A good days work...

With rain stopping play in the garden I had an afternoon of painting and doing details. 

 

First job was putting some signs about having printed off my sign sheet

Once I had done a few signs I switched over to painting the dock and bridge abutments concrete grey.

Whilst letting the paint dry I made a start on the arches brickwork.

At the end of the day I put everything back on the layout to see how it is looking.

Thanks for reading

In case you have missed some, here are the signs at the entrance to Ramsgate Harbour. I am pleased to see that your site manager has got his or her Portakabin, a reward for good progress!

That's great thanks Phil! One wonders if there is anything you are allowed to do at Ramsgate Harbour?! I believe catching a ferry isn't one of them anymore although as a child I remember going there once and vaguely recollect a viking longship being present at some prominent place. Would have to go through my dad's 8mm cine film to remind myself! Got to give the site manager a place to have a brew and other welfare arrangements!

Wondering what those signs would look like back in the late 1950s and early 1960s (not that some would exist, of course - CCTV?!)

I think the powers that be didn't care that much back then and such 'dangerous' places weren't covered in signage. You just had to learn quick on the job how to keep yourself safe!
