The Prototype

NJ Transit Station, Allendale, NJ

My Z Scale Station Scene

A relaxing day at the station as passengers wait for their train and a girl sits reading a book as she waits for her father to arrive.

The Train Station

The train stations available for Z scale are just about 100% specific to European cultures.  In addition, the one American style station I found had too large of a foot print for my layout.  I decided to build my own from scratch and modeled it off of a nearby train station in Allendale, NJ.  Below are prototype photos and below that is the station scene I built.  The finished product is only a portion of the length of the actual station, but I feel I captured the overall essence of the station.
