Granta Valley Railway, Cardboard Mock Up

In my last blog I sketched an idea for the terminus of a freelance tourist line in SCARM. To test whether it will work I’ve printed it 1:1 and mocked up some buildings from cereal packets.

Creating a cardboard mock up is rather an odd thing to do, but it allowed me to experiment with different arrangements and look at things from different angles. Here’s the arrangement I liked the most. From left to right we have: a cafe, the ticket office, a storage container and a maintenance shed for the stock.

I’m encouraged. It combines a sense of purpose with a sense of space and I think this design could capture the feel of a country terminus for a rural tourist line.

It really could work. I should build it.

Months of agonizing over. Decision made. Onwards and upwards!
