The Rusty Keg is going to get a light dusting of coal dust from the steam locos. This will finish the structure. It is also lit but I haven't drilled the holes for the wires as yet.

Here is the location of the structure in relation to the roundhouse.

That proximity to the roundhouse will make things easy for the call boy :-)

Tom,
 The finish you completed on the roof came out great.
Think that the Anita Metallic base color you started with is a new one ?... can't seem to find it at the craft stores here.
 Like the 3 different colors of rust that make it look used.
This thread is making me thirsty.

Wonderful job so far Tom.  I really like the idea of splitting this one up like you're doing.  There was just something about that contiguous block of structures that just didn't look right to me when this kit came out.  The roof looks great.   ;)

Hey Tom:

Look just beautiful. I love the corrugated roof.
