The privy is an important additive to any scene. 
Agree that many modeled are the humorous type. 

Displayed my Strawberry Mountain layout at Lauitzen Gardens this weekend,
for UP Railroad Days. 

It has a privy with one of my hand carved figures.

Great job on that figure, Bob.

Even in 1/2" scale, the figures are still quite small to carve by hand.

While we're at it...here's one of my 1/2" scale "two holer" in disrepair...





Yep, this one is a model of a real one from down in the Texas hill country, around Salado I believe.
I built several such structures and mounted them on small dioramas.
Maybe some day I will sell one.
Naaaaw!

My Grandparents had a two hole outhouse with no separating partition between stalls.

Would that be normal for other 2 hole outhouses? 

This made for an interesting go, never knew who might drop in and sit next to you.

Larry, I suppose that it might depend
on whether the outhouse was behind a "commercial" establishment or a private home, etc.
The partition would separate the men & women...?
I have seen them with men and women signs on the doors.
Thems was the days.

We had a two holer at the cabin when I was a kid. 
No partition.

I have also seen a double decker,
I believe it was at a hotel/boarding house.
 
Can't remember where, but it seems to me it was off set. 
There was a walkway from the second story of the building to the upstairs hole.

I still remember the Great Potty Uprising in the NMRA Bulletin mid-to-late 70's...

Just do a Google search for outhouse images...

You'll get all kinds of inspirational ideas.


Maybe we should start a separate thread for outhouses?

Yep, do an internet search and ye shall find many prototypes...even the 2 story ones.
Us folks in the rural areas of the south/southwest still have existing examples of outhouses and other cool old structures.
Just a drive through the country around here and you'll see them.
And there maybe should be an outhouse thread, this one has enough toilet "humor" already!

Well, it ain't no outhouse...but it's close.





From the old Marty Robbins song-"El Paso"-here's ROSA'S Cantina.
Naaw, it ain't finished, or weathered (more of it), or set into the dirt, or weeds growing, etc.
But the basics are here.
Featured at Rosa's is "y mas" or "and more".
Note that outside to the left is an old trailer which is used for the "mas"...you know what I mean.
Also, this is apparently (at the moment) a biker bar with several old Indian bikes outside.
Soon as I build a couple of Army Harleys, they will join the usual suspects.
Maybe even an old Model T somewhere.
And if riding a bike isn't your thing, the narrow gauge main line runs right behind the saloon.
Now I am worrying about the train crew...
they may stop here from time to time for a "drank" and maybe some "mas".
