Untergroeningen: Station Building

Over the last few days I worked on a blueprint for the Untergroeningen station building based on Google Maps, and photos from the Web. Wikipedia Commons, Eisenbahnfotograf and Vergessene Bahnen proved to be particularly helpful. I finished a draft of the walls tonight, made a copy and taped them together.

Below is my rendition of the street side photo at the link on Vergessene Bahnen. Of course, the (somewhat complicated) roof is still missing.

Here's an overview as seen from the aisle with the locomotive shed mock up in the background. Quite attractive.

Here's a shot similar to the lead photo on the post from last weekend. The angle isn't quite right, the lens is too high, and I should be "standing" between tracks 2 and 3, instead of tracks 1 and 2. However, what can be seen of the building and the overall arrangement matches quite nicely with my version.
