|Shady Grove is a small lakeside town diorama under construction.
The diorama is 600mm x 200mm in size.
Once I planned and started building town diorama and waterfront diorama in S scale with N gauge track.
I scratchbuilt ten or so structures for these dioramas; drug store, shoe repair shop, boat shop, truss bridge, etc.
But, I stopped building these dioramas. Withdrawal...
In August of this year, I planned the new diorama and restarted building new diorama, using "second-hand" (or third-hand) structures.
Shady Grove Station
Shady Grove station is a very small station with short platform, passenger shelter, ticket office, and weathered outhouse, of course.
This was newly built for the Shady Grove diorama, not a second-hand structure.
Seven years ago, I scratch-built an On30 abandoned streetcar stop for my friend. (see lower picture)
Shady Grove station is the S scale version of this abandoned car stop.
Of course, this time it is not abandoned.
Main Street Complex
Main street of Shady Grove doesn't have road.
The street consists of wooden boardwalks and staircases, unusually.
Stores and shops stand on the step-formed base.
I show the building process of the complex.
To be continued.
