Hello Marc
This is a German mass-produced concrete shelter.
It was set in factories, railway stations ect.

Tomasz,

Very nice to this point. What did you use for the grass? Is the shelter door to be red or rust weathered? Thanks.

Very nice! Looks almost idyllic

Two points you could consider in your next railroad diorama:
1. The rails rust to a dark brown colour, older rails would also get soot and oil splashes from steam engines on them which also darkens the rust. Fresh rails could have that orange-brown colour of fresh rust.
2. Them rocks (nearly boulders) between them there ties are way too large
Modern tracks are laid with gravel comparable in size to half of a mans fist or less. Older tracks, especially side lines, could have coarse sand between the ties. A main line for heavy traffic could have had gravel (see comment on size above).
