Seen as though boxfile layouts are becoming popular on the forum, I thought I would have a go at building one myself. I will be using Peco oo gauge track with a Y point.

The theme is 1940s/50s using GWR locos and wagons, a goods platform and siding.

Box files can be addictive, in my experience. I look forward to seeing yours develop.

Hi Clover.

Looking forward to seeing your progress.

Jerry.

Jerry thanks. I have just finished glueing down the track and glueing the supports ready to accept the walled area of the goods building.

Some more work commenced today on my boxfile. Some of the brick wall is glued in place and the goods platform is fitted in place.

If you haven't already found it this site is also worth a look at for texture sheets - https://www.textures.com/

 

The former Mayang.com site was also good for freebies but seems to have disappeared again. However at least some of the items are on the wayback site if you poll back for the 2016 snapshots. See https://web.archive.org/web/20160229180511/http://mayang.com/textures/

 

Hope this helps.

Morning a little more work has been completed on my boxfile sidings. All brick walls have been fitted and a sloping tile roof has been added to the front of the warehouse. The tops of the remaining walls will have some rendering added to finish them off properly. Here are a couple of pictures of my work so far.
