Proposal: change of use for building
« on: June 13, 2012, 12:03:34 PM »
I always found this closed station king of uglish:



but remarkably similar to the railways depot:



which in turn has a very dated look.

I propose to timeline the (old) depot 1810-1960 and change the closed station to a depot for 1960 onward period.

What do you think?

I like the idea, but what will replace the closed station as station then?

I agree with fabio that the closed station is quite ugly, but I don't think it looks like an old depot... actually looks like an old and ugly semi-closed station. An "old" version for the train depot would be nice though.

Yes I like too to change this station to a train depot.
Just add plain walls or windows on each  side ?
I can make it and transform the building.

Just for information I'm going to make a subway train depot (with 2 periods : 1900->1950 and 1950->~. I will purpose to you soon.

The closed stop could become the NEW depot, the existing depot would remain as OLD depot.
(maybe I didn't express myself well on the point).

Asides, thank you all for your ideas!



EDIT:

@Lubak91

Very nice depots! But I take it they are meant for Pak128.CS?
My favourite is the narrow gauge one.

How did this slip under my radar?

Anyway - I'm not sure about the station being ugly, but a newer depot won't hurt :) Of course it can't be reused 1:1, as mEGa says...

Then old one before 1936, then this one... Then another one post, say, 1966?

Very nice render of depot... oh.. and what are those materials used for wall? Looks likes pink foam. Very nice touch too.
Creation takes good efforts but it is also rewarding practice I find.

V Oh right, they are bricks. Monitor here had little blur image.

Yes, bricks with iron structure (intial material designed by Raven).
For 1966 version I thought creating concrete wall. I'm going to design it.
For another feedback :
change the values of date at your convenience, because I am not very a specialist. I trust your experience. But As Fabio says is good idea may be.

mEGa,

this depot

is surely nice - but I have to have one minor complaint - that grey base from any station makes that depot a bit ugly. Please, give walls full height.
