Although Brafferton didn't thoroughly disgrace itself, I have come back with quite a to-do list. There are some fairly substantial tweaks required in the trackwork, especially in the yard area to ensure that running reliability is maintained.
Additionally, I was concious that some of the scenic work didn't progress as much as I would have liked. On the Friday before the show, I even went so far as to steal a coalyard office (Ratio) from my sons N gauge layout just to plug one particular gap!
With the layout still awaiting re-assembly, I thought that I would sort out that weighbridge office this weekend. With no plans or photos of the real Brafferton office, I based the model on a photo of the one at Hexham albeit in mirror image. I also endeavoured to put a bit of an interior detail on the model and made the roof so that it can be removed.
Evergreen clapboard was used for the sides with the profile reduced slightly with wet-and-dry. The tiles are the Noch rubber ones which I have used on the station buildings and the brick chimney is Scalescenes brick around a plasticard base. Bits and bobs of plasticard and paper make up the details before painting and weathering with enamels and some powders.
All in all an enjoyable few hours work!
