    Brad, do you have Ron Williams' contact info? I am pretty sure he has dimensioned drawings of the Lebanon depot.

    Attached are a site and floor plan. I can't remember where I got the dimensions, but I had drawn it in AutoCad decades ago. I found the .dwg files, and a colleague converted them for me. I think the basic depot is very close in size to the AT&SF brick depot that Dr. Logan Holtgrewe scratch built for a clinic at the 1984 NMRA National in Kansas City and that Walthers later introduced as an HO kit. Logan's two-part article appeared in two successive issues of Model Railroader back in March & April 1986. One was in the same issue as the first feature on George Sellos' Franklin & South Manchester (FSM!). The Lebanon depot was 8-1/4" hollow tile walls where Logan's Girard, KS Santa Fe depot was brick. He used H&R brick sheet. They probably have tile sheet too. The attached freight house should be easy to scratch build. There are four photos of the depot on that Missouri Depots web site. Google it. The ones above are better and show at least three different configurations.

    Here is my version of the Lebanon depot, not exact, but close enough for me. Got to do some weathering and it will be close to finished for now. Did most of the actual construction in a hotel room.

  12. Great work as always! That’s a big structure isn’t it?
    What did you use for the stucco texture?

    Thanks for the compliments. Easiest thing in the world, so simple a caveman could do it! You'v got the styrene shell of the structure. You brush paint the surface with a tan color and sprinkle very fine aggregate onto the wet paint. The paint bonds with the aggregate glueing it in place. Only two things, don't get too far ahead with the paint that it is starting to dry before you your aggregate in the paint. Second don't get the paint so thick you start to obscure detail. It's that simple.

    Saw an article in Model Railroader where the author used Spray Mount (the rubber cement that comes in an aerosol can) to simulate stucco, Apparently after it set up a bit and lost most of its tackiness he airbrushed (or rattle-canned) it to get it to have the right color. It looked to be a very simple and effective technique.

    Brad, Nice work on the Lebanon Depot.
    Will the track side of this structure face away from view when placed on the layout? It would be a shame to have the track side not shown.
    This is the problem I am dealing with if I build the St. James depot and placed on the layout permanently . I have given some thought about just placing it on the spot so it can be lifted off, to show the track side of it if someone wanted to view it.

    Thanks for the compliment and good observation. As the layout plans stands at this point yes the trackside would be facing away from the isle. Not my first choice, but from an operating and design standpoint there is really no other option. I will mount it so that it can be removed for viewing and there was a track that ran on the backside of the station serving a yet to be built dock that ran the length of the freight end. Looking forward to seeing your completed St James depot.
