    Thanks, the roofing is one of Richs' (@spyder62) roofing sheets so the appearance of the roof is courtesy of Rich

    I was thinking the same thing. I know it has happened in my Department, but fortunately, not to me. We won't talk about backing up.

    GORGEOUS! The more you do, the more anxious I am to see an overview of the layout complete (or mostly, since layouts are rarely complete).

    You should get some fine brass wire a make a pole, just inside the door for your firemen to slide down, no decent firehouse is without a brass pole. Maybe some lockers against the wall too....

    I like the pole idea and your right - no self respecting two story fire house would be without a pole As for the cabinets/lockers - I have em but they wont be all that visible and I have moved away from the idea of lighting the thing as I can only light the top floor due to a first floor ceiling

    Your build is terrific. Long ago I gave this same kit a shot and agree its one of the nicest n-scale buildings in terms of putting together and outcome!

    Just another n-scaler.

    Regrettably, they are dying out. We built a new station in 2005 and weren't allowed to put one in. Liability they said. Too many injuries from landing the wrong way. We had one in one of the stations the new one replaced and I never had a problem. That old station Tony built should definitely have one though. They are a pain to polish too. I do not miss polishing that pole and brass nozzles. I can still smell the brass cleaner.
    Cheers!

    Came out great! Both yours and Schedule22s. I really like the look of the windows in that kit.
