" Engine house looks good, though not sure about the shape of the doors "










My  'transatlantic take'  on American engine house door shape ...  :shocked:

... went a bit like this ...
... in the  M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co.  Drafting Dept.  :brill:



Foundations are made ...  :)

... still have time to change the door design, if I've screwed it up !  :f:

Reg/Si.

I would not criticise the kit design or anyone’s design for that matter,
and I am sure some engine houses had doors as in the BiS kit.  

However most I have seen are more simple rectangular.
Where they are different it seems to be to allow for extra high equipment,
such as skidders or cranes  to get into the shop.

By way of examples attached is a view of the engine house at Longview.
This did not seem to have doors at all in 1989.

That was the inspiration for my engine house.

Just an FYI,
I'd go against placing anything of value outside a structure if you're modeling the Pacific NW.

Is that a lathe peeking from behind the shed?
That wouldn't be outside as the rain would reduce it to unusable scrap within less than one winter.

I see so may people placing heavy equipment outside on their layouts,
mostly to show the detail that in real life would be hidden inside structures,
but in that climate, nobody would do that.

Similar to Longview, but with doors, was the engine house at Hines on the ONWRR.

Closer to the kit is the engine house at Kosmos. 

But note the height of the door, as this was also used to maintain equipment.

In my collection, the nearest I can find to the kit doors, is this at Railroad Camp,
where the high doors have the angled edges, but are covered by rectangular sliding doors.

Whatever is the case however, I am looking forward to seeing how the kit goes together.
