Hi Tony, the only wood on the platform is the balsa sides.
That and the ply station and goods shed are issues despite being given many coats of shellac before painting.
They will be replaced with styrene ones eventually. All my styrene structures have only to be painted occasionally.

Yes, I have been there and watched a couple of trains running one day.
Long trains with bogie mount couplers will tend to pull the bogies sideways causing the problem you describe.

You can read the materials used on my layout on the start of the other thread...very little wood.
