That station looks brilliant and (having followed your posts) is one of the things which has inspired me. I am not there with the detail yet - but I have added guttering to my latest models!philipy wrote: ↑Tue Mar 07, 2023 1:18 pmPhil.
I detailed my build of this station and all the ancilliary items, back in April 2018. The platform face, platform lamp, bench, windows, doors, fences, gate, fire buckets, gutters, downpipes, drain grille, 'way out', etc, are all printed in PLA ( Trevor uses ABS which should be even more durable):
...and here it is in my gallery entry, as of a couple of weeks ago:
It has all been out in wind, rain and shine, summer and winter, 24/7/365 for 5 years. The lamp post is drunk because it got kicked by a rampaging dog. The platform is growing a nice crop of moss and everything is a bit splashed, of course, but those are the only sign of defects.
Come back in another 15 years for the answer to the third part of your question!
