  1. Funnily I am in the minority of people I know and the hot / cold custard debate........Bananas and Custard no thank you.
  2. There’s no 11 out of 10 button! Superb work, my wife used to work in the Travel Centre at York station.
  3. 50% is ballasted already.... the plan this week is to get the rest of the rail edges painted and maybe start ballasting the rest. The third and fourth rails are already installed Grahame.....I’ve used T gauge rail mounted on PECO track pins that have had the head filled flat. They went in during the first lockdown when we had some great weather did all the soldering in the garden.
  4. I’ve just come across this layout thread, very impressive, always great to see a largely urban layout in N scale.
  5. Finally today a quick tour round the tidied up layout, it’ll show some bits I haven’t shown progress on.
  6. 1 Addison Bridge Place has had a coat of paint for the brickwork. This is the building in its correct location.
  7. With a nod to the tellytubies, tidy up time was successful and the layout is nearly clear of necessary bits and pieces rubbish. Like buses two parcels arrived today, my mechanics and welding figures and some more pavement road markings and other bits from Scale Model Scenery. Earlier in the week supplies from York Modelmaking arrived which included some laser cut windows and doors plus some brick headers and decorative stone edging.
  8. Sprayed up three more sheets of cartridge paper for roads last night. This should finish a couple more boards worth of roads. I’ve some road markings on order along with some more pavement and manhole / drain covers from https://www.scalemodelscenery.co.uk/. These are due to arrive today along with my mechanics for Olympia Motors. Time for a tidy up today, the work bench... sorry layout is getting a bit covered. I’ll probably put the removed board back in so that I can dump some more stuff on it....No......have a running session!
  9. This is my attempt so far...note to self, round windows major PITA! It’s had a squirt of grey primer and the stonework picked out. My circle cutter only goes down to 15mm so that’s why it’s much bigger than it should be. The other layers were created by just drilling through plasticard with a 12mm 10 and an 8mm bit.
  10. Whilst I’ve been waiting for my bits and bobs to arrive I’ve made a start on another building at the other end of the layout. This is No1 Addison Bridge Place next to The Hand and Flowers pub ( not yet built ) and opposite Franks Cafe (built ). This is the building In real life....worked out how to copy pics from Streetview, not possible from an IPad. The image has been squashed up for some reason.....it should be wider.
  11. I know, everything is so PC these days, they probably don’t kick the tyres and suck in air when making a quote!
  12. This is the garage now......if the link has worked correctly, can’t seem to copy a picture off Streetview. https://goo.gl/maps/1dCrCfXy6J7haCVj8
  13. After some.....errr in depth research I settled on a Mintex calendar. Here is Olympia Motors, wall not fitted yet! The conduit that stops in between the windows will have a wall light attached to it eventually. I think I’ll probably illuminate the workshop bay as a feature.
  14. Indeed...so much so I had to check out the months before September!
