    That is an interesting and odd-looking engine shed. Do the big doors pivot, or can they be made to pivot, so that engines go & come? I have this fear that they are static and you assemble them either open or shut.

    How nervous did it make you, adhering rails sans ties to the base with CA? Did you have any working time to check & adjust the gauge or was it just instant bonding?

    The doors are static , I left one side open , the other closed , I have been googling for photo's of a tool wall, engine shed wall or something like that so it can act as an interior wall but haven't found exactly what I was looking for .

    The rails I did by cutting out the necessary ties from a piece of flex track and then holding it along a metal ruler , making sure the ruler wasn't glued down.

    Weathering the roof with powders , a bit too much , no not really , you'll see later.


    Same roofs after a spray of Dullcoat. And some more photo's of the finished outside of the structure, still hoping to find a decent photo for the inside.

    At first this is what I was thinking until I realized the door was upside down! Thought maybe there was going to be a fire escape or extra platform to customize the kit further.

    It was an easy fix , took me a few minutes and a sharp razor blade to loosen the wall , and now the glue is drying .

    Great looking kit and very nice job putting it together as well, despite the minor hiccup

    That's a beautiful and fairly unique-looking kit.

    I've had in mind eventually building a steam era layout based at least thematically on the Buffalo Creek & Gauley or one of the many other small "up the holler" rail lines that dotted West Virginia back in the day. A shed like this would be right at home on such a layout.

    I don't feel so bad now for putting my brick on the wrong side of the wall. I am scratch building a house from a prototype and test fitted everything, numbered the pieces then applied the laser cut brick on it. When I went to glue the walls together the door came out on the wrong end of the house. I finally figured out I glued the brick on the inside of the one wall, not the outside. I planned on building another anyway so I am sure to get it right the 2nd time.

    I already asked on another forum , now I'm asking here , is there anyone that has a photo of an inside wall of an engine shed or an old factory wall , but then straight frontal , so I can glue that inside as interior .

    Something like this but then of a whole wall or a larger part of wall.
