Looks great John.  Are you planning on putting any other roofing on the cards?

Thank you, and yes I plan on the traditional rolled roofing.  I had a passing thought of doing shingles but a quick calculation of how many sheets I would need put an end to that idea.  This is a big roof and I will have four more stalls right next to it that need a matching roof.

Thank you, I'm not going to put a lot of detail into them because they will only be visible on the edge and two ends because they will be mounted in the open position.

The template cards are back on the workbench for the G. Wilikers build.  As soon as I get the windows in the Brick Roundhouse clerestory wall sections my detailing workbench will be available to continue the build. I have managed to paint most of the detail castings in-between Brick Roundhouse build steps.

I took a quick picture of the Roundhouse with the beams completed and stained - let the roofing begin.

I know it's big and there will be another 4 stalls beside it. I can't wait to see it on the layout. I like the dark beams - it will look like steam locomotives live here once the roof goes on and the interior has some LED lighting.

Thank you for the encouraging comments. This has been a big project and I'm getting real excited to get it on the layout.

Thank you for the kind words and for following along.  It's about to start looking like a roundhouse.  I have window castings laying all over my workbench with the window glass drying.  I will be installing windows in the clerestory walls tomorrow.

John,

I've been following along with your roundhouse exploits. Wow, what a great looking structure. With it full of steam locos and yard junk it will certainly be an  eye catcher. Great job my friend.
