Cheddar P4 - January 2023 update

Happy New Year and all that to everyone. Hope 2023 is kind to everyone.

Now that we're halfway through January, I thought I'd update you with progress on Cheddar, which is entirely scenic at the moment.

The station master's house has been finished, painted and planted in the garden, which has been added without going overboard. The idea is for it to be in the background after all. I did spot the mistake of having the chimney on the gable end with the windows. Doh! Still it was corrected without too much bother.

The stone loading point is more of less done. Just some weathering down the sides as it's all a bit too clean at the moment.

The scenics to the up side have had some layers added from postiche and scatters, fixed with spray lacquer.

There are two permanent way sheds presently in the paint shop which will be added here.

I've made a start on the surfaces of the down yard. These again use the excellent range of quarry dusts available from Attwood Aggregates which are laid into a PVA glue/water mix. it can be sanded down when dry. The cattle dock has been added from a modified Ratio kit and the fencing has started to go up.

There's a protective rail to go on the edge of the mileage siding. That's a simple piece of rail and a Palight base.

Lastly the station approach has the paving cut and ready to stick down. Again, embossed Palight and sprayed with a rattle can.

I'm getting to the point where one of these boards can be crated back up and the next one bought out, so I can finish the station itself and finish off the platforms too.

All very exciting!

Hi Rich

Dulcote Stone (DS) and one marked (WE). Not sure what that one is.

The fencing is EZ line superglued to Evergreen posts. I use a jig to space the 7? strands as GWR lineside fencing
