Ah, the age old question of pale or red bricks?

This link shows a pic of an actual narrow gauge shed (for a Latvian peat line), which I have also used for inspiration for this project. It is from the Russian Narrow Paravoz website ... RU#picture

One of the things I have noticed while browsing around Russian railway websites is the common use of pale bricks for their buildings. I suspect from around the 1970's onwards? Red bricks are also used, but I thought I would go with pale brick to locate the scene a bit more in time and place. In my model the bricks are actually a bit too cream, and should be more grey.

With the brick colour you could go either way, I decided to go pale.
