E. L. Moore's Branch Line Station

[E. L. Moore's Branch Line Station; J. Collier collection]

E. L. Moore's Branch Line Station appeared in the April 1964 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman.
The Branch Line Station, sometimes referred to as the Rocky Ridge Station, is another one of Mr. Moore's green projects. Green being his favourite colour, many of his projects were painted green.
I was surprised to see that the shade of green used on Mr. Moore's original is fairly close to the colour I used on the N-scale version I built back in the spring. But, at the time I wasn't sure I'd like his choice of yellow for trim, so I used a brick red. The yellow looks quite alright.
The paint I used was Tamiya's acrylic Deep Green, XF-26.
The roof is built using his standard technique of balsa roof panels held together with solid, balsa gussets.
The interior detail described in the article is missing, but it's still neat and clean in there.
