Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
I recently decided to upgrade the scenery are the north end of Wilmington Yard. A friend made a comment about the "great white whale", the GW Bush & Sons coal dealership, so I was shamed into finishing it and giving it a first coat of paint.
That inspired me to start work on the yard office at 6th Ave. It was a frame structure with a 2 story portion with a hip roof and one story addition with a peaked roof. Because I had reconfigured the alignment, I had to rearrange the design of the yard office (more or less making a mirror image). I estimated the size from two rather grainy photos. I couldn't find a picture of the south side of the building so guestimated what it would look like.
Here is the yard office in early construction, it is made of a .040 styrene core with Evergreen siding and strip styrene overlaid on the core. The windows and doors are Tichy castings. The tan building was a cardboard stand in structure I've been using for the last couple years. The single story portion has the walls and ends, the two story portion, only two of the walls.
Here is the yard office further along with the walls done and the sub roofs on. I also need to add a little roof/awning that sticks out from the building along the top of the first story, where the plain band is on the structure.
Some more details and in a couple weeks it will get a coat of Reading "chocolate and vanilla" paint. Will be challenge since all the trim, including the verticals along the windows, were painted brown.
