Thanks, guys. I'm really pleased with this one, and it's right up front where visitors can get a good, close look at it. I'm planning to make a special box to cover it when not in use.

Disgustingly excellent. And, yes, cover it to protect it. That depot is a gem. -- Russ

I shot some pics last night with the lights on… it looks so cool! For these shots I just hooked it up to a 9v battery since I haven't yet run wires to the depot site. Here are some of the night pics:



 
In this next shot, the small lights above the depot are from the Cliffside Mine:






 


 
The frames photos on the wall by the stairs are pics of my dad:



 



 


 


 



 
I'm not real happy with the figure seen through the bay window. It was just a resin copy of a cheap figure I found on ebay a long time ago. I may replace it later with something better:

Ray, most phone booths were closed to keep out bad weather.

But open or closed would be fine.

Looks great.

I recently built a special box to protect the depot from sun and weather. It's made from 6mm Sintra and painted with white exterior house paint:






It was pretty easy to do this for the depot because it stands alone, and on a flat surface. I would like to do this for my other buildings, but the grouping and locations make it difficult.

That looks like a good idea. How much room is there between the rest of the town and the mountain?

None. Some of the buildings, the second story actually sits on the side of the mountain.

You should put "TERMITE" signs on it!

Great idea Ray, that depot is special. Of course you have a lot of other buildings that I think should be protected too.

LOL! Now I'm actually feeling tempted to paint it to look like fumigation tenting.
