Hi Everyone.

 

I managed a bit more on the layout this evening, all track is laid now.

I had to cut through the top bit as my loco wouldn't quite fit under but I will disguise this with the bridge.

 

Here is a photo:

The water tower is not permanent, just trying out a few things.

 

More soon.

Hi Everyone and thanks for your replies.

 

I managed to make a start on the engine shed this morning.

This will be made out of styrene sheet and will be low relief as just the front portion will be modelled.

 

Here is a quick photo:

Hi Everyone.

 

I managed to do some more to the layout this morning, I done some more to the main part of the engine shed and just need to add roof, vent, stone work or bricks and paint.

 

Here are a few photos of latest work:

Hi Everyone.

 

I have managed to do a bit more to the layout today by adding a office / mess room to the left hand side of the engine shed.

 

Here are a couple of photos:

Still a bit to do on the shed and I'm not sure if the office will stay, I will see how it looks once I add coal stage and water tower etc.

 

More soon.

Nice progress Jerry. I think the office looks well against the engine shed.

Thanks Clover and Luke for your replies.

 

Luke, it's being made out of a sheet of plastic card I had lying about, I'm trying to use some bits up I've had for ages.

I have been very busy this week but managed to get to the model shop for some more bits.

 

I'm having a modelling day tomorrow as weather is ment to be bad, so I should be able to get a fair bit done.

 

More soon.

Hi Everyone.

 

I have done a bit of scratch building today, I made a start on a small coal stage for the layout, I already have one but its a bit to big.

 

It's made Mainly out of balsa wood and a bit of plastic card, still a bit more to do.

 

Here are a few photos:

I'm a bit further along than this now.

 

More soon.

Hi Everyone.

 

I have finished the main building of the coal stage and painted it, just needs a bit more work / detail and it should be finished.

 

Here is a photo of how it looks so far:
