New station building

Following hard on the heels of Brewery Siding, a new station building has been installed. This is the Piko Rosenbach kit, although with a few modifications. The kit as supplied belies its 1:32 scale origins and the proportions aren't quite right for 1:22.5. However, it is a compact (bijou?!) building that just fits the available space.

The main objection that I had to the building as designed by Piko was that the windows on the first floor were impossibly low... so I raised them! On one side I have raised one central window, while on the other, I made the windows smaller. I've also amended the canopy to be more typical of the Austrian narrow gauge.
