Here is a example of modeling a "selectively compressed" prototype structure, the former Chevrolet Dealer located just North of the AC&Y in Medina. The Gibbs Motors dealership, now gone, was located at the SE corner of Smith Rd. and Court Street. It begs to be modeled which was accomplished by combining / modifying two Walthers Cornerstone Washleger Motors HO scale kits. The prototype photo is courtesy of the Medina Historical Society.

See this area of Bob's layout in a video on the AC&YHS Non-Profit Youtube Channel.
Akron, Canton & Youngstown Railroad Historical Society Trustee Bob Lucas's Model AC&Y Layout. See the Goodyear Zeppelin Comet, a 2-8-0 led consist, Mars light led FM H16-44 coal consist, and the modern day Wheeling & Lake Erie heritage high hood GP-35 AC&Y 107. Most run by shots were centered in the modeled AC&Y Medina Ohio area. This showcases DCC sound at it's finest.
