I would like to say "Done!" but its really only...almost done! You may have noticed I quit talking about the new passenger terminal for the past six or seven weeks. I took a break to basically get some inspiration and start working on it trying to figure out the passenger terminal building for this area of the layout.
My original idea was this modern, curving and somewhat simple and elegant one or two story structure:
The main materials are clear acrylic sheets, with laser-printer windows and structure on transparency sheet. The transparency sheets are glued to the inside walls of the buildings.
sintra sheets or foam core. On each floor, I glued a lot of angular sections of (usually) pieces of foam core. Although most floors won't be lit, it wouldn't look right if the floors looked empty...even fairly abstract shapes cut from generally unsuitable foam core material is a quick and easy 'interior detail' effect. The floors that will be lit will get furnishings that are slightly more suitable and detailed! You can see in the below photo (mid-way through floor installation) the wiring for the LED strips used to light the interior:
