Rich built two chimneys but one fell off during shipping and I removed the other one for painting the roof. I will replace the chimneys once the station is ready to be set in the layout. There are still a few details I need to add such as the train order signal, finial on the tower dome station name signs at different spots on the station. It also need some light weathering. I'm very pleased with my Waterbury station and am looking forward to getting the scenery and details around it to bring it to life. Thanks Rich for building this nice rendition of Waterbury.
