    Oh man that's what my Atlas station is going to look like a year after passenger service is finally discontinued on my layout! :) Nice work wearing that old standard down and giving it a unique abandoned look. I love the old newspaper on the bench.

    I love it! You weathered it well. It looks great. Love the weeds growing in cracks. The newspapers are a nice touch.

    WOW, very nicely done. I really like your weathering you have done. The extra fine details is a great touch.

    But, the concrete base is to new looking. I think you need to dirty it up a little to match the building.

    Great job over all.
