NORTHERN PACIFIC ISSAQUAH, WA STATION
When I went to the 2004 Seattle NMRA Convention, I had the
opportunity to tour a couple old NP stations. This one had been recently
rebuilt, and had been painted in near original Brown paint with Green, White,
and Red trim. I really liked this station so I built it in Z Scale and painted
it in the Sand and Brown scheme that it last wore in the NP era.
Here's the front:
And here's the back:
I built another final version, and decided to paint it in the
colors the depot wears today:
I made a few enhancements, like more accurate chimney's, added
signs, figures, and details to enhance the scene.
I also made my own laser cut shingles. The first model has $10
worth of Paper Creek Model Works laser cut shingles, and I had to reduce the
cost. The first ones I made cost about $7 worth of laser time, but I figured out
how to reduce the costs to under $2 worth of laser time.
