(wasn't sure this fit in the 'Other Railroads' section or even at Burnsland at all. My apologies if not)

I've decided that a fun project would be to build a 1:1 replica of the passenger shelter at the Shady Rest Hotel as seen on the television show "Petticoat Junction". Does anyone know if this structure still exists somewhere?

I've spent some time watching re-runs on Youtube and doing screen captures. I think I have enough to work out a usable plan but if the real item is still extant that would make things a lot more straightforward.

I'd be interested in any information, anecdotes, or details that other forum members may have. Thanks!

I can't add anything, but I did always enjoy Petticoat Junction. This will be a neat project! Keep us posted.

Projects in my world are kind of like 'Uncle Joe', that is 'moving kind of slow'. Since I posted the above I've been in contact with Railtown 1897. Not real useful, the PR person could only say it was a prop. I also collected the screengrabs and put them up on a webpage: Petticoat Junction Platform.

In my spare time I've been trying to learn SketchUp to prepare a plan but I'm not there yet.

No other information has surfaced even through a lot of websearching...

Great collection of screen grabs! I think you should be able to make a decent drawing. Post it here when you finish it!
