I was obviously not thinking when  I laid the track.  To get the coal stage in I had quite a curve on the run round road.  Then looking at prototype picture, the coal stage is between the run round and the goods siding...Dooooh...

 

So here's a rough version of how it should look....

I think you're going to get a chance to model more than one kind of platform surface - tarmac near the station building, changing to gravel further out...

The track gang started early today.  I set the rails at 42mm between the Platform Road and the Run Round Road, a handy 18mm piece of wood fitted between the sleeper ends as a gauge.  It looks much better now re-laid..

Looking along the 2 parallel tracks the subtle curve at this end is visible.  Hopefully it will give the track layout a slightly more interesting look and at the same time not give any coupling problems (I'm going to have Kadees between coaches).

Using some ply sleepers I had on stock, I roughed out a representation of the coal stage,  It looks the part.  Just need to check out the various pictures that show the framing and get a better idea of its dimensions.

Need to do a bit more before it becomes too hot.

There is a useful picture on Wikipedia, looking from the 'stops' end of the station.  It shows the coal stage and the alignment of the tracks towards the stops.  I need to try and emulate the arrangement.

 

If interest is that the siding appears to have an end loading dock.  I need to check with other pictures.

 

An assumption is that the release road for the run round just had sufficient length for one Terrier.......

Kevin,

 

Yes thanks.  It has some good stuff.  You need to explore the links as they do not always pop up when using Mr Google...

 

Any hints appreciated.

I've moved the coal stage further from the baseboard joint.  Then curving the siding on either side.  I think it looks much better...

The release road was also tried with some Peco Buffer Stops and a Terrier.  Comments please.
