Courtesy of my Gran, I've been shopping at work and bought the first structures for the layout, the goods shed, to be positioned near the station:
and the loco servicing structures, positioned on the road / roads from the turntable:
Both are Ratio kits
I'm looking at changing the pointwork for entering the goods yard to a Peco setrack, it's a tighter curve, but the largest loco that will be going over it is a 4F 0-6-0 or an Ivatt 2-6-0 or ivatt tank, so should be ok, and makes the length of track I have for the coal line connecting with the canal wharf a little longer giving a better gradient.
so, a bit of kit building for over christmas when I'm not working on the baseboards
yes Richard, I do know you, I've been annoying you for the last 26 years
