Hello all - well, finally I get to post an MOC I was working on earlier this month. My very first railway station in Lego, and finally using the Emerald Night I built months ago! Due to the constrained space, unfortunately not part of a working train layout (for now!). The station was built with a Winter Village in mind (MOC posted in this thread) and so is snow-covered (white plate covered!)
A view of the front of the station on its own (in the final display pictured last here, there is a building hiding the platform):
Just another angle to get a sense of proportions. The ordinary stone "house" look was modelled roughly on some existing/closed simple Irish railway stations (although many of the ones in use are on former Great Southern & Western Railway which had many pseudo-chapel/castle buildings with fancy parapets and gothic windows, or have detailed Victorian trappings)
View from the platform - here you can see the canopy for the platform.
Close up on some waiting passengers and the station master. The people are an attempt at roughly early 20th century - as with others in the Winter Village.
The roof comes off in two pieces to allow access to the interior, and platform under canopy.
Another view showing (poorly unfortunately) the uncovered platform and seating.
There is a little room for the station master on the first floor (unfortunately out of focus). He has a radiogram (or whatever you call it).
A view inside the waiting room - a nice fire to keep people warm.
In case you thought a clock should be in the waiting room - there is one on the back wall above the ticket counter.
This wall simply lifts out to allow access to the ticket office. A simple filing cabinet, and hidden by the ticket man there is a little safe under the stairs. The stairs were, needless to say, tough to fit in (but I never like to omit stairs)!
Finally a view of the station in-situe in the Winter Village (again, will be posting this later, although the building beside the station which is not my own MOC/MOD/model, isn't finished yet).
