New arrival today for AS, a nice clean Central Trains 150 Unit, I fitted the Sound earlier, but forgot to do the Crew and Passengers, so you will have to imaging the Driver is somewhere inside chatting to the Guard and the Passengers have found somewhere better to go than just the Fiddle Yard.

I've also wired up all the Points as far as the Switch Panel, so that will be a job for tomorrow to connect them to the Switches.

Switch No 1 will is for the Colour Light Signal at the end of the Platform, the other 5 will be for the 6 Points with the Crossover for the run around wired as a Pair as per a prototype would be.

I've also left room for a couple more switches in case I get some Ground Signals or Yard Lamps later on.

Not even a hanging basket of plastic flowers? ( love to see you fit real growing ones!)

You might as well rip up the tarmac and paving slabs. Then just have mud on the platform!!

A very pleasant morning with an Hour up at my old Club helping my mate John lay some Track. 

 

Then it was a nice couple of Hours in TOPS which involved;

Plasticard,

Scrap wood,

Masking Tape,

PVA.

Hot Glue Gun,

Grey Paint,

Dark Green Paint,

 and some lateral thinking.

See told you all didn't I. It's one of those horrible bus shelters. Oh how I hate those shelters. Even the clasp buildings are better than the bus shelters and that's saying a lot.

Sorry Bud, it had to be done. I did look at some proper Buildings, but most looked to big, or Old fashioned.

 

Tell you what I'll do, I promise that the next Layout will have a proper Southern Style Station Building, trust me, I'm an Ex Car Salesman.:o:D

Phase 3 of the Platform and Car Park was done before Lunch today.

 

As all my Scenic stuff is Down Souf ready for the move, I had to go out earlier and buy a load more, still it will be needed for the next project I hope.

 

I'll photograph it again tomorrow once the PVA has dried.

Do you use PVA neat or do you water it done 50:50 and use a spray bottle or a combination of the two?

 

Just wondered what your preference was

Just neat PVA on this one, normally I would give it a Water / Washing up misting, but I haven't got a mister bottle yet.

A quick look this morning before our visitors arrive from Doan Souf for the day.

 

The PVA is almost dry.

O.K. Guys, make the most of these 3 pics, as you probably won't see this 205 Thumper Unit again until I start the New Layout after we've moved Doan Souf.
