Most of the main line(s) have been ballasted over the Easter period using Geoscenics 00 gauge ballast that looks about right to my eye. It's been glued with the standard watery mix of PVA into which I'd stirred some grey paint mix to tone down the appearance. The remaining ground has been textured with ordinary sand and painted dark grey. Further work will be done to add patches of grass/weeds etc.

 

The WD and the Black 5 have recently been weathered by "Grimy Times" and look great! Also note chevron on distant signal arm now correct - a fine pointed felt tip did the job!

Barrow crossings made from balsa were installed at each end of the platforms before ballasting....

Chimneys made from wooden dowelling have recently been added to all buildings and this has made a huge difference in appearance

Finally, a view looking down the length of the station area with the WD taking the Marylebone line with a loaded coal train.
