  1. Ha ha! Yep, I'm thinking a bit of plastic tube flattened into an oval will work for that. I already have several small ones made from dowel dotted about the layout.
  2. So continuing the Aldersgate project as an "homage" to Liverpool Street Station, the GER terminus in London. Here's the stationmaster's office on stilts. As almost everything else, it's all from scraps of card.
  3. Yes! And I believe that there was a similar smaller structure which was the stationmaster's office and which I am intending to represent. It will connect to what, in the above photos, looks like a diving board from the higher level currently on the model.
  4. Many Thanks. Yes, that's the inspiration for that part. I have scrunched (technical term) it onto the back of the Great Eastern hotel although in reality I think it was in another part of the station. When I first built the layout in another location it was much longer and incorporated a full oval which went via that "hole".
  5. Just need to dirty them up (or down?) now.
  6. Tricky stuff this plastic, getting the hang of it a little now!
  7. Many thanks, btw, I know it's not quite square yet!
  8. Started work on the walkways and stairs which were a feature of the old Liverpool Street. As can be seen I am kit bashing Ratio platform bridges. This is just the first offering up to get an idea as to what they could look like. I will probably paint them dark blue although in 70s I remember them as red. If not blue then the LNER cream and green would probably be appropriate.
  9. Very charming. This has the feel of Colchester Town which would be my prototype of choice if I wasn't already fully committed to a London location. There's an S gauge layout which is similar on the exhibition circuit called Abbey Street which is worth seeing although these pictures don't show it off fully. It's in the Chelmsford area. http://www.s-scale.org.uk/gallery28.htm Andrew
  10. Thanks, I'm going to do an update video around the whole thing to show progress so far.
  11. Haven't done this for a while but here's something for those like me who like a little lockdown trainspotting...
  12. Busy day on the market near the Aldersgate terminus
  13. Still fiddling.....and a gate has appeared. If you look at the workbench at the back there's a vice. "What's under the tarpaulin? The last bloke that asked what's under the tarpaulin." (To be said in best Ray Winston voice).
  14. Finally getting round to sorting out the cafe's yard which has been sub-let to a jobbing builder. More junk to come!
  15. Thanks, that's kind. I think very much the same regarding many of the layouts on this site. Every week I find something inspiring which I had not seen before. I am in touch with a guy in Scotland who is doing Liverpool Street for real, not just a small taster like my Aldersgate is! If we could harness all the energy shown on RMWeb we could probably abandon fossil fuels in about 6 months! Andrew
  16. BTW the loaves in the baker's shop are mustard, black pepper, cumin and fennel seeds!
  17. Couldn't resist offering up the row before I added gutters and chimney pots. The building on the end is from the Mile End Rd in East London and Assembly Passage ran through the block as shown. I used to walk up the passage where there was a pickle factory when I was junior school age. The property is a restaurant but I have made it an homage to the 24 hour Beigel Bake which has been in Brick Lane since the Ark.
  18. but it's like writing on a blackboard, you get so up close and intense that when you stand back it's possible to have written "psot office!
  19. Couldn't resist offering up my work in progress! Not unhappy with the proportions.
  20. Hope you mean the "graden" in the prototype , or did I miss something, always possible.
