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 scratch-built ten or so structures for these dioramas; drug store, shoe repair shop, boat shop, truss bridge, etc.
But, I stopped building these dioramas. Withdrawal... :td:

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.

Many thanks guys,

Sneeze, cough、fever, headache..... I think I've caught a cold.:sad:
I'll apologize for an answer's becoming slow.

All structures in the pictures were scratch-built using some commercial parts.

Please see a picture of the barber shop as an example.



I used Grandt Line 1/4" scale windows. Walls are of plywood.




It is easy to build!










Completed barber shop. But, it needs interior. :bang:

To be continued.
