Hello Everyone,
Eaglewings Iron Craft is working on two new G scale buildings. We have the two prototypes put together with no finish yet. We wanted to share them with you and get your valuable opinion.
The first one is a Freight Station (T â€" 5, Train Structure 5). The platform is 17â€� long by 10 â€" 1/2 “wide. The Building is 10â€� long by 9â€� wide by 6 â€" ½ “tall.


The second building is a Passenger Station (T â€" 4, Train Structure 4). This one is 24â€� long by 13 â€" ½â€� wide by 15â€� tall.


One thing that we’re doing differently to our buildings is that now instead of having a glossy powder coated finish; we’ll have them powder coated with a rust resistant primer so that it can be detailed easier and will have the extra rust protection.
We are really looking forward to hearing what you think about them.

Dan,
Beautiful work - as usual. I like both buildings. I would like one or both on my layout! Thanks for the info on the water tower. I will be calling in an order for one soon.
Best, Ted

Dan,
For future consideration, you may wish to add a ramp on one end of the platform, leading down to ground level.
Not everything shows up at the depot on a flatbed... :)

I thought the Goods Shed was the better of the two, a lot more appeal I thought the Station House
Building is a little to much like a Dolls House for my liking, in Western Australia, this Style of Station House is
found only as a Main Junction Station Like "Walkaway" or "Bunbury" maybe even "Perth", so I believe
that on a Garden Railway Layout this would be a little overbearing, while that Goods shed will and would
fit in anywhere you wished.

Well done,
John Richards.

Duncan,

That is a great idea. That's the neat part about these buildings is that you or us can kitbash it any way you want. Thanks again.

Both buildings are excellent in their primer gray but of course everyone will have their own ideas about colours. Not to big - not to small, for a prairie railroad in these parts.
