Cheddar P4 - June 2023 Update

Afternoon peeps.

progress has slowed a bit and been limited to detailing of the station building.

The train shed has been adorned with signs, posters and timetables and after a couple of attempts, I’ve got some representative gas lighting installed and working. These came from eBay and are of Chinese origin. They just need painting and tweaking a bit.

The platform lamps are from Kytes Lights and are the best I could do to match the original GWR gas lamp columns and replacement heads. Telegraph poles have started to be planted too.

I’m currently building the coal pens for the down mileage sidings but haven’t yet taken any pictures. Likewise the running in boards.

I keep thinking I’m at the point where I can move on to the next board but still a bit to do yet!

 

My Accurascale siphon has arrived any very nice it is too. Not to mention an easy conversion to P4. As for the K’s E116 B set… well it’s kind of getting there!

Some great views on the way here. I wonder why the structures were so tall - was there a first floor or just a very high ceiling?

Hi Mikkel

The building behind was not so high, it just shared its outer wall with the train shed wall so doors and windows look disproportionately lower.
