I wasn't sure I really wanted a stone station, but it's named after Carl Fallberg, and so is the line of Minitrains American HOn30 locomotives and cars...so it would be wrong of me NOT to use it. Right? Now that I have it mostly together, I'm liking the idea of using it simply to add some different textures to the layout, as most of the structures will be wood, it will be a nice change to have a stone station to break things up a bit and add some visual interest.
Tomorrow is back to the cube farm after a long holiday weekend. I'm not looking forward to it any more than the next guy. It was good to get to the bench and work on something different, an easy kit where I didn't have to think too much about anything other than the repetition of laying strips of shingles, and making a mess of the bench with paints. It's therapeutic. Sometimes designing my own stuff can be just as stressful as work, so taking a break over a holiday after stuffing my face with food, and decorating the house for Christmas by throwing together a little station kit was a very nice change of pace.
