Details, details...

So today I carried on the road cone production line as well as putting more signage about the place and making a couple of extra stop barriers for the lower Linkspan.

(cone and barrier production line) 

 

I also added some more bases to some of the cones to make it look like they have been stacked up on each other. 

 

The next detail was pre-bought. Some grit bins from scale model scenery.

(a pack of salt / grit bins. I didn't feel able to scratchbuild these at n gauge) 

 

I placed these at the top of the ramp and at the ends of the Linkspans where a bit of salt/grit on a icy morning might be appreciated.

Finally I added the signage and lifting barriers to the entrance of the lower Linkspan and some more signage to the upper linkspan.

It might be time to do a bit more das clay work on another part of the layout to progress things on a bit.

What makes your model work so well is your attention to detail together with the plethora of signage, road markings, barriers etc which simply scream out "modern day H&S". The close up detail is just as good as the overall impression, one adds to the other and vice versa!

Many thanks Steve. Trying to give that heavy hand of officialdom feel that these places have now without over egging it. Glad you like it
