As I'm building my country town, I thought a railway needs to pass through here - so here's the first of the MOC's to do with trains in my town. :sweet:

Once I have a platform made I'll post more pictures then - this station is based a little around the new station comming later in the year. :wink:
Comments welcome - plus any ideas are also welcome ! :sweet:
Keep on bricking ! :sweet:

Well I did say two things - 1. it ia based off the new train station - it is my own take on it. - 2. I'll be doing the platform is not done yet (but maybe in the next two days).
This is only for a small country town, not a city.
But thank you anyway 'vgo' for your comment - it all helps !
Keep on bricking ! :sweet:

A bit small for a station, but still a nice effort to create a place for waiting train passengers.  Maybe you could add a bench in case the train is late.  Are you planning to build a train next?

As he said, the platform is yet to arrive.
So, I would assume there will be benches for waiting passengers.

Also, that looks less like a waiting room, and more like the ticket booth to me, but that might just be my imagination.

Thank you 'The Brickster' and 'Melfice' for your comments - another Q&A - cool ! :sweet:
Now, yes to bench seating - a platform would not be a platform without them eh ? :grin:
Next, 'Melfice' it's a.............ticket office, there is a door to the right side of the building for the station master to go in and sell tickets - I wonder if I need a fat controller ? :laugh:
I'm planning on using the platform design in part from 7997 - so I'll post a.s.a.p. the end result.
Keep on bricking everyone ! :sweet:

Very nice train station lightningtiger! :thumbup:
It's small and quite cute. I like the colours of it. :thumbup:
Are you planing on building a small train to go with this platform? :sweet:
Great work!

Thanks  'CommanderFox' for your kind reply :sweet: , Yes is the answer to the train question. :grin:
First, the new yellow cargo train is going to become a Pacific National yellow and blue engine, but for regular human cargo I'm thinking a long the lines of something like the Overlander, maybe or older types like the Bluebird which ran to south east of South Australia.
I will really have my work cut for me then with either type of train.
Keep on bricking ! :sweet:
