Thanks, I'll adopt that - with modifications - as Cartermount's police station.

Awaiting delivery from a British eBay seller is a job lot of buildings from plastic kits including a house, church and a Model Power set consisting of a post office and National Bank.

Unless something suitable turns up I'll have to get out my styrene sheets and scratchbuild a small elementary grade school.

I know it might be a bit early for your layout, but this awesome video was posted this morning by fmnut of SP Trainmasters on commuter trains.  I remember seeing your Bi-level build and thought this might be interesting

Very good video - at least I can justify loco + 2 or 3 bilevels.
Interestingly on the commuter sets there's no provision of an office or compartment for the train's conductor.
I'm aware SP never owned any bilevel cab cars so my Con-Cor models with scarlet ends are fictitious but they brighten up things a bit!

Look at 2:48 in the video, those bi-levels are at least lettered for SP, I'm no expert mind, I tend to stay North of the border mainly!

I have a couple of CP trainmasters from Atlas and they sure are nice beasts
