Updates on the layout seem to be few and far of late, ballasting was mostly done over the last bank holiday and the retaining walls & bridge have all but been completed. The ballasting requires a bit more work to finish but is awaiting any infrastructre and other detail, to be done around the trackwork before finalising.

Hello Trevor :)

 

Its nice to see some progress, please keep the posts comming.

 

I like the buildings, they all look nice and square and well put together. I do have a question on the provender shed though, what shape are the plinths its sitting on? It just looks a bit weird from that photo.

Hi Missy,

 

The uprights are hexagonal rod as that is the nearest I could find, although it should be eight sided not six, but since doing then I have found a way around getting them more correct.

 

When nearly finishing the building I realised the panels on the ends are all 6" to narrow, making the building 4mm too narrowhuh.gif sad.gif
