January with the 'elevation' of the ground over the track loop at this section of the layout, the creation of the platforms in March, the construction of the bottom two floors of shops in March/April, the completion of the terminal structure in May, and really working on the overhead canopy and various lighting and construction problems for the past two months!
Below you can see some of the challenge....the station needs to sit flush with the ground on top of two layers of shops. The wires also need to be routed to get below all of this stuff to get to the power!
Berlin Hauptbahnhof, I was not trying to replicate it. I did like the curving canopy and how it extends out over the front of the station. In the below photo you can see the canopy coming out to provide a bit of protection at the entry:
In fact, I hope, hope, hope to take a break from scratch-building for a long time! Anyway, some more touch ups and some details and I can start to move both passengers and trains into the new terminal! Whoohooo!!!
