A NEW STATION BUILDING part two

Progress over the past week has been made with spraying the main shell of the building with light stone as described  by James McInerney  along with the other colours used in this scheme in Branchline Modeller number 1. It is an idea to mix the paint to the right colour  and then take it to Bristol Paints or Inspirations  who will duplicate the colour in enamel for you.

The windows used are Grant Line 5215 as I find them easy to modify by sanding/filing the tops flat. The Ladies toilet windows are Grant Line 5117 that have been carefully narrowed by 50% and glued into the wall straight away, then painted after the main building has been sprayed. The doors are Grant line 5058 these do not need trimming. The awning brackets are from Ian Lindsay Models and are a very nice brass casting, check for availability. Just to add, the roof assembly has not been glued in place at this stage. That concludes the progress to date, still a long way to go, part 3 soon.

    Fantastic work. Love how you just get stuck in and in no time it’s taking shape. Obviously a lot of planning and research before the photo begin!

    I have been an enthusiastic follower of your modeling of Burrowa and have just (after 40years of having made the decision) commenced construction of my representation of the Boorowa – Galong Branch line. The A4 station building at Boorowa apparently was the subject of alterations in accordance with a plan prepared by the Way and Works Branch dated June 1939. the purpose of this alteration was to include an additional room (Parcels Office) between the Ladies Room and Store. As a result there came into being a 12’0″ General Waiting Room, 12’0” SM’s Office and Ticket Office and a 14’0″ Parcels Office. As a result the existing fireplace was included as part of the store and the SM seems to have been left out in the cold…………..cheers, Ernie Kapp.
