Realistic crossing makes way for heavy NS Intermodal @ Springfield show (Southern New England)

Crossing signals by Custom Signals, www.customsignals.com This video shows the full sequence of the very realistic operating railroad crossing on the Southern New England model railroad, a group from Gardner, Mass., as it makes way for a high-priority Norfolk Southern Intermodal train. The train consists of a four-unit lashup of NS diesels with Dash 8-40C 8670 on the point, and a lengthy double-stack intermodal, as it passes over the fully-detailed and fully-operating grade crossing. The double-stack train, like the layout, looks fantastic. The crossing signals feature working gates, lights, and bells. They are also the most realistic-looking signals I’ve seen. This layout also includes operating track signals along the right-of-way. This modular layout is O-scale (2-rail modeling), or 1:48th scale. Recorded at the 2011 Railroad Hobby Show in Springfield, MA.

Answer by mike1942f
Most models are built of foam board which is white paper on two sides. It takes drawings, painting, or pasted on images. Depending on the thickness of the walls in scale, poster or tag board which is thin smooth cardboard, may be used. Doors are normally non-working and windows are drawn or occasionally cut out to represent glass. Narrow strips of balsa wood can be glued on for frames.
If you are talking more detail than a large building in a small space, then by selecting the right scale, you can use siding and architectural pieces from model railroading or doll houses.
