Jouef Goods Shed
Here's a little puzzler for you on a Friday. I've been asked to Anglicise this Jouef goods shed.
As you can see, it's a wooden structure that looks a bit Swiss chalet to me. Most UK facilities would be made of brick, stone or corrugated iron but I found a photo from Ramsey, Isle of Man, that is similar. Wooden construction was quite common in the Highlands too.
This is going to be a bit of a challenge, which is why I'm open to suggestions. I'm thinking that the awnings would be better with ironwork holding them up rather than the wooden ends. On the road side, the awning should be shorter than the rail side.
One advantage is that we're looking for an industrial setting rather than mainline railway so a bit of modellers license is perfectly acceptable. That means I could add some corrugaed ironwork too, which would make it look a lot less European.
Suggestions in the comment please.
