I resumed building a two stall engine house for a friend of mine. Started last year at the beginning of December and then had a months holiday. Again, it is a scratch built HO scale engine house but in standard gauge – 16,5mm. Had no plans but used my experience and photos of my one. My own finished one is HOn3 (3 foot narrow gauge) and is on my layout.
Total hours spent so far is 11.5h.
It will be fully detailed inside and out as well as lighting inside.
Bottom photo is my “workbench (roll top desk)” where all the magic happens.
Top photo is of my engine house in position on the layout being finished. Pardon the guy lying down on the job. The shed on the right houses the arc welding unit for the guy welding inside.
Will keep you posted with updates.

And don’t forget the latest ebay cheat sheet – silly bargains to be had a the mo.
