Oh, Well…

My visit to the Peterborough Train Show today yielded a treasure trove of information on the B&M Peterborough branch at Larry Kemp’s extensive display. If you’ve been following the blog, I just finished my rendition of  That Corrugated Shed seen in many photos of Peterborough.

Luckily I had placed it at the back of the scene with its rear facing the aisle because the front of the building was nothing like I had assumed. See the full sized shed in Larry’s HO display below. The prototype looks a little like the Atlas lumber yard kit but with corrugated siding. The front is actually a series of sliding doors for lumber storage bays. The angled loft encloses a veranda to the second story bays. Mine has just a single freight door. Oh well… We all know the real meaning of ASSUME, don’t we?

I have no intention of changing my model. It is what it is. And you can’t see the front from where it is set in the scene. But isn’t that just how it goes!
