Yes, the old depot is still standing - it is close to the tracks at a bit of an angle, and is very close to the road-crossing.  Here is a photo I took of it this past summer:

Is that a new roof?

Just astonishing work.  I went to college at Shepherstown, and remember this area well.  Cant wait see you flesh out Harpers Ferry and Shenandoah Jct.

Yes, at least it is a relatively new metal roof.  Two years ago, more or less, an adjoining addition was torn down - if you look up Duffields Station on Wikipedia, they have a photo from around this time.  I'm not sure when the roof was put on - a group is trying to restore the depot, but I don't know what their plans are.

THanks Lee - I think I will tackle Shenandoah Junction next, then just to the west there is the Burr farm, with a house built in the 1750s.  I need more practice with scratch building and scenery before I turn my attention to Harpers Ferry, since I want to do a good job with that.  Also, I'll probably have to make a practice mountain to understand how to work with rock castings and carving before I work on Maryland Heights, which is being done to scale in this layout and so is rather large!  Happy New Year everyone!  Bob

So this was your first scenery? Hot damn. We've got a rising star on our hands here boys.

Yes, it was indeed my first crack at scenery, but following your posts and those of many other TRW members really makes the process easier!
