Thanks for all the info i will see how I progress at the moment its single track working apart from the station as would be the case of a passing loop as well.
I don't - the depot (station) section of my railroad is sheltered by a hedge and my shed - the direction that is open to the garden faces east, and we rarely have extreme winds from the east. The few buildings I have are fixed to the groundI have just taken into storage most of my buildings, as strong winds forecast over the weekend, what do others do to protect there buildings and line side accessories?
That will make it 160 square feet floor space. 16 times 10. For cube you would need to multiply that by the height but that gets somewhat tricky as you have the sloping roof to consider. Mathematicians to the fore please?The shed is 16’ x 10’
OK, so let's say the height to eaves is 6ft and the height to ridge is another 2 ft.That will make it 160 square feet floor space. 16 times 10.

Thanks for the Math. I took his 10ft from his post #89. Of course there are other variables that will reduce the values, internal supports and all that stuff so any calculation will be a nearenoughish and certainly much better than we used to use for project quotes on BR of +/- 10%. These days to get anywhere near that sort of quote to a Public institution on either cost or build time would be a near miracle.OK, so let's say the height to eaves is 6ft and the height to ridge is another 2 ft.
I think you could be a bit ambitious with your 10 ft wide, nearer 8ft is my guess.
So, 16 x 8 = 128 sq ft base area, 128 x 6 = 768 cu ft to eaves.
For the gable, the area of a triangle is half base times height, so 6 divided by 2 times 2 = 6 sq ft multiply by the length of 16 to get the volume = 96 cu ft
Add the two, 768 + 96 = 864 cu ft.
So we think the cubic capacity of the shed is 864 cu ft
What do we want to know?
Oh, OK, missed that.Thanks for the Math. I took his 10ft from his post #89.
