During a family vacation several years ago, I photographed the former Canadian National Ry. Fenelon Falls, Ont., station. This building stands on a now abandoned 55-mile-long rural branch line that once connected the town of Lindsay to Haliburton.

The station houses an art gallery and now has board-and-batten sheathing. However, I’ve found several old pictures that showed the station was originally covered with Insulbrick or some other type of simulated brick siding. See www.niagararails.com.

When I took my photos I didn’t have a tape measure with me, so determining the station’s major dimensions became a matter of counting boards to estimate the window and door sizes and the wall heights. Thus my HO model is a scale 48 feet long, 16 feet wide, and 16 feet tall at the ridge. The operator’s bay is a scale 9'-0" wide, 4'-6" deep, and 16'-0" tall. From this data, I made my own scale drawings.
