    Evening my dear friends, I hope all are okay? Thought you'd like to see how 'Railway Terrace Cottages' may form up, the ubiquitous pub and chip shop ending the 'pudding bag' (cul de sac) street, the chip shop end being 'Cambrian Street itself, further buildings planned for t'other side of the O'ss road. Will paint the doors differing colours and make one or two additional adjustments to individualise the buildings. Regards always,,,, Bob

    Hi.... 'slab' laying continues but thought you'd like to see this.....we were just having a coffee break when we heard 1501 coming into the station on its return northbound leg and 'she' looked lovely in this afternoon's glorious and pleasantly warm sunshine.... Regards always.... Bob

    Hi Guys... Just to say that I haven't forgotten you kind souls, just plodding on with 'slab laying' which isn't the most 'interesting' posting to make updates on, so will post when completed and painting and weathering is underway. In the meantime, stay safe my friends.... Regards always Bob

    That's it for this evening..... Just wondering whether at the extreme right, the slabs would be orientated in the opposing direction, rather than a long line of paving, but that may look odd...? Regards always.... Bob

    Hi.... Just an indication (hopefully this is helpful).... of what the intentions are....? All out of perspective and scale though..! Red area paved set down, yellow spear top fencing grey granite setts with buildings bordering street indicated by arrow...? Stay safe my dear friends, Regards always Bob

    A similar effect to this would be ideal, how would one create the drain covers? Are they available as an off the shelf items alternatively? Regards always Bob

    Hi Lez (and all).... I am minded to keep to a set or cobbled surface for the roads that lead into the station,,,,,using low relief buildings on the street sides. Regards Bob

    Evening guys....Hope all's well...? Have begun to form up the the 'town side' of the station....... .....with a set down / pick up area (here in red)....to blend in with the platform, the said pick up / set down area around the station is intended to be 'paved' in a slab effect similar as used for the platform....... ...... the town side roadways I intend to form up either with granite sets or perhaps or a flat tarmac or concrete effect surface....? Comments appreciated on suitable / appropriate road surface.... Regards always.... Bob

    Hi John.... Thank you for your kind comments..... The back scenes I hope will provide some 'distance'... These scenes painted onto individual sections of card or board to provide an indication of further buildings and perspective...which then can be placed on to the back scene rather than directly painted on to the back scene itself ? Regards always.... Bob
