside. My next thought was a car (rolling stock) repair shop but I don’t think I can get it built and detailed like I want in 30 days. In years past, I have bitten off more than I can build within the time limit so this year I decided to build on the small side.
I’m going to build a backwoods station that will sit on a platform that is about 20" x 9" and it will have a small passenger shelter, ticket office and an area for a little freight. Here is the napkin drawing:
Excuse the chicken scratch. An artist I am NOT!! More to come.
