Here we follow the progress of WD 90065 as she waits for a clear road  and then slowly picks up speed and heads out into the country

Labouring on with a long train of mineral wagons she finally crosses Felldale  Viaduct and eases away into the distance

       Returning to the Station Yard we see the 1F on duty and marshaling the goods wagons

      While the  0-6-0 sorts out the wagons I try to learn how to sort out the photos with this new system.

                So hopefully the next photo will be below this caption.

  OK so far I'm getting used to it now.

         Now the wagons have been sorted the J15 calls in to collect the empty coal stock

           And then heads out with the stock.

   On the subject of marshaling can someone tell me if there is a lamp code for an engine working solely within the confines of the Station and Yard.

I recently came across this Laser Cut kit of a Woodmans cottage which seemed an ideal addition to fill a spare space on the layout, so it was duly built and weathered.

In order to create a little cameo scene I then sorted out a couple of suitable tree armatures

The footprint of the cottage was then scraped out of the grass so that it bedded in properly in the field.

 The Tree Armatures were then trimmed to fit the site and built up by gluing seafoam sprigs to the ends of the branches followed by a spray of light brown colour.

 When dry they were sprinkled with layers of blended turf held in place by firmhold hair lacquer.

Finally further work was done by adding extra vegetation to the cottage and the field to try and create a more natural appearance,

And heads out across the viaduct.

One photo this morning, the Derby Lightweight prepares to depart with the first train of the day, it's cold, dark and there are not many passengers about.

Time is a little flexible at Byford (it has to be to give me an excuse to run a wide variety of stock).

So today we have gone back to the early fifties to see the ex GNR Atlantic arriving.

Today we visit the new Diesel Depot (which is still being built) where we see Deltic D9011 at the refueling point.

Then we cross over to the shed where the LMS Twins are being prepared for duty on The Royal Scot, just need the headboard setting straight and they will be ready to go.

19 hours ago, lmsforever said:

You have been busy looks great like the house and trees.

Thanks, I got the idea for making the trees from the Little Muddle site (superb work) as its the best method that iv'e come across.

Its a little fiddly but you can make very realistic trees fairly quickly and i'm getting a bit past spending hours making trees from twisted wire anymore.

Although they must have been taken on different days as the load is different.

A couple of different photos this time from a new perspective and all featuring Duchess The City of Liverpool.

The first uses the road bridge as a frame to view the station, brave or foolhardy photographer339668484_IMG_0888(2).JPG.328709fad1203dac93ecc75c115871de.JPG

And the next two are taken from on the road bridge looking down on the station.

These seem to work quite well but could do with the background elements tidying up to cover up the exposed wood framing.

I really liked the recently introduced carflats so I gradually acquired three of them and fitted them with a selection of Morris Cars to represent a factory delivery.

Here we see D137 The Cheshire Regiment approaching with a mixed train including the carflats.
