    Well, this might seem a little crazy for a train station, but since this is freelance, & I'm just kinda "imagineering" this whole thing, on a whim, I decided to put concrete planters on the plaza area, & give it a little greenery. I also added some railing around the edges.

    I also used styrene to raise the base 2 1/2 scale ft. to the same height as the boarding platforms...I covered the bare styrene with H&R brick sheet & some styrene strip.

    I haven't gotten a lot done on this one in the last couple of months, but here is an update...

    I made some steps for the arched doorway, & added some details, & gravel, to the roof...

    Here's a couple of pics to show how the diorama is shaping up...the tracs are in, but no ballast, or bumpers yet...& details are begining to appear on the platforms...

    Lookin' good Charlie. The LPB lounging on the platform bench looks like he is waiting for something to do like ballasting your track
