Default 3D Printed Canadian Pacific Station in Use

Hello,
We had the first for this year of our local steamups here today and I was able to finally have my Canadian Pacific station put to use.
I think that I will make the platform a little darker as it looks rather 'grey' to my eyes.
Cheers,
David

Magnificent David, that looks fantastic and much better than that cardboard mock up that seemed to appear in a few video's. What seemed like a really huge building when you were making it now seems smaller placed in the outside "real world". You're right the platform gray is a bit clean and bright, in the photo's anyway.
Love the figures and the vehicles, obviously a very busy station. What's next maybe a British station to alternate with when you run British trains or more Canadian line side structures?

David, I just viewed 'Deltatrains' video of that steam up and your station looks great especially with that Canadian Hudson hauling a long train running through. Looks like a great day had by all and I miss a group steam up as we are still in lockdown here so you lot are very lucky.

Thanks Russell.
Yes Peter's movie shows off the station very well. As he arrived early, I also gave him the job of populating the platform with all the people, animals, platform carts and luggage.
We feel very fortunate that we feel safe enough to get together but very carefully, just in case.
Keep safe,

Thumbs up

David, it's been great seeing the evolution of your station from paper & cardboard mock up to a bunch of 3-D parts to the beautiful building that just shines on your layout. (Yes, I watched the video the other night as well.)

Makes me think that gee, maybe if I had the plans, and a good 3-D printer.. and something else.. what was it?

Oh yeah, your incredible talent.
