the north and south end (addition?) walls
I'm still short a door, but since that door is on the rear of the main section I'm going to plunge ahead without it.

should point out  
there is a view block 3 1/2 inches in front of the backdrop covered in "improved lichen" (lichen dipped in rubber cement and then in salvaged ground foam) from "the vault of the ages" (a box of stuff salvaged from 50 years of model railroading)  
the view block conceals the "escape track" which connects the staging yards

squeezing in behind the engine house and jammed up against the backdrop is a mock up of 1/2 model compressed Boon St Station.  
 
this is the 4th mock up, each one seems to be bigger than the one before.  it has grown from 7 1/2 inches to 11 inches so far.  next try will lengthen the open shed end.

the old fashioned way.  I roughed up a stip of balsa wood, then drew the stone detail on with an old ballpoint pen.
