Talyllyn building for 009

Quite a quick build being that there are no windows to worry about. The gunpowder store which still stands at Towyn Wharf station. As usual there were questions. It seems to have been built around 1900 replacing an older structure. I worked from a 1965 TRPS drawing which includes 'glass slates' as roof lights, though I can't make these out in any of the period photos. Then there is also the question of do you build it as per the original or as now. The door is much wider now and there is a fairly substantial extension. I plumped for a midway point of small door and no extension (though it might get one later) but no 'glass slates'. Would anyone notice these? Just the down pipes to put on and it's done.
