Hey John:

Both the station and Sayles Mill look just beautiful. Can't wait to see them finsihed and on the layout.

Thank you for your kind words, my friend. It will not be long now before we can see what they look like on the layout.

Update: I made some more progress on the Eagles Nest Depot and the Sayles Mill builds, today.  I completed the roof for the freight depot and started to add the detail castings.  Many more to come. I also added a couple LED lights to the front top corners of the freight station so the interior detail will be visible through the open doors. The Sayles Mill has the annex building glued in place and a loading dock added to the annex building.  The deck will be covered by a roof.

Primary colors are hard to pull off without looking toy-like, the yellow here is great!

Thank you for the kind words.  I agree that some colors are more challenging than others - I wasn't very happy with the yellow until I started to weather it.

Update: Today, I took the final workbench photographs of the Eagles Nest Depot build.  I will make the final workbench changes from these photographs and then move the model to the layout for final detailing. So here are the photographs:
