A gift from my wife at Christmas and the kids gave me the add-on entry/exit platform. Got it in kit form and it was easy to assemble and paint. I'm going to add an LED sign on the front spelling out the name - BIG DIPPER. The restraining bars do raise and lower in each car but do not lock in place. I placed a figure in the first car and he took a spill after the first dip. Fatal. I guess I will have to glue the people in. Great addition to my growing park. You can see construction has begun on the Monorail system in the background as I won't be able to access it later as rides will block it.

We were watching the movie - Fried Green Tomatoes - and my wife said "you need that Whistle Stop Cafe on your railroad".

Here is a photo from the movie of the cafe.

This is a photo of how the building looks today.
About the only difference is it no longer has the white siding around the base of the brick porch pillars.

Starting with the base cut from 1/4 inch OSB.
The side walls are cut from 1/8 inch paneling and glued to the base.

Strip wood is glued to the sides of the roof to hide the rough edge of the paneling.
The front porch is cut from OSB and strip wood is also glued to the sides to give it a smooth finish.

The porch top of the porch is covered with a piece of 1/16 thick balsa wood that is scribed to make it look like boards.
The porch roof is built and mounted on the building.
The porch support columns are carved out of a piece of wood and one of them is shown mounted in place here.

Here is the finished model of the building.
