background behind the passenger terminal. My approach has been to find unusual facades or kit-bash / scratch-build my own facades for this area of the layout.
Currently I am working on filling the gap in the triangular space you can see in the above photo. This structure would fill a gap between the bridge and road to the 'country side' (on the left) and the end of the urban area (which is mostly to the right in the above photo).
I am having a bit of an internal debate on the why/how of the actual need for a building in this location as I could just as easily have the street above the passenger terminal merge into the other road. Yes, that would be the easy thing to do! Well, if this doesn't work out, that'll likely be what I end up with! But I like the idea of a building sort of 'blocking' this street as I think it sort of creates a 'bookend' to the urban area while (seemingly) being a realistic issue where city streets and railway tracks don't always result in good plans.
My victim for this kit bash is a Model Power "St Mary's Hospital" that I've been sitting on for years. This is a ubiquitous, cheap kit that is easy to find in the US, so its a good candidate to play with.
On another sheet of styrene (this sheet a type with small grooves in it that would resemble wood slats in a larger gauge) I marked off the spaces to be cut out where my 'letters' will go (which will also be back lit).
