A fun little project: Station Platform

I've already posted a bunch of pictures of the depot and 'beanery' in Cache Junction, both prototype and models. I remember reading in my research about the platform these two buildings rested on, being made or orange brick. When I took a visit there, sure enough there were some orange bricks still lined up along where the foundation of the two buildings would have been located:

My son is standing where the depot used to be. Here is a black and white shot of the beanery:

Orange bricks out front. I was able to find a survey drawing of the setup:

It shows wood planks making up the platform behind and at the end of the depot. The rest was brick.

So I whipped out my trusty CAD app and designed the whole platform with space marked out for the two buildings:

Again, after it was sent to the laser, I got back a beautifully textured result. Pictures in next post...
