Found some searching 'roof vent' at Caboose Hobbies web site.  Some of the smaller scale ones might work as well as the 'O' scale ones.

why not just make a clerestory right down the center of the roof and use either windows that tilt open or screen door material mesh in the openings.

Grandt line makes an inside funnel exhaust hood for engine houses leading to large pipe with a cap top.  Think you get 2-3 of $8 or so.

Nice trick using the foil to cast surface texture on the walls. Also, that shelf layout is starting to look pretty good!

I love your work on this building, the cast walls and carving of the block-work looks fabulous.

Rod.

Thank you for the kind words, I am a rookie at the "casting plaster" thing....  I will have more up dates in a couple days. I have finished the flooring and the interior side wall. I am now working on the side shop building.  I took Mike's advise and am laying out a roof vent for this, I think it will look right for the period.  Also too, laying out a water tank for the building as well.

Well it has been a few days now that I have been working on the engine house, I have gotten a lot accomplished. I started framing the side workshop and laying out the roofing configuration.







I am making changes as I go along with where I had originally had the doors and windows.  I started cutting the "Wooden coffee stirs" and appling them to the side.







Rough framing out the side door and window.I want it to look likr it was made from whatever was around in the yard.  Nothing conformed, eyed only.

I started the roofing truss next I did square up the sides.




Than I  applied the SUB roofing and it took shape.




I than worked on the rear work shop doors making them like the front engine house ones.




and called it quits for the night. to let everything dry.

I still need to paint the Ticy windows, I need to go get some oxide red for the windows. 

I took Mike's advice and drew up plans for the roof vent.  I thought  wooden louvers as a vent would look good. Again using the wooden coffee stirs.



Than I cut out the top just a little of the engine house to fit the vent in.




Next I need to pick out what roofing material I am going to use and paint those windows.

Goodnight for now!!!

Ryan
