Glen, I used the drawings for this coal station that were in the December 1962 issue of Model Railroader. The way I do shingles is in an article in the current Gauge Magazine click here to see it: http://www.gaugemag.parkdaleyard.com/
Beautiful Robin! It never ceases to amaze me how much you get done, and how great it looks. While I dither and think 3 hours for every 10 minutes of actual work, you always seem to have it all figured out in your head in advance and then just build it to perfection. How the heck do you do that????
