This will be my first micro layout build in N gauge/009 gauge. The layout will be fictitious and will be based around delivering of agricultural goods. 
The track I am using is Peco code 80 setrack and the wagons which arrived this morning are, L&BR No7 Box van and L&BR Open wagon.

I have uploaded a picture of my progress.

Been up early this morning, so I managed to cut and lay the paving section of the goods yard.  There is a slight join but this will be hidden once painting and weathering has been completed.

I have started to lay paper mache on the areas that will have grass and foliage. 
I have uploaded a picture of my progress.

I wouldn't worry about the joint in the paving. Chip up the edges in a few spots and when you weather it'll look like expansion joints.

Thanks Jeff for the advice on the joint area of the paving. I will certainly do that.:good_mini:

Hi today my buffer stops arrived for my micro layout, I’m really pleased with the way they look. They just need painting up and weathering.

Some more work commenced today on my micro layout. 
The paved areas have been painted and weathered, which looks a lot better. The areas to be grassed have been given an earthy brown undercoat.

The build on the yard crane has started today. A few pictures of my progress.

Hi thanks for all the likes, my crane has been built and painted and some weathering applied. I have gone with a sand type ballast, this has been laid this morning but needs to thoroughly dry out now.

I have uploaded a picture of my progress today.:) I’m pleased with the way my micro layout is turning out.
