Calamity Gets a New RR Station - Part 5

Not a whole lot has been accomplished. I was planning to sit down this evening and make some serious progress on the station. The parts I needed had arrived, however, when I got home one of the boys had put the box in a "safe place" and I still haven't found them.

A nice Vallejo Hull Red applied to the frames. I think this is going to look pretty sharp when I'm done.
