    I finally finished the station for Valle Rojo. It is a Bar Mills Whistle Stop Junction kit. I added Northeastern shingles and removed some of the ginger bread and added figures. It will be seen from the back side view. :wave:

    That's a sweet looking little station.
    Got any pics of it on the layout?

    Mike, both of those buildings are great! I really like the adobe gas station - perfect use for a small lot.

    The day is coming soon when I can start adding buildings and scenery to my layout. Got a few buildings built, but it should keep me busy over the next year. Seeing these buildings on the forum keeps me inspired in the meantime!

    Thanks Jess , People used to say at train shows " this looks like a lot of work" and I used to say "things are only work if you don't like doing them"
