This building is a brutalist train station, based on Preston Bus Station. At the front of the building curved balconies form the unique look of the structure and overhang the entrance.
Inside (pictures to be added shortly) contains a waiting area and ticket desks. The platform itself is open air and the glass walls slide open, allowing a better look inside.
There are two levels of car parks above the station. This is built using SNOT techniques and has a ramp leading from one floor to another. More pictures will be added soon.
Closer view of the curved balconies. The animal tails are used to mimic the appearance of the ones at the real bus station
Brutalism is one of my favourite styles of architecture and this latest building is based on Preston Bus Station which is sadly facing demolition.
This building has been difficult to construct, mainly due to getting the look of the curved balconies right
The curved balconies of the car park with blue sky above. This was taken on a day where heavy snow is later forecast
On the platform these two workers are fixing a broken vending machine with a police officer to the left.
Behind the glass wall is the waiting room and concourse. There is a ramp behind two turnstiles allowing access. This glass also slides out of the building so the interior can be accessed
This police officer on the platform of the brutalist bus station is from the latest series minifigures
Here is the train station after a night of heavy snowfall:
Wow, I've found this having browsed from today's MOCOTD. I used to use Preston bus station regularly as a teen and then the multi-storey car park when I turned 17 and started driving, so I know the rather manky concourse level and ramps very well. Great rendition of the building.
This looks incredible! What an awesome building - can't wait for more photos. I can't say I share your love of the building style in real life though - they might look good in 1965 but quickly end up as decaying lumps of dingy grey. 5/5 for yours though : )
It looks beautiful, very promising, are your trains for this posted? can t wait until you show more, I like the distributing machines, I did some as well, I put 2 in mine, I m almost finished, you can see my xl-5 passenger train as well, good luck!!!
