That shed isn’t especially small IMO. I’ve seen some short line engine sheds that made you wonder how they got a locomotive in there. The old, pre-1991 Winchester and Western shed is a great example.

Strange how I didn't realize the TA/TNP controllers' cars were wider than the other non rail vehicles (let alone how they fit on what I call the "universal toy gauge"). Given that they have unique wheels with (what look to be) larger tyres, did you have to cut Winston's mudguards to allow the new wheels to fit? Please show him from the side so we can see how the conversion turned out.

I knew this would look more proportionate (in scale). Apart from the thin walls, the clearance above a TA/TNP engine seems closer to that of many actual sheds (even in the series). For example, the TV version of Ffarquhar Sheds has that much space above:

However, Railway Series illustrations (although not consistent) look more like the image with the TOMY engine, so the entrance height is not necessarily too low:

Since I am not good with arts and craft, I used lego to build my train shed.

I like the rough look of 10 cents as Tug boats are not all pristine as they are constantly busy and can't afford to be taken out service  for a long period of time to be beautified. Can't tell from the picture but how big is he?

On another note: I had never heard of this character 10 Cents, is he in the Thomas series or a Tugboat series that I don't recall the name of?

Ten Cents (not with digits) was the presumed main character of an ill fated series called TUGS, which was created by some crew members of Thomas & Friends in the late '80s. After TUGS ended, numerous models made for it went on to be used in T&F (including Big Mickey, the only one so far to be a character in both shows). It predates Theodore Tugboat and has more realistic character designs, not to mention darker and more serious plot themes.

The ERTL Ten Cents is about the same size as the Thomas characters. Only he and Sunshine were made.

Received my Hornby Goods Shed and T-Real is correct about it being a size that fits these trains nicely. Through my searching there are several different variations of the same shed including on from a Hornby Thomas set. This one is new old stock and has a feel of an old English building in the country side with its stone walls. I will Post in my Thread once I have put it together and installed all the window and skylight glazing. The size may also be a perfect scale for the Plakids.

Super, I’ll be interested to see that model completed!

Over the past couple years, I’ve bought a bunch of those small, cheap Christmas village buildings from Dollar Tree and Walmart. They work pretty well scale-wise but they’re a bit limiting because of the winter detailing. Then again, they are pretty cheap!
