They are nice little buildings. I did one in local stone for our Club layout a few years ago using the 'Pendon' method of card and watercolour using the drawings in Karau's book, but slightly adapted the floor plan to provide a forecourt entrance:
Pretty much done the same with a through entrance hence the awning on both sides. I need to do a signal box but not seen a stone box yet plenty of wooden ones with a stone base, so that's the way I think I will go. Not sure about a goods shed as my loop line goes into a bay platform for unloading luggage milk and carriages and can be used for the railmotor as well. Its a country terminus called Bamfield. Taken from the book. To Serve Them All My Days, by RF Delderfied. About a minor Public School in the Devon Somerset border country just after WW1, so can give me an excuse to run bigger trains than the usual as well as my GCR stock as excursion traffic from the midlands.
