I found your site about 4 months ago and have thoroughly enjoyed your posts, pictures, videos, and modeling tips. I have since paid for the golden ticket and found it to be a great investment. I consider myself an amateur compared to most of the people who are sending in pictures and videos.
I used to have an n scale train set when I was a kid and really enjoyed it. About 14 months ago I found a box in my attic with some of my old n scale trains, track, etc. There was not much left but it got me thinking about researching what it would take to start up again. A little over a year later I am totally hooked.
Being from Worcester, Ma. I have always been interested in Worcester Union Station which was restored a few years back. I have attached a few pictures of the actual station. I then found a model of the station (a laser cut wood model) that I had to have. I was warned that this would not be a good project if I have not built a laser cut model yet, but I ignored the advise, purchased the model on line, and went to work. 100 hours later, here is how it came out.
It is the centerpiece of my layout and the first thing people notice when the see my layout. I have attached some pictures for you.
A big thank you to Ray – really enjoyed his layout. I remember his station build too (I got in to trouble calling it a scratch build, when it’s a kit. Still looks great).
That’s all this time folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
And if you’re still sitting on the side lines, this’ll help you take the plunge.
