This is more than a model - it is a working museum diorama.  This should be published in RMC or Scale Rails (not necessarily MR) where real hobbyists will appreciate the attention to detail and the skills to replicate reality.  

KUDOS to you Ed.  🙂  🚂

Thanks Dick, and for the very helpful images you provided me.

Similar to the designing of the bridge and brass parts in CAD and partial assembly help I received from Don at Model Memories, I designed the power plant backdrop model in CAD and had CMR make the parts and assemble the model.  Don at MM and Jeff at CMR were fantastic to work with.  

Jeff at CMR also painted the power plant model.  I hope to be able to continue to work with both Don and Jeff in the future.

I'm working with CMR to build the Cos Cob power plant back drop model for me and I'm looking for the following information:

From the available literature, the Cos Cob Power Plant exterior was constructed of concrete blocks cast on site, tile roofing as manufactured by Ludowici and steel framed windows:

Was the color of the concrete blocks the typical yellow-sand color of New Haven poured concrete of the period, similar to the remaining Load Dispatch Tower?
Although a different shape roof tile, was the color of the tile reddish-brown also similar to the roofing of the remaining Load Dispatch Tower?
Were the steel window frames painted dark brown?

Thanks

For those that asked for the progress on the Cos Cob bridge and related details, I've uploading new images below.  Building the timber pilings and painting of the track will be next up:










What an amazing job modeling this iconic area! Your attention to detail is absolutely breathtaking! Well done sir!

I'm not jealous but I do wish some company would make EP-5 models and the EP-3B model, or is it an EP-4? One of these... Anyways, I wish these models would be in N scale

Perhaps Rapido will make an N scale EP-5.
Here’s some N scale EP-3 conversion modeling:
