Soooooooo after watching a few videos of trains pulling into the station, I decided to destroy the first attempt and rebuild it with a full interior. I realized that the lobby is easily seen from the platform. It also allowed me to make a few tweaks. I am happy with this version so I won't destroy it.

Nice. Looks really nice. Is that corrugated styrene?

Today I added trim both inside and out all the way around to prepare for painting and windows. I also added the other side of the platform roof and begin doing the support posts. It's not wonky like it seems from the photos. The roof twists and turns when I don't have the rigid support in there. It really does sit straight. You can see the corner trim outside the clapboard siding now. Hope to prime it soon and do some light blocking. Then a proper paint job. Got some amazing paper shingles. Can't wait to see them in place.
