This is a Signal Box. These towers were used to control the switching of the train tracks. I like the stuff Lego is doing with trains but I feel like a layout needs more details like this building. I have instructions for this model on my website.
Hi Brian. I really like this model. I hope you don't mind, but it has inspired me to try something similar. I really like what you did with the steps. I've used the same railing on my Rip's Resturant, but I didn't think of putting it on the regular Lego stairs. Great idea and GREAT model.
Brian, this is really beautiful. It is just packed with small details that make it stand out. The attached shed, and the handrail on the stairs are just two examples of what sets this apart. Regards, your friend, Eric.
