Based off of set 21013 (Big ben) & Saint Louis Missouri's Union Station. I have some parts off to the side for use in the hinged roof, they fit in real life but were being difficult in LDD.
About this creation
Built from 1894 - 1897, Union Station stands proudly as a monument to the history of railroading, and it's home city of Ironwood. Originally served by 8 major railroads and 2 local streetcars systems, the railroad landmark and it's 14 tracks are now served by only 3 railways. Brick Railway Systems, Ironwood Glencoe & Western Electric Railway, & Allied Railway Co. are the last survivors. The entire facility is owned by the Terminal Railroad Association of Ironwood. (TRRA)
The track view shows the switch tower (small tan building) and the addtional two tracks near the clock tower. These were added in 1938, and were well used in World War II as troop trains out numbered passenger trains. After the War, when pasenger traffic went from an all-time high to lowest since the dark days of the depression-ridden 1930's, the side tracks were converted into private car storage & local train pickup drop-off.
Overhead view showing the immense number of switches the people at Tower 1 (the small tan buidling) had to know and use. These tracks lead to a double "Y" switch, for ease in backing trains into the shed. The tracks were originally numbered 1-12 and then A & B for the two extra tracks, but this was changed in 1968 when the station was renovated to include a hotel in and around the Clock tower.
