While not up to Pierre's standards I have made this station based on a standard design used by Chemin de Fer Drome, modeled on the one still standing at Dieulefit. It is is made from scrap ply, plastic card for the windows and doors and DIY store uPVC angle door the stucco corners and window surrounds.

As you can see its footprint is much larger than I had allowed for so additional land is being acquired to complete the station.

I found in photoshop you can square up pictures so I did this from pictures of the elevations and then scaled off them having taking some measurements on site. (The Surveyor in me Very Happy )

The station is still used for the bus that replaced the tramway and is now a car park. Sadly the town demolished the engine shed last year.

Excellent effort Peter.

It's always more satisfying to see scratchbuilt buildings on a layout, particularly when they reflect real life prototypes!

Thanks for the comments

The paint is 12":1ft real crepi as used on the adjoining wall below! Only looks overscale close up. Do you like the signage - brocante bargain. Note the waterproofed DC control table.

I think that I will add dolls house plastic roof tile sheets to the buildings.

Nice job Peter. Certainly looks like it was intended to be in that place!
