Weathered buildings - photo gallery

Having reached the stage where the buildings for the copper mine require some finishing touches (see How I constructed buildings for the Copper Mine - pending), I decided to start accumulating photos of weathered buildings. At present, my focus has been primarily on corrugated iron, wood and sandstone in my immediate locality - which is where my fictional railway is set (see The Hypothetical Line), but as time progresses I will continue to add photos of other buildings as and when I come across them.

There are some interesting photos already out there in the webosphere, but hopefully this gallery will supplement those and bring together a range of photos relevant to the needs of garden railway (and other) modellers.
