My question is this. There are some signs supplied with the kit which aren't pictured or described in the kit documentation. One is obviously a station name sign, ........
'Brett McBain ordered this sign, but he didn't say what he wanted on it'

'Station, ...... I said, put Station on it'

Quote from one of my favourite films (and actresses).

Looks fantastic, especially the rust effect.

I had one of these buildings on my garden railway. There was no room for it on the new indoor version, but I needed a hut. By sawing off the open bit with the seat, you are left with a nice lineside hut.

The half not used for the hut in the photo above has now been made into a triangular shaped building to go against the backscene.

Great out of the box use of the left overs. Be good to see a pic of it in place sometime. What you going to do with the rest, another corner piece with a scratch built front and side?

Hi, I’ll attach a photo when it is in place. That’s quite a challenge to see what I can do with the few remaining bits! I like a challenge.

A very nice structure. I have to confess at first glance I thought the thread title was Hammersmith Station!

More inspiration from this great forum. I bought the Hammerstein kit for my Rugen themed line. I wanted it ro be largely enclosed so I replaced the back panel with plastic sheet and fitted it to the front. I added a door so it is a little like the shelter at Wiek and other locations on the line from Bergen Rugen.
i Hope photos Show what i have done. Great value Building.
