Engine Shed for the Branchline

We are constructing a branchline for Allingham based on GWR/Western Region. The line ends up at a terminus station serving a small town. We decided to construct this section of the layout to fine scale (code 75 rail, hand built points) vs the code 100 railof the main layout.

I put my hand up to build the engine shed and we decided upon a small affair based on that at Tetbury. Fortunately we had a book to hand that provided photographs and line drawings of the shed to 4mm scale.

The finsihed product is shown here:

Construction is 0.040" Evergreen plastic sheet overlaid with Slaters English Bond brick. Various plastic strip was used for detailing.
