Here's a mockup of a much more minimal look.

I think the size of the short canopy looks quite realistic for such a station. :thumbsup:

Regarding the platform I have to agree with weave that it would be shorter and end before it gets too narrow.
But I don’t think you have to rip it up. Just add a barrier and a "No trespassing" sign there. If you google for "Bahnsteigende" you can see many photos of such barriers and signs.
I think barriers would also be seen on the front platform to the right (maybe with steps for railway workers leading down to track level) and where the middle track curves away from the rear platform.

Ahh that's interesting. I knew the canopy looked odd but it hadn't occured to me the platform tapering to a fine point looked odd too. Actually it wouldn't be difficult to blunt it off if I wanted to. I could also slope it downwards at it tapers towards a blunt end.  :hmmm:

I think I have misread weave’s comment. He only said that the canopy looks wrong while I read it that he means the platform with the canopy. But certainly this narrow part of the platform could not be used for safety reasons, so trains would have to stop to the right anyway, and access to this part blocked off.

Platforms sloping down is typically British and generally not seen in Germany or central Europe. :no:

Useful - I never knew that - thank you!

Meanwhile, pedestrian crossing going in. Now my passengers can disembark on platform 2, go down the underpass, buy a snack at the kiosk (still needs a sign), cros the road and have a picnic on the green 'island' in the bus turnaround!

Well spotted Nick - actually I'm not stencilling, it'll be another secret technique - don't worry the letters will be the correct way round!  :angel:

Right ho.

I've been having a good look at the one-way road system aka the bus turnaround. Bascially the 'return' length of road is much too wide for a one-way single lane.

Therefore I've decided to contract it down by a whole 2cm.

Before cutting/gluing anything I've drawn in the new size and sprinkled flocking to take a look at the new effect.

Here's before:


And how it would look after:

Hi Globibahn,

Loads better  :thumbsup:. Not only from a practical single road sense but the road blends in better and doesn't take over the scene like a runway.

Great stuff.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Thanks Weave  :beers: Yes I prefer it too with the modification.

This hobby feels a bit like being an urban planner sometimes :D - trying to make things as practical as possible within a given space - as well as being a modeller and wanting things to look as conceivable/realistic as possible!

I will never be able to simply walk past the bus/tax/car drop off points of a train station again, let alone the platform endings and underpass arrangements!!! :smiley-laughing:
