As the J3 Station Masters residence is the correct building for this location I thought I had better do something about it. A trip into Barnes Hobbies to get the right Evergreen plasticard sheet stock number 4083 novelty siding and various strips were needed.The plan came from NSWGR Station Building Diagrams and as the measurements are on the diagrams I was able to photocopy them to get the right size. It has taken a couple of weeks to get this far as the chimney stacks took a lot of time. For the windows/doors I will use Grant Line parts 5293,5195,5058 and 5239 they are the closest to the prototype I could find,they were obtained from The Railcar check out their website as they have some interesting bits an pieces mainly O gauge with some HO scale .
This type of building is quite common on branch lines eg Tumut,Crookwell and Boorowa just to name a few there are subtle differences with each building. As there is not a kit of this available it’s a scratch build. Part two soon.

  1. Beautiful railway, Peter, and I don’t know how it took me so long to discover it! This is exactly along the same lines as the next railway I will build, but I’ll move the era forward to late 1970s and have it on its last legs. Certainly inspirational! Thanks for sharing this with us!

      The late seventies sounds like a good proposition with all the new models available it won’t be a problem.Although the track plan of this layout is quite basic it gives me hours of operational pleasure.Good luck with your project.Thanks for your comment. Peter.

    Hi Peter, the SM residence model looks great. Which thickness and board spacing did you use for the walls?
