I like my Walthers Cornerstone buildings because of their realistic size and Proto 2000 buildings because theyre pre-painted.

I just love the new Walther's Milwaukee Station and planning getting one.
Union Station I like also.

I'm a fan of both American Model Builder's Laser Kits and Branchline Trains Laser Art Structures. The peel and stick windows, doors, trim, and roofing really speeds assembly and creates a clean finished look.

That is nice. Looks like it has the same sign that is on the Bellevue, OH NYC freight house. https://www.madrivermuseum.org/gallery/equipment/nyc_freight_house.jpg

Hi, Henry!  I guess that this is the Mad River museum building now? The building looks to be in good shape. The sign is interesting. It still has its original lighting. It seems to be missing a Freight door for the platform. The old passenger car and baggage car may be vintage equipment stored on the track along side the building for this Historical Society.  
* A very interesting building!

Yes it is one of the Mad River society's buildings. They have a pretty good amount of equipment there. I haven't been there in over a decade. I used to live less than a half hour away from Bellevue so I got there on a fairly regular basis. It is still a pretty busy RR town, but it must have been a fantastic train watching spot back in the day! It had the NKP and PRR crossing the NYC and W&LE at the same spot in town. Now NS owns all, but the NYC, which was abandoned long ago.
