I have this kit to do next an,overhead crane.
You can see by the box the water tower/coaling stage is a Ratio trackside series.
These kits go together really well and reasonably priced.
Now the sun is shining lots to do in the garden first.

I’ve made lots of Ratio kits. They are excellent. Well I think so.

Wish I had read the station canopy assembly instructions more carefully.
I will have to remove the columns and replace them to reduce the width, when the canopy is in place they are to near to the edge of the platform. My little plastic passengers will be stepping of the train and walking straight into a post. Oh well back to the work bench at least I only made up one kit the next one will be spot on.i hope.

Thought it looked a bit strange but couldn’t put my finger on why.

If all else fails read the instructions. :D

Bad luck. It looks as though how you have it could/should be alright, but yes you cannot knock your passengers out :D

From the image on the Peco website, it looks as though the columns should be in from the edge but flush with the sides. Is that what you need to do?
