Georgetown 1880 as a layout?

In my previous post I mentioned the engine shed at Souris West. A similar shed was incorporated into the first Georgetown station. I remembered a map of the Georgetown station that was included in the infamous Illustrated Atlas of Prince Edward Island.

In the above excerpt, the mainline from Charlottetown enters a run-around loop shown on the top-left. This station did include a spur down to the wharf and that reversed off the station siding toward the bottom-left. The map is nicely annotated and you can see where the shed fits in. The station would be similar to the one I drew based on the first one built at Tignish and featured in an earlier post (click here to read that post and see the drawing). This entire station fits nicely in the space I have available and would actually be quite fun to try and build. While all of the railroad buildings are gone, many of the surrounding ones remain.
