The prototype CR Tower was constructed of brick in 1913 at the north end of the Croton River bridge on the Hudson River or west side of the main line.
I painted the model with Polly Scale Aged Concrete then used Prisma colored pencils to do the brick work color in various reds and browns.
Looking south towards New York City, CR Tower can be seen on the right just beyond the signal bridge in this late 1950s view.
I hope this article inspires those who model the New York Central's Electric Division or just the northern end of it and the Hudson Division. Larry Faulkner is a member of the New York Central System Historical Society, and originally wrote this story for their NYCentral Modeler e-magazine.
The first step is to decide on how many sheets of cardstock or matte photo paper you will need, and place them in the printer. Select Portrait or Landscape, depending on the Pattern orientation, (the way it appears on your computer).
Scoring can be done on the printed side, but you can get much nicer outside corners if you score along the back side.
Before cutting out the sections visualize the assembly and how mating walls will attach to each other. To make the sections easier to handle, you can cut them out to rough size with scissors, then trim more accurately. If you miss any folding tabs, or accidently removed them, you can easily make extras from scrap cardstock and add them in. You will develop your own preferences, but I find it easier to glue the inside walls rather than the joining tabs. Glue sticks, (not the purple school type), a thin coating of white glue, or craft glue will work to assemble the sections. Scotch tape or transparent tape applied to the inside surfaces will help to hold things together while the glue sets. With practice you may be able to line up the wall corners by hand, but a jig can be used as well. Hint: If you know anyone with a framing shop or photo studio you may be able to get some scrap pieces quite cheaply. For some models it might be easier to slide the floor into place prior to adding the final wall. Reinforcements on the inside of walls will make it easier to add on any details such as this ticket bay from Plan 735c. Once you have the right angle established, remove the roof and apply more glue along the ridge. A thin film of craft glue, or glue stick can be used to bond the roofing material to the roof sub-surface. Use extreme care when lining up and applying the roofing material, as it may be damaged if you have to remove and re-position it. The serrated lower edges of the roofing material give a more realistic shake roof appearance. Assuming that the soffit was seated evenly into the underside of the roof, the roof should now sit evenly onto the structure. If for some reason the roof doesn’t sit evenly, you can shim it with strips of paper or cardstock. The Fernridge Garage was part of a lone commercial area a few miles south of Langley, British Columbia. Accurately scaled templates, allowing you to trace out and build to your choice of materials. Overlooking Lake Ontario, the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse is one of the oldest landmarks in Toronto.
Some accounts vary, but it is thought to have been constructed in 1808, and decommissioned in 1958.

Once the site of a small ferry crossing Kamloops Lake, and a stage coach stop along the Cariboo Wagon Road, it is now situated between both the CPR and the CNR mainlines. The town also hosted terminals for both the Gravesend & Rochester Railway London, and the Chatham and Dover Railway. This section started out with some graphic files I created to use on buildings I built or trashbashed, that is, created from non-models such as toys and bird feeders. Since I started posting them, these files have been resized and used by modelers of all scales. Also, one "master builder" of traditional cardboard Christmas decoration houses sometimes called Glitterhouses is experimenting with some of these textures for a more playful effect. Note: For use on indoor railroads (O gauge, On30, S gauge, and smaller), I would recommend starting with the "smaller scale" version of the file when one is available. If you wish to share this resource on a web page, please link to this page, rather than copying these images to your site, which will be an infringement of copyright, and not a very nice way of rewarding our hard work. Antique Brick (344K) This was the first "brick" paper I posted on this web site, and it has been very popular. Regular Pavers - I harvested this image in the old industrial district just east of downtown Dayton (near the Webster Street Market). To make this graphic as useful as possible to most people, I have created three different versions. Flagstone Veneer - Although this looks like the flagstones you see on patios, it is actually a vertical "veneer" used on the wall of an office building in Vandalia, Ohio. To make this graphic as useful as possible to most people, I have created a version suitable for smaller (indoor) scales as well as a version suitable for larger scales.
T111 Siding - Although you could probably use this for antique barn siding, it is actually based on a weather-blasted utility building at a storage rental in Vandalia, Ohio. This texture is available in a Dollhouse Scale Version as well as a version suitable for smaller scales. Stacked Stone - The historic section of the Southern Hills neighborhood of Kettering, Ohio has undergone many recent restorations, including rebuilding of several retaining walls. Note: I took this photo with a 6mp camera, so the resolution was ridiculously high to begin with.
Rough Tin Roof - So-called tin roofs are really sheet steel that is either galvanized (like buckets) or plated with a tin alloy (like "tin cans") .
Rough Cedar Shakes - If you ever wondered what happened to a cedar shake roof that was totally neglected, you have your answer, as well as a totally unique surface to add to any deserted barn or shed on your indoor railroad. Note: Like the Stacked Stone shots above, I took this photo with a 6mp camera, so the resolution was ridiculously high to begin with.
Faded White Painted Barn Siding - A barn in Medway Ohio that had a good coat of paint on it is starting to look a little weather-weary. Again, the "Smaller Scale Version" is just a "shrunk"-down version, so folks who want to use these for O or smaller scales don't have to download the big version and shrink it themselves. Please stop by every once in a while - we have several other textures to upload when we get a chance.
Building a scale house as a project for leisure, work or education takes time and planning to do correctly the first time.. My current modeling efforts focus on the Harmon yard complex located 32 miles north from Grand Central Terminal circa 1952-1953.
There were fourteen Signal Stations from outside the Park Avenue Tunnel in New York City up to the village of Croton-on-Hudson. It was an electric interlocking machine with a 72 lever frame; 31 levers for signals, 29 levers for switches, 4 levers for traffic control, and 8 spare levers. The concrete window sills and lintels are Evergreen styrene strip as indicated in the drawings as are the horizontal trim pieces near the top of the tower. I made an interlocking machine from styrene sheet and a trimmed coat zipper for the machine levers color coded red and blue. I'd like to thank Jack Shufelt for answering my many questions and allowing me to jog his extensive memory bank.
If using a hobby knife make sure you have a cutting mat underneath, and use a steel straight edge. Remember to leave tabs on one of the ridge surfaces as well as any roof surface that needs to be mated to another surface.


The lines were constructed to haul coal from the Broad Top Mountains to the Pennsylvania Railroad in Mount Union. Early versions of this page featured low-resolution graphics that could quickly be downloaded and printed on cheap printers. If you have a dial-up connection, some of them will take a few minutes to download--that's why we provided small versions you could review before you clicked. I originally created it to use on the sides of some shallow buildings that would basically only be seen from the front. It consists of old pavers, probably a century old, that were reset on a street near a shopping district to provide an old-timey feel. This section of road has also been repaved with old pavers to keep the "old-timey" look near the shopping district. In addition to making your own weather-blasted-looking buildings, this texture is also useful indoors for making wooden sidewalks or station platforms.
I've had to reduce the resolution somewhat to get the files to reasonable size, but they're still pretty large.
To protect them further or keep them from blinding passersby, they are often painted, usually green or silver. In addition to the fading and peeling paint, almost every board is beginning to show a vertical depression or crack, which makes many of the boards look half as wide as they usually are.

In 1968, the New York Central merged with rival Pennsylvania Railroad to form Penn Central.
I used Evergreen channel as overlay for the staircase covering Tichy Train Group staircase and landings part number 8208. I printed a scaled down track diagram and installed it behind the interlocking machine like the prototype. The Electric Division had thirty circuit breaker houses on the main line along the Hudson River. Also Mary Lambruschi and the good folks at the Croton-on-Hudson Historical Society for their expertise and sharing their village history. However, since more people have access to better networks, computers, and printers, I've replaced the graphics with commercial-grade graphic files. If you want old pavers that have stayed down for their entire lifetime, try the next graphic down.
The pavers may be old, but the work is new, as you can tell from the fact that the paver manufacturer's name is on the top, which only happened by accident in the old days. The first paint job usually lasts ten year or so; after that, they need to be repainted every few years to keep from rusting through (and once water can get to the underside, all bets are off, regardless).
I used some etched stainless steel I had in my scrap box for the platform section of the stairway. I have also captured several other interesting "textures" that I hope to post here as soon as I get the chance to format them properly, so check back once in a while.
There were the assorted electrical cabinet relay boxes on both sides of the tower along with the cement posts used to support the heavy wires coming and going from the tower to the signals and electric switch motors that CR Tower controlled. Her gentle encouragement stirs my creativity to model my beloved New York Central Railroad and always challenges me to do better.
We may have a preliminary version available that we could "move up in the queue" for your benefit. That file isn't pretty, as you mostly see mortar that obscures the stones, but it may be useful to anyone using this to represent stone walls per se.
