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... :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.

Junior -  Your false front western-style buildings are terrific!

Junior,
Glad to find your modeling again.
I still cherish the battery mining models you sent me years ago.
Your modeling, is as always excellent.
