(F) Modelable concrete and brick sheds

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

(F) Modelable concrete and brick sheds

Hey Y'all;

Here's a shed, of flat roofed configuration made of poured or cast concrete, concrete block construction joined with an older shed of brick and stone construction.

There's also evidence of removed additions. There are filled in windows. Wonder if the brick side might once have had upper level.

Complete set of 24 photos is here:

Here's a couple:

I think something based on it may just appear on my layout.

I thought this building was worthy of inclusion in this thread for being different/oddball:

Just needs some tracks out the doors, to make a great loco shed!

Hmm, I wonder if it was originally a blacksmiths, as a sprog I lived near a smithy with a similar horse-shoe door design.

I Hope no one minds but I have stuck the Cheshire Bearings pic in PHOTOSHOP and taken out the distortion as best as possible so that someone can make a printie out of it. It seems to have been shrunk down so if anybody wants it back at full size they will have to let me know what I've done wrong.

If anyone wants me to work on it more I might get the time later. Am working on a set on Granite cottages for Printies as well.

I'm looking for that decrepit look. What, I just need to look in the mirror?

It's a bit big to embed here.
