Round and Round a new beginning

Recommended Posts

Spent some time spent fitting in the lift out section and putting bus wires into the side pieces.

Railway running over a road just did not seem to  work so swapped out for a plate bridge which will go over a stream. Think this will fit better with the scenery on other parts of the layout.

Made an insert for the river From plasticard and polystyrene sheet. Idea to create a wide but slow flowing river beneath the bridge. Plaster and then coat of burnt sienna as a sealing layer. Bridge abutments made from plasticard.

Too wet and now too cold again for the garage so having tracked down some board and batten sheet will make a start on the proposed depot building. This will be based upon plans of Paoli.

That’s it for today. The rear of the building does not need to be modelled as depot will be hard up against the rear back scene.

Fantastic work, as usual.

 

There were most definitely some bargains to be had at Wakefield. I came home with a four steam locomotives and a load of rolling stock. :)

 

The show was great again this year, as was expected. I am really looking forward to being an exhibitor there next year (it's always one of the best shows to exhibit at, I find. :)
